Yes, the lack of power to the shifter panel will prevent it from starting. The shifter can't report that it is in neutral, so the engine refuses to crank (park/neutral interlock is working as designed).

Odds are you have a transmission control relay that is not working, or a wire to/from it has come loose. The relays are usually near the transmission controller, somewhere in the rear of the coach. I've had a loose wire on one of mine and it kept us hunting for 3 days before we stumbled onto the intermittent connection.

I would look for a loose connection or a fuse, but you've probably got that covered. Best of luck and I hope you get it started!
