I have the wiring diagram for a 2000 Monaco Windsor which I am told is same/similiar to your MH. It's too big for IRV2 so if you PM me with your email address, I will be happy tom send it to you. However, I don't believe it will show you the starter motor wiring. That should be the same as any auto so a local shop may be able to help you.

Try starting the gen set (uses house batt to start) let it run till voltage shows 13.2 on power panel readout then the chassis batt should be charging compliments your batt maintainer sol switch. Let it charge for a couple hours then try to start engine and use levelers. If engine starts go to high idle too.

Those switches are prone to not function. Did it give you any warning of problems or did it just quit outright?

I'm able to start the engine by pressing the switch at the bottom left of the center console. The levelers are now working. the main solenoid on the leveling system was not working i cleaned the connections at that solenoid.

Is the switch you are pressing labeled "Boost"?
Battery Boost Switch:
The Battery Boost switch engages a heavy-duty solenoid to electrically connect the house batteries to the engine battery in the event the engine will not crank or cranks slowly.

If so, it means your chassis engine start batteries are dead or low and you are boosting them with the house batteries. You need to test the chassis battery and if necessary replace or recharge it.

Northwest RV has a good collection of wiring diagrams:

I do not see a 1998 Imperial listed but there is a 1998 Executive that should be very close.
