On my 2552, the strip lights over the beds, sofa and cabinets beside the door are turned on when I start the engine. This happens despite the battery switch by the door being in the OFF position.I don't want to drive with the lights on, and it is a pain to start the engine and then turn them all off.Any ideas what is going on here and how to stop ignition turning on the lights?Thanks.Rein
Thanks for the information. When my Phoenix comes out of storage the battery switch is off.I should enter the coach, turn on the switch, turn off the lights, then start the engine and drive away.Rein

Hello DONC13I think you have your switches confused. The white switch on the dash is the one that manually controls the solenoid under the coolant overflow bottle. That solenoid also acts as the battery isolator so when you start the coach the alternator can charge the house battery. This charging circuit however does not go through battery cutoff switch by the door. So if you have the battery switch off and start the coach it sends 12V power back to the 12V electrical distribution panel and that is how Rein's lights were lighting up (when he had the 12V battery disconnect switch open). All you have to do is turn off your battery switch start the engine and check for 12V at the 12V power distribution panel. You will have voltage.... Then if you want to go one step further, disconnect the yellow wire with the red stripe from the solenoid under the coolant overflow bottle and try it again.... No voltage at the 12V power distribution panel. You are correct that the propane/CO2 sensor gets power from the 12V power distribution panel on newer coaches, like my 2017, it actually has a 3 amp fuse.Very RespectfullyLance
