Hi, I would really suspicion the cut-offs. Probe in and out of the switches. Test voltage of batts. Check the connections. Do this and then let's go further.

Checked batt volts. House 13.5, chassis 12.5. Cleaned ground lug. What cutoffs are you talking about. I only have one batt isolation switch by the entry step.

Are you still there??

I was referring to battery cut-offs/disconnects, check for voltage into and out of the switch. You might try lifting the gear shift above the park position and while holding it there, try to start. Then try to start in neutral position also. Let me know what you find out.
