My Alpine coach won't start

Hello everyone! I just replaced the stock VHS and DVD player in my coach my question is there any way I could have blown a fuse or pulled a wire loose that would effect the ability to start the motor on my coach???? All the work was done above the drivers side next to the TV. I just purchased new batteries less than three months ago, I'm parked at the TT Thunderbird Monroe, WA plugged into power, my batteries are fully charged, when I turn the key on none of the check this or wait to start lights come on this screen is totally black. The backup camera comes on and I can use the hydraulic levelers so it seems like there is power to the ignition switch but that's it no idiot lights no STARTING of the motor. The starter will not engage, nothing happens. Is there a fuse or switch I could have bumped I have never had any issue of this coach not starting. This so odd PLEASE HELP. Thanks.

Did you check the fuse box in the battery compartment?

Ed, the leveler so run off the house batteries, not the chassis batteries. The symptoms you describe indicate you have no (or too low) voltage on the chassis side, while you are plugged in the chassis side does not charge. Did you turn off the chassis battery cutoff switch in the battery compartment? What is the voltage when read at the chassis battery, saying your batteries are fully charged does not answer the question, we need the actual voltage to the tenth of a volt on the starting (chassis) batteries.

Other than that I would look at the ignition switch.

Hi Dave happy Easter. I checked the voltage at the chassis batteries 12.53 volts should be just fine. I also checked the fuses in the battery compartment no problem there. when I turn the key to the running lights come on bright and the turn signal lights work there is no apparent lose wire or funny feel to the ignition switch. I disconnected both battery switches and reset the vansco units. I have removed the panel by the front door to reveal the vansco unit inside the coach I can see red lights go on and off with the resetting of the unit I can't see any red lights on the vansco unit in the battery compartment. Any ideas??

You should have lights on both Vansco units. I would look for a power problem with the rear one.
