Coach Battery Solenoid

I have a 2002 Forest River Reflection on the Freightliner chassis.

I am having problems with the coach battery solenoid.

Does anyone know where it is physically located on this unit?

Thanks in advance.

What its doing

When i take it off shore power and put it on battery the lights stay on inside for a few seconds and then the solenoid releases. You can hear it release and you can hear it try to activate with the switch.

I can trace the click, but thought somebody might have had same problem and know where it is.

Hmmm normally they would be very cl
ose to your distribution panel and or batterys.
It almost sounds like your transfer switch if equipped is bad imo

Not sure tho

transfer switch

I took off the solenoids and tested and they are fine.

I went to the Transfer Switch and it clicks when the power goes off.

From what I read about Transfer Switch it controls the transfer from shore to generator. Does it also control transfer from shore to 12V?
