I have a Coachmen Mirada on a Chevy P30 Workhorse Chassis. Problem is when I turn the Ignition switch I get no lights on dash, all is dead. Lights, Horn, flashers work and there is a live feed on the Brown and black wires on the wiring going up the steering colum.
Any ideas please.
Clive

Well, #2 on the hit parade is bad ground connections, Workhorse did not do the ground on that, it's up to the body builder to hook up that wire, and sometimes it gets hooked up wrong.

Third is BOB, yes, BOB the Burned Out Bulb(s)

In this case (s)

And finally #1: there is a fuse

It is a pain to get to at the bottom of the steering column but check the ignition switch. With the switch in the run position with the engine off wiggle the white connector and see if the dash lights and buzzers come on. If you can get the connector off as you look at the end of the connector there should be 3 wires down the right side and a single wire in the upper left. The middle of the 3 wires is the battery. Top wire is the ignition on and the bottom wire is the starter. The upper left is the accessory wire. If you put a jumper between the middle and top wire the warning lights on the dash should come on. Jumper the middle and bottom and the starter will turn. The ignition switch on my Coachmen fails so often I carry a jumper so I can get it home without a tow.
