Distribution Panel



1. Batteries
2. Battery Solenoid
3. Starter
4. Ammeter
5. Solenoid
6. Voltage Regulator
7. Alternator
8. Isolator
9. Circuit Breakers
10. Fog Light
11. Ignition
12. Distribution Panel

Sorry for the crude schematic, but it was the best I could do.

So here is my situation. I recently parked the motorhome after a 40 miunte drive, went to lunch, and it would not start. Starter didnt make any sounds and the battery was fully charged. A mobile repairman came buy and started it right up for 50 cents. He took two quarters and touched the two terminals on the starter. He said there is probably a short somewhere. I found two problem areas, but it seems to be more than that. The distribution panel is not getting any voltage.

Where does the distribution panel get connected to the electrical system?

It is a diesel engine. Currently I am still using the quarters to keep the motorhome running.
