Most have a "Battery Boost" button the dash someplace.
Both of my Class A DP's had one.

When using the Battery Boost switch, it is often necessary to hold switch for a few minutes to allow house batteries to boost engine start batteries before cranking engine.

I would charge the chassis batteries for an hour or two then use the boost. If no boost, use jumper cables. You'll be doing the batteries a big favor if you charge them for 6 to 8 hours then start the engine.
