Correct, BUT, internal in the switch you have to have had 2 circuit failures, 1 power ( constant circuit ) to the gauges, 2nd momentary output to the starter .
Switches low on the column and operated by linkage were often adjustable, to compensate for wear in the linkage.
So many things to go wrong.

Sure looks like it , or it's the dimmer switch and the ignition switch is under it, and some how the cover should come off to expose the mounting screws. I'll see if I can come up with a picture from a parts store.
Are any of the wires hot with the ignition on ?
Any luck checking fuses?

Can't get the picture to transfer from NAPA web site , but it looks like it will be similar to KS6633 the part # from my old Reliant that used a similar steering column and switch set up.
Man , they really didn't want anyone getting up in there to work on things.

But It's not green.

Both Saginaw steering columns; my old Reliant and your coach; slight differences in mounts. Couldn't remember all your coaches info, just guessed Saginaw column and went with a car I remembered, that used that stuff.

How did the fuse testing turn out?
Did you have a dead circuit , that should have been powered up with the ignition on? Confirming a bad switch.

Looks like a bad switch. I will let you know what happens after I figure out how to replace it. Is it common for a switch to operate perfectly fine then not work at all on successive cranks?

Internal sliding contact bars , can have burnt sections , and when the bad pieces line up , no current flows. Next time the contacts slide across one and other , after a slight scraping from the last movement , away you go.
