    I have a 1997 Georgie Boy Pursuit Class A motorhome that I bought used in December from an individual. I've lost his contact info, so I'm struggling with a question.

    None of the interior lights, water pump, etc. will work unless I'm plugged-in to electrical power, or have the generator running.

    I have 2 batteries, so I assume there is some way to switch to battery power, but I can't figure out how. I don't want to have to fire up the generator just to flush the toilet :)

    Any thoughts?

    Only two ways I know. 1. There is a disconnect switch(manual) most of the time very near the battries, most of the time red in color and round. 2. A rocker switch at the entry stair or near the power control center that activates a solenoid.

    I have a 2005 model and the switch is a red rocker switch by the first step on the left. You might hav e to let it charge after turning it on if its been in storage mode for any length of time.

    I'd be pretty sure in saying that those batteries are deader than a doorknob unless you've recently replaced them.

    Start by measuring the voltage on the batteries without any power hooked up to your RV.

    get u a volt meter and check the voltage on each battery, but as Tex has said bet they are dead. :laugh: :laugh:
