Generator Start using Battery Boost

When trying to start the Onan 10KW generator from the remote start on the coach, I have to use the Battery Boost. I have had the batteries checked and they are good. Also, the remote start in the bedroom won't start the generator. They both worked until a few months ago. The start switch on the generator works fine. Any ideas?

Hope to see an answer to this. If my house batts are about 12.5 or lower I have to do the same thing.
10K gen also, the old 7.5 would start easily at 12. Ideas??

Ok..removd and scraped every terminal (8 batts) reset on inverter. Everything works now. Terminals appeared clean but had hard surfaces =resistance. Gen started at 12.3 and 40degree outside temp. I will climb under and do genset cables this week too.

My gas onan 7KW used to be a bit*h to start, and durn near ran the batts down doing it. After a little experimenting, I found that a 2 second shot of starting fluid did the trick. In addition, when I shut it down, I spray 2 seconds of gumout in as the gem is dying down. The gumout on a warm carb will dissolve some of the gunk on the surfaces. Just need to be CONSERVATIVE when spraying anything into the carb. I drilled a small hole in the plastic plenum for the spray wand, and I fitted a small self tapping screw into the hole when not used.
