No 12v power

I have a 95 Seabeeze 29 Ft, which has been in storage for years. The start battery is always removed and reinstalled when ever I want to have a short run to keep running parts lubricated. RV always starts right up, no problem.

Getting ready to sell and wouldn't you know it; put battery in, go to start, nothing !! Battery volt meter in dash is showing 12-12.2 vols, no horn, no lights, can't hear starter solenoid, NOTHING !

Convertor has been recently stolen, had bad roof leak, especially bad over driver side window.

Any ideas where to start?

Can I run a jumper off starter wire to distributor and jumper starter solenoid to start engine? My 1st major task is to start engine so I can move MH to shop. Engine is a chev 454.

Suspect whoever took the converter messed up the wiring. Hard to speculate what the problem might be. Need someone to get eyes on to figure out what is wrong. You may have to have it towed to a shop.

Did you try jumping the battery ? 12 - 12.2 volts is a pretty low battery. Give the cables a twist, could be corrosion blocking current flow.

Check the ground cable may have been loosened at chassis or damaged when converter stolen.
