wont start, 1998 thor pinicale3050

It has been sitting for over 7 months in a campground. Getting ready to leave in 2 weeks went to start it. Won't start. Take a look at the batteries. My two auxiliary batteries or shot both leaking acid. Went ahead and replaced my main one at the same time. Now I don't get anything when I turn the ignition but a click.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting your fix. Maintaining older coaches can be exciting....especially when parts and information may be scarce. Glad you are back in business.

Just a suggestion.

When you install batteries, or even just check for clean connections, use some deoxidizer grease at those connections, like on the solenoid you just installed.

The deoxidizer grease is made for electrical connections, I use it always, saves head aches later.
