Yes, when house batteries are dead, The 100 amp generator start breaker is tripped, batteries have been replaced and miswired, as well as other electrical issues.

New batteries, wireing correct, fuse near battery box set. Power leaving bat box going to rear . Just none getting there. There is a solenoid near gen. How would I check it.
As you can tell, mechanic I am not.

You don't show your coach but usually the generator circuit breaker is near the house batteries. In my coach it is one of three in the battery compartment. If you have a jack (leveling) system, it is powered by the same CB. So anytime you have good house batteries and the battery compartment circuit breaker is not tripped you will have power to the generator's starter solenoid. Chances are pretty good that the circuit breaker is tripped or there is a loose or not connected battery cable.

Electrician, you are? Can you use a voltmeter/multimeter and measure the voltage on each of the main solenoid terminals to ground? Should be 12 to 13 VDC on one,
