Battery dead

Soooo moved to KC, house fell through (builder ran out of $) living in Vegas 25.3
This morning we woke up to find chassis battery dead. Emergency start does nothing and generator wonít start. Anyone experience this before?
I have no clue.

Thanks for any help

I had this happen, but it was not overnight. Never determined conclusively what happened, best guess is I left the parking lights on or something that drained the chassis and the house batteries.

Jump start the engine, then start the generator.

so dead as in lights won't even faintly glow?

are you sure the use/store switch didn't get turned to store by mistake?

can you start the chassis?

when you engage the emergency start, do you hear a clunk as you press the button...probably coming from the chassis engine compartment?

do you have a multimeter or some way to measure voltage at the batteries? It could be dead batteries....or it could be something keeping the juice from getting out of the batteries (fuse or relay)

I do have a multimeter but I believe it is with all of our stuff that got shipped which we canít get to just yet. No sound from emergency start. Use/Store could have been bumped, we have two large dogs. I pressed Use this morning but no telling if Store had been pressed.
I will try jump starting when I get home from work.
Thank you both

I carry a jump start pack with me for emergency times. They have some really nice little units with lithium batteries now. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...=27VH30QS1MCJF
