I have not. I have been looking for a job so that I can afford to take it to a mechanic. The labor rates where I live at is 120$ an hour and they want to just look at it for 2 hours or more before they decide to fix the problem. Which is ridiculous but it is what it is. If they want to have it there for that long I might as well have a few other things fixed or replaced. Like my water pump that burned out because I forgot to turn it off when I first bought and put my batteries in. And I'm going to have them look at my shore power system as well because I ran my genset for a good while to test the 120v outlets and the ac systems and nothing turned on even with all of the breakers turned to the on position.

Contact the manufacturer. I am a mechanic so I do all my own repairs. I simply contacted Newmar for my DP and had the drawings the same day.

exactly what i intended to convey back on post #9. I spend hours tracing down a poor grounded engine ground strap only to find i needed to wire brush the engine and frame contact points.

Look for a braided grounding cable usually locatedl (looking under the dome down at the left side of engine rear) mounted to engine and frame with hex bolts and washers. Remove bolts and inspect cable ends if white corrosion is present mostlikely causing the high resistance start up and no crank on 12 volts. wish i had checked this first as it was and easy fix but hard to find.
