low voltage would make a lot of sense because I am parked in the shade and the energy is coming all from solar. So I am hopeful now! I think my next step will be to drive to a spot with full sun and see if that fixes my problem!

You don't have the inverter input hooked DIRECTLY to solar panels - do you ? That WILL NOT WORK.

The inverter needs to be connected to batteries, and the solar panel can CHARGE the batteries......but solar doesn't provide enough constant current to actually run an inverter
with any sort of load on it.

If your motorhome does start let it idle for ten minutes and then turn the inverter on again. If the inverter works then your coach battery or batteries were dead.
