Are the batteries in the loop or not? Battery disconnect solenoid switch set correctly? I am on my way to my shop so give me about 30 minutes on the response.

H​ave you load tested the batteries to be sure they are good? Most that are over 3 years old are suspect. They won't fully charge or hold any amperage.

they are fully charged
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

So the engine won't turn over or it has no power?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
where would that be
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

U​sually on the dash on the left side. Says "Aux Start" or similar. It hooks all the batteries together so you can use the house batteries to assist the starting.

there is a picture of a battery on it in red on a switch ? If that is it do I turn the key on
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

I think that would be it. Push that or turn it on and then try to start it.
