House Batteries Off

I have a Miramar 37.1 2017. When I switch the house batteries to storage should I hear a click sound? And if I donít what does that mean, a part is not functioning, if so what part can I replace?

Thank you

not always, I just look at my dash from the door and if I see the time is off on the radio screen... then the coach is in store...

Not in my rig. When I switch off or on main power there are no sounds.

Turn on a light in the area of the switch. If the light goes off you are in store mode. If the light stays on start troubleshooting to determine why.

Do you have new batteries in your hearing aides?

Yep. Changed them last year. The VA sent me a set manufactured by Harris.

Thanks. Does that switch turn off the engine battery or just the four coach batteries?

Thanks

It disconnected the house (coach) batteries from the 12 volt fuse panel in the power center. Its main function is to shut off 12 volt power to the electrical brakes on the slide's motors. It also serves to turn off any 12 volt device accidentally left on. Thor MC never installs a battery cutoff for the chassis battery, as that would destroy the memory in the engine and transmission's computers that deal with learned driving habits.

Coach batteries. If you have an inverter it may not turn off power to the inverter or outlets powered by the inverter.
