Look for a battery disconnect for the coach batteries. Most Pace Arrows have them located under the hood on the driver's side in box. There should be some circuit breakers at the same location on the wiring that goes to the DC distribution center.
Check the relays for same voltage on each side of the large terminals. verify that the relay is being latched.
The battery control centers were furnished to Fleetwood in many rigs by Intellitec. Look for model number on circuit board.

I have a 1989 Southwind and it has the latch relays under the hood that are controlled by two rocker switches inside. The rocker switches got sticky, stuck and burned up both latch relay coils. The relays list for $89. each so I took them apart, set them to the ON position and put them back together. I did find them cheaper on ebay but I will get along without them for now.
If you have the rocker switches lub them with silicone spray and they will stay loose.

yea mine has them too, my friend checked the voltage and it would momentairly have voltage across the relays when I hit the switch, guess ill lube the switch.

ok got it figured out, I called fleetwood and they sent me a wiring diagram for the cables. must have a relay that isnt working.

does anybody need a copy of this diagram? I think it works for 86-88 models with p30 chassis
