Thru Coachnet found a nearby Cummins and was able to drive there. They were at a loss and we agreed it was probably a stuck relay or ?? so off we went for about a half mile when same happened - so again with aux batt sw drove back to Cummins. Again they were at a loss, but together we tried to figure what was the problem. Took out electrical diagrams then checked alternator, batteries and whatever else we could think of - - - then when we about to use TNT, checked a solenoid under driver's window outside on BMC, and found it erratic!!!! Half hour later replaced the part and off we went - some 375 miles for the day.
Service manager at Cummins (Dwight ??) was superb and hung in there and put us at front of line. He's our hero.
