  1. I am in Bushnell, FL. I've known for years that I SHOULD have a meter. I guess this is my wake up call! Harbor Freight is in Leesburg; I guess I'm going there tomorrow. I do need a 2nd person here to help, so all this will have to wait for tomorrow. Judging by what you've said, it does sound like that switch is bad, or a fuse between that switch and the battery is gone. In no hurry right at this moment. Just discovered that SECO Energy did not turn on the electric at my new site. My spoiled self uses too much power for me to go over there without hookups, so I'll get a meter and get another pair of hands, and take my time getting this right. I may be getting back to you! Thanks so much. Ron.
  2. Funny! I don't have a meter. Will have to see if one of my neighbors has one.
  3. The switch is a lighted toggle switch by the door. I don't know if it actually disconnects the power from the chassis battery, as I have no power from that battery in the first place. The light on the switch does not go out (it used to, before I had this problem, and it used to stay flipped off), and it does not stay flipped off. The RV is gas. I have not had a chance to look for a fuse near the batteries - there is no "compartment". All 3 batteries are right behind the grille. The only fuses that I know of are in a small bay right behind the front wheel on the driver's side. There are 4 large fuses (besides the millions of small ones) there that are similar to a GFCI, in that I can push a button and a lever flips out that I can push back in. I don't know how to tell if any of the 4 are bad. Thanks for your considered response.
  4. Yes. I started it every week until 2 weeks ago when I got lazy and skipped a week... now this.

  6. And BTW, I am NOT a "new member", I just haven't posted in more than a year.
  7. 2005 Gulf Stream Independence, gas. I have new AGM batteries. According to my gauges, all 3 have a full charge. The RV won't start. There are none of the typical dead battery behaviors - no clicking, no lights flickering, nothing. All of my normal dash lights do not come on when I turn the key. Even the radio light is out. When I flip the chassis battery disconnect switch it springs back into the ON position and won't stay off. I have tried to jump the battery and I have tried starting with the booster switch that pulls from the house batteries. I have checked all the fuses I can find. I don't know what else to do. Any ideas?
