Battery Disconnect Switch on Greyhawk

My battery disconnect switch appears to be not working on my 2005 Greyhawk 31S. The lights and most of my 12V systems are working but some do not (such as the radio in my dash). The switch appears to be in the "off" position, but when I push it to turn it "on" nothing happens and there is no way to turn it "off". Do I have a defective switch and is this a big problem to change?

If it is like the switch in my 2012 Greyhawk (and most battery disconnects) it is a solenoid type switch. You press it once to disconnect, the next time you press it it connects, and then the next time disconnect ad infinitum. you should hear a quiet "click" or "thunk" when you press it (if not it means your house battery is low or dead).

I have had this motorhome for about 10 years. It does nothing when I push it. The lights stay on and the power continues to go to all my appliances. I cannot get it to shut off.

How can I tell if my disconnect switch is bad? Is there a way to reset it? It is stuck with most everything "on"; however certain 12V systems do not work and I cannot turn it "off".

Solved the problem. When I closely examined the solenoid after removing the house battery, I found a 5 amp fuse plugged into the solenoid had blown. Replaced this fuse and disconnect switch is working just fine. End of problem!

This is useful information, and with a happy ending. Where was the battery solenoid located? Probably very close to the battery, or maybe where the cables enter the fuse box?

Had to pull out the battery and it is mounted on the top left side of the housing that contains the house battery. The 5 amp fuse sits on the bottom left of the solenoid.

My problem is not fuse it is fine but the battery disconnect switch will turn on then off if I turn it on again it will stay on and will not turn off the appliance unless I disconnect the battery terminals. Any suggestions. I think it is solenoid switch but I don't know where the switch is located. I have 2006 Jayhawk.
