Troubleshooting Starter Switch Problem

I have a 2000 Land Yacht. Pulled it into my yard and shut it off, decided to move it a bit and when trying to re start, nothing. No try to start, buzz, nothing. Power seats and steps which both work off of engine battery work and battery shows charged. AC/Heater, radio, gauges, jack on/off switch (which requires engine switch to be on) all are dead. I'm thinking fuse. Any other ideas? Where might I find the fuse for the switch?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
WMD

When we had the " turn the key an nothing" it turned out to be some critter chewed through the neutral/park indicater wire from the transmission.

Here's a picture of the scariest part.

Thanks for the info. I've considered the possibility. I suppose that requires a professional to ferret out. Hopefully I can find a bad fuse before I have to resort to that.
Thanks again, WMD

The most common cause of no start like this is battery cable issues.


Superat stultitia.

What was the problem? I had this a couple of times on our 2005 LY33 and found that the starter relay contacts were dirty.

Senility. When I cleaned the posts and terminals I put the positive side back on without cleaning it.

Aww Man!!
