Kountry Star won't start on main battery

I am looking at a 2004 Kountry Star 3905 with a Cat 330. The problem is when you turn the key on everything lites up on the dash but when you go to start it everything is dead . The only way to start it is with the auxiliary start . After that it will start unless left for a while. I don't want to purchase this unit if this is major wiring problems. The unit has only 24000 Kilometors on it.

Batteries go bad. Not a reason to pass on a good coach. Have someone remove the battery, have it charged and load test it. Is the seller a dealer or individual? Age of start batteries?

Agree, sounds like bad battery.

A couple weeks ago my 08 wouldn't start for a mysterious reason after being in storage unplugged for 2 months. It had always had no problem in the past starting after being in storage. Long story short, the seat heaters were left on during storage and even though I disconnect the 12 v using the store switch, the seat heaters are wired to starter batteries. That alone drained the bats down and after figuring it out, things are back to normal. Something else to check.
