1996 Allegro M31 Electrical Issue

I recently tried to start my 96 Allegro M31 and heard what sounded like something electrical shorting out and saw some smoke coming from underneath the rig. I looked under the motor home and there was no fire (luckily). By the time I jumped out and crawled under, however, I could not tell where it had come from. Now, I have no indication of any electrical. My battery still has juice, but I had no indications on my dashboard, and the generator does not want to turn over. On the quarters side, I can't swap electrical over, and even with an external source I get no electrical. Is there anything simple I can check out or am I to the point I have to get it towed and fixed somewhere?

Let me know if you need any more information. This is the first time I've had any issue with anything electrical on the rig.

Thank you!

Will the starter do anything or is it toasted it sounds like the culprit.

RE: 1996 Allegro M31 Electrical Issue

Hello!

When the key is turned there are no lights on the dashboard at all. The battery checks fine for voltage. Nothing happens when I turn the key, at all. Could it still be the starter in that case?

Thanks!

I would look for the big main fuses also and look over the wiring good you need to find the source of the smoke test too look close at the starter you might can jump the solenoid see if the starter will spin up
