AUX Start Switch

Appears my Aux start switch on the dash is not working and the Propane generator will not start, acts like the battery is dead. All 4 batteries test normal.

Where are the fuses or internal connections for this switch? Keep in mind this is a diesel so I have a large firewall compartment on the front end. The main transfer switch for 12v and shore power is in the bedroom. Everything else works normal.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

It may be different in your diesel, but on a gasser, I would test the solenoid on the back of the battery tray and isolator in the engine bay.
