Engine will not start

I have Vegas 24.1 and attempted to jump start. Motor turned over few times and followed by complete loss of power. Was able to start generator but motor still will not turn over. Radio has no power but rest of Rv has power.

Help please

Did you try your emergency start switch?

Sometimes the chassis battery is so dead you have to disconnect it in order to jump start it.

Are you plugged in? Use/store in store? (If you're plugged in but the use/store switch is in store the cabin will work but you won't be charging the house battery and the emergency start switch likely won't work because the converter doesn't provide enough current to start the V-10.)

Of course, however, since you can start your generator I would suspect your use/store switch is in use because I don't think you could start the genny with the converter.

If the generator runs and/or you can plug in measure the voltage at the chassis battery + terminal--is it 14V ? (e.g. converter is charging?)

The same thing happened to me on my last coach. I tried the emergency start switch, I tried to jump it from my truck, I tried to use a boost box, nothing worked. The chassis battery was so dead nothing would happen. I had two weeks left on the 36 month replacement warranty on the battery so I decided what the heck. As soon as I put in the new battery, everything was rosie.
