1981 Excella RV diesel Generator no power

Help! Just purchased an Excella RV has rear bath and ONAN 6.5kw duel fuel diesel and propane. It will not crank over - like no power is getting to the starter motor. I have an interior start switch and exterior one on the unit. When I push either nothing happens, is there another power switch I don't know about?? I've checked all the fuses I'm at a loss. If it would just crank or click or something at least I would know 12volts are getting to the starter. I've removed the interior and exterior switch covers and cleaned all terminals - still no crank. I've also cleaned The fuse terminals in the Univolt which is located under the curbside bed. I'm at a loss any advise welcomed and hugely Appreciated!!!! Pls help thanks to all!!!!😇
