Hi...

If you have disconnected the batteries with the switch, they should not be in use. If you have done this, and then can not start the coach after a week, and you reconnected the batteries with the switch, then it sounds like you may need new batteries.

If both of those switches are turned off, there should be no power in the motorhome or chassis. Get a hydrometer and check the cells on your batteries. It sounds like you might have some bad batteries.
