Intellitec BIRD for Sunseekers and Foresters

A few weeks back there was a thread discussing the Class C Sunseeker/Forester titled: Charging your house batteries. One component that was discussed was the Bi-directional Relay Delay, which controls the connection between the coach battery system and the chassis system. The BIRD allows the coach’s convertor to charge the chassis battery, and it allows the chassis alternator to charge the coach batteries. I posted a link to information on an Intellitec BIRD that used to be installed on Sunseekers and Foresters. Our 2011 Sunseeker has a BIRD with a different part number: 00-01000-000. Intellitec recently posted a download PDF of their Service Manual for the BIRD in our Sunseeker. It may still be used in current production units, but I have no way of checking that at the moment.
A link to the Intellitec web page that has the link to the PDF download follows.

Note that the Intellitec diagram shows relays between the relay controlled by the BIRD and both the coach battery and the chassis battery. Only the relay controlled by the battery BIRD is used on the Sunseeker and Forester. (By coincidence, Intellitec sells these relays.)

It's behind the panel on the left side of the lower step.
