Just traveled from NY to CA at 1 point I shut the RV off returned to start RV and it would not start.
Instrument lights came on but no starter engagement.
checked fuses under hood on right side of engine compartment, pulled/checked fuses- all ok, plugged them back in, tried starting and vehicle started.
Traveled 600 miles, turned off vehicle, again starter will not engage.
Any suggestions or wire diagrams available- HELP!!!!

Did you try moving the shifter to see if the Park/Neutral sense switch was the problem?

Take a volt meter or even a test light and check the two leads at the starter. Is the large wire hot (constantly). Is the smaller wire sending the signal to the starters solenoid? I found it always best to start at one end of the system and work your way through it.

Thanks, did exactly that and discovered bad connection at starter.
Just getting too old and fat to crawl under the ACE!
