Solenoid

I was wondering just what the symptoms were of the disconnect solenoid was. I have had 6 mechanics trying to figure out what is wrong with my 24.1 Axis (2016 Ford Motor). My symptoms are:
No lights on the dash
No clicking sound
Unable to use Emergency start
Whatís been done was a new solenoid under the hood that goes to the starter
Currently the only way to start it is to by pass this solenoid with a screw driver which is a 2 person operationsóso I either need to find a friend to travel with me or get it fixed.
So please what were your symptoms or are these the same thing (mine was under the dash. Thanks

Hello,

I read an old post of yours.

Did you ever find where the chassis battery disconnect solenoid was located? Trying to find it on my 2011 Thor Ace 29.1

Having the same problem you were. No power unless connected to shorepower of generator turned on.

Thank you,

Thank you,

I had a similar problem recently where my batteries weren't being charged when plugged into shore power but I did have the 12 volt lights in the coach. My initial thought was the battery disconnect solenoid which I couldn't find. I called Thor and was told that the solenoid was in the Battery Control Center which is located in the engine compartment, drivers side upper corner. Mine is a RV Customs Product, model TH-1020. Go to their site and download their trouble shooting guide. Their customer service was very helpful.



BUT before you tear into the Control Center, check your grounds!!!! My problem turned out to be a bad ground connection to the frame in the coach battery compartment. The connection appeared good and were tight but it was not making good contact a/c rust. I removed all the cables, wire brushed everything, reconnected with new washers and nuts, as they were rusty,and ALL WAS WELL. Hope this helps and good luck.
