Re: Emergency starting circuit
- We have a 1989 Encounter. We have had this RV for 16 years and have all available manuals for our model. If you can describe your problem in greater detail, I can suggest fixes and email schematics.

One large terminal is connected to the chassis battery at the + terminal and the other one connects to the house batteries' + terminal. The solenoid activates when you push the dash switch, which bridges the connection.

Any help at all no matter small you might think it is, could be of a great help to me. I live in the United kingdom so I am out a bit on a limb when it comes to getting help on Mohomes, the people thing you are giving the a licence to print money. Any way I will wait with anticipation for the info to come flooding in

- Or....you can do it the cheap n easy way....
when emergency start is needed....just run a set of jumper cables from the chassis battery to the coach battery!
and you wont have to worry about accidentally leaving a switch on to drain everything!
