diesel gen set quits

I have a Thor Aria 3901 diesel. with 1/2 tank of fuel the gen set quit running while i was using my leveling systen to put the jacks down. the jacks went down ok but the gen set quit running and now it will not start. In fact it does not even click when i push the button. House batteries seem fine. and engine will start ok but the gen set has no starting power to it? any ideas? thanks

Check the power cable connections to the starter and ground wire.

Don't have your coach, but if you have an AGS autostart feature (like on a Magnum RC50), try starting with the controller as opposed to the dash switch and/or start switch on the generator itself. See if it's just the one start switch that isn't working (would then mean the switch was bad), or multiple switches aren't working (which would point more to the generator/cabling/batteryvoltage).
