For the last month it has not been a bother. This week the motor won't turn over and the step doesn't come out when the door is opened by the key.
The batteries say full charge.
We are at a loss as to the problem.
If there is no 12VDC present in your coach, you probably have a battery disconnect system that has a bad disconnect solenoid. If you have a switch either near the entry door, on the dash or in some other control panel that is labeled something like 'house batteries', 'store/use' or 'battery disconnect', then you have one of these devices.
They can be located anywhere in the coach, but are more than likely situated near the compartment that houses the house batteries. The disconnect solenoid looks like a can, usually black, 2-3" in diameter and 3-4" long with 2 heavy wires (battery leads) and 2 light wires (control wires) coming into it. It should be replaced with the same or similar unit.
