SO I am not seeing a switch like you have for the house batteries, I do see you have two solenoids and almost wonder if the other solenoid is an ignition solenoid, it would get a signal from the ignition switch. SO locate both solenoids, if you hit the house disconnect you should hear that solenoid click each time, go to the solenoid that is next to it and you will see two LARGE posts on it, Check for voltage on each LARGE post, if you have power on one side and not the other get a small insulated wire and jump the posts and see if your dash power comes to life, if so then you could have a bad solenoid, if nothing happens and you have no voltage on BOTH posts trace the cable back to the battery and make sure you do not have a tripped breaker on that cable.....

Let me know if you have more questions or concerns follow ups are included.

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page..
