2001 Fleetwood Storm won't start

It started fine a month ago. Turned on the aux and main switches above the door. They clicked. All the dash lights and radio come on. When the key is turned to start, nothing, not even a click. Checked the chassis battery with a voltage meter and it was good. Battery cable are tight and clean. Any help would be a appreciated on what to look for next.

Sounds like a bad starter or solenoid . If you can locate the starter, a slight tap over the solenoid with a hammer while someone turns the ignition might temporarily fix the problem. Just a guess

Go to the BCC box and check to see if the P13 connection on the side of the box has power.

I have placed a jumper on mine from the chassis battery terminal on the BCC to terminal P13. Starts every time now. This is only a temporary fix.

Could be a bad battery. Not enough amps.

Sorry for not responding. I just had major back surgery so i have to wait on my son. He took the battery up to have a load test done and it's good. No luck with the hammmer and the wood. Won't start in P or N. Checked the selanoid with an omns meter went between the positive and neg and no continuity. I am stuck here. I would like to avoid a mechanic bill because of being on disabilty. Any thoguhts? Thanks.

Just a thought. Have you checked the Safety Neutral Switch?
Is it possible to move the gear shifter through all the gears while holding the key in the start position?
