Generator not starting

2016 Vegas 24.1. The genny has always started up fine. My wife took the rig to a dog show and discovered the genny was low on oil. They filled it with oil. Now when she came home see says the genny won't start. I looked into it and the meter isn't even lit, and we have nothing. No meter, it must be a fuse. I have checked everywhere and can find no circuits or fuses blown. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have 12 volt power?

One time my generator tripped the breaker. On mine the breaker for the gennie is in the battery compartment. It is a flag type breaker screwed to the compartment side above the 6v batteries.

Well, I don't know. The batteries lite up on the display, and I started up the rig. I guess I don't know how to test for 12v in the rig. I know how to test for 12v on the cab battery.

I never looked in there. Thanks, that's my next check.

That was it. The yellow circuit breaker buried down on the left side of the battery box had popped. All is well now thanks to wonderful help from this forum.

P.S. no where in the manuals does it show where that breaker is, AT ALL.
