Can't Start 2017 36G Forza

Happened once before. Seemed to reset. Did everything. Shades up, jacks up. Transmission in Neutral. Shifted out and back in to check. Parking brake on, red light on dash shows that. Turned battery disconnects on and off several times. Checked DEF, Checked all fluids. Checked slides. Dash lights come on. Turn key on, wait. turn to ignition nothing. STarted generator and held the boost for about 5 min. Nothing. Any suggestions?

does the voltmeter dip at all when you turn the key?

if not something wrong between key and starter solenoid.
if volts dip,could well be a stuck/bad starter solenoid. might be worth a smack with rubber mallet

Have DW attempt to start I while you go to engine compartment and listen for clicking noise or any noise to show signs of possible trying to start.

Does your wait to start light come on (looks like a yellow coil of wire)?

I think the most likely problems are:
1. low voltage from starting batteries (5 minutes of generator run time will do nothing). Check them with a voltmeter.
2. Loose wire on the ignition switch
3. Starter solenoid stuck (a few taps with the hammer may help)
