I think my relay is inoperative now. The switch no longer does anything, and the 12-volt lights dim and go bright by themselves with no reason (no change in electrical load)

The switch works, I think.

So I need to check (probably replace) the relay. Anyone know where it is in my rig (Jayco 24SS) - you can save me some search time and guesswork.

It's really wonky. Once I find it, I'll order a replacement and swap it out and see what happens (if it is not too expensive - otherwise I may troubleshoot some more).

In our 2001 Desinger it was hidden behind the battery. If you pulled the battery tray out it was on the back wall. Hope that helps.

2005 Jayco 24SS. The relay on mine is located on the rear panel of the battery compartment. Slide the battery tray out and you can put your hand on the relay while someone throws the switch. You can feel and hear it if it is working. Good luck!

Thanks. I think you just saved me some time and guesswork.

My battery cutoff quit working, also, on a 2005 Greyhawk 31SS. But the coach 12v systems all still work. I assume the relay failed in closed position. If this is true, and I don't need the cutoff switch, then is it ok to simply leave things the way they are, or should I try to bypass the relay?

Not a Jayco but the battery disconnect is located at the back of my battery compartment too. I was just researching the device and figured out that it is an Intellitec part. (01-00055-000) The trouble shooting manual says to check the fuses first! I read somewhere that the switch can be the culprit too. Neither seems to be a reason for the lights to dim while the power is connected though. I'll be interested in your fix.

Just found this one from KIB, the folks who make our tank monitor panels. It looks like the one I found on the inside wall of our battery compartment. Pic doesn't show it, but it incorporates a fuse. Don't know if the fuse protects line/load or control voltage.KIB Latching Relay
Here's a pic

Ours was mounted inverted from this pic. The yellow label is the same on ours and the KIB part pictured.
Guess you could troubleshoot it by simply clipping a heavy gauge jumper across the two large terminals.

I haven't has time to fix the relay yet, but thanks the replies I now have a game plan. Will need to remove the battery to get to the relay. then check for presence of a fuse and investigate. next step, if fuse ok is to jumper around the relay and see if that changes anything. last step is to buy and install a replacement relay.

thanks for the help. I will report on results (but don't hold your breath; I am a notorious procrastinator!)
