When you say 'dead won't start' are you referring to the engine? You can't start it to drive away?

I'm assuming the jacks (if you have then) are up and the slide(s) are in. Don't think it will start if either of these are not the case.

If the chassis battery is charged I'd look around under the hood for the 100a breaker.

Look around the chassis battery for a small box with a yellow "flag" popped out--if you find it push the flag back in and try to start the engine.

Flag under hood is in flag at coach batteries is in. Everything in coach works. Nothing in cab works no head lights nothing. Acts like dead battery but not dead fully charged. Is there a main fuse or breaker under hood. Thanks

Jamie's suggestion on looking near the battery for a tripped breaker would be my next guess.

Any luck with that?

Not familiar with the Axis but I think it is on a E-450 chassis. There is a large rectangular fuse box / power distribution box near the engine.

Check the chassis battery for tight connections. Follow battery ground cable to it termination point. It should be clean, no corrosion, and tight.

I vote for bad battery cable connections. Remove, clean and replace.

Check the bigger, square relays in the fuse box(es). If there are like types, switch them round. Lots of problems stem from them vibrating loose.

Fuse number 12 and 15 in the Power Distribution box says it is a 40a fuse and the description is "Modified vehicle and stripped chassis battery."

That almost sounds like to provides power to the chassis.

Located in front of fuse box on drivers side. Is there a fuse or relay that controls this. Iím going to try to borrow volt meter so I can check power to it. Wish me luck. Hooked up to house power now so at least we have ac

If you took a picture and posted it, that might help.
