Coach Battery Solenoid

I have the coach, (2007, 350DSBH) plugged into shore power and the solenoid that is located in the battery control box under the step actuates on its own. About every 30 to 60 second intervals. I disconnected it from shore power and the same. I turned off the coach batt switch and it stops.
Has anyone had this situation come up, and if so what did you find to be the problem?
I find this forum to be very informative and helpful to many.
'Thanks in advance for the help.

My 2005 359ts XL battery cut off will reactivate whenever I plug the unit in. In addition, any lights or other 12 volt accessories left on will also come on when I plug in even if the batt cut of is off.

I assume it is normal..

These should give you a better understanding of the battery control center and the solenoid. Hope this is what you are looking for. Charlie

When you plug in to shore power, the converter starts producing 12V which will light up the cutoff switch light and make all of your 12V lights and other accessories available for use. The downside to this is that, with the cutoff switch deactivated, the battery is still disconnected and won't receive a charge from the converter.

This was explained to me by my dealer, when I bought my 327DS last year.
