Do i have 2 battery isolators ?

Hello, i'm new to this forum and new to RVing.



I bought a Winnebago Warrior 94 22RB, and i am still figuring out how things work.


So i learned a bit about battery isolator, i understand they prevent the chassis battery from beeing drained while still allowing both chassis and house batteries to be charged when motor is running.


But when i went and looked at my RV, i saw 2 battery isolator. Is one used for the battery boost while the other for charging ?



I would like for someone to help me figure out this part of my system.



I added pictures with comments to try and be clear.


Thanks for the help !

You are correct, although I think the term isolator doesn't fully describe them. They're both solenoids, one of which is automatic and will automatically kick in to charge your house battery while your engine is running. The second, is manually actuated via a switch on the dashboard in order to use your house batteries to supply additional power (boost) to your chassis battery.

This write-up, although not Winnebago-specific, might help:

In my case, in addition to the above, I also installed an Amp-L-Start, which is the big brother of the Trik-L-Start mentioned in the article. This allows my house battery charge system (both solar and converter/charger) to keep my chassis battery charged. It isn't a solenoid but uses electronic circuitry to manage the current flow to the chassis battery. It's a fairly straight-forward installation and is a good mod to consider.
