No battery power to engine start system

Winnebago DP has 3 charged chassis batteries,less than 2 years old, that won't even turn on the idiot lights. The only light that works is the check antenna. All batteries discharged over a 2 week period while coach was in a storage lot.

Hi AlvesTom,
Welcome to iRV2. You have bad batteries or there is a considerable drain on them. If you are looking for possible drain circuits, consider posting this in the Winnebago Owner's forum. From the main page scroll down to the Owners Corner. Inside the Owners Corner there will be a forum specific to Winnebago. They are in alphabetical order so Winnebago will be at the bottom of the list.

I make this suggestion because different manufacturers wire their coaches differently. This drives owners (and technicians) crazy. Being a Newmar coach owner, I could make some general suggestions, but they may be useless to a Winnebago owner. Also consider adding to the content the year, model, etc. of the coach.

Tom, did you get this figured out? I have the same problem but the batteries are fully charged. Chassis batteries are fully charged, just no power to the ignition. I can hear the momentary solenoid working but no power to the starter or even the ignition switch even with the momentary button pushed. No ignition switched accessories.
