Default Re: Removal of Sofa or not

Connected the new Mini Mom/On/Off/Mom/On switch, when I pressed the DPDT mom-on/off/mom on rocker switch on the monitor panel for the auxiliary battery disconnect relay to shut off, both the Carbon Monoxide and Propane Leak Detectors Lights stay on and I can put the interior lights on.

I believe my problem may be the Battery Disconnect, in order to replace the Battery Disconnect the entire power sofa has to be removed from the RoadTrek, wondering if this is so, or can just the top back part of the sofa be removed?

I'm not familiar enough with that layout to know Ron. Hopefully someone here will be able to help you with the answer.

Have you already tried replacing the fuses on the disconnect?



I have read where some folks have tapped the disconnect gently with something like the handle of a screwdriver to get it to release. Very low tech and I have never tried it myself.

The fuse on the right was blown, replaced it, I am going to try to tap the disconnect gently with a handle of a screwdriver, would be something if that worked, lol.

Early 80's fords had a problem with their solenoids sticking. You would see someone stuck in a parking lot looking lost and offer to help and give the solenoid a little tap and the car would start right up.

Of course that's only a temporary solution. The proper solution would be replacement if indeed a love tap unstuck it.

Bruce as a suggestion I did tap it, no luck, I was ready to get a sledge hammer, but no, I gave up, a good friend and former co-worker, also retired has his on RV Repair Business http://www.bradsrv.com/ took the RT to his shop, hopefully Brad will take care of the problem.
