I expect it is a fuse at the main power supply but if not it is most likely a poor ground directly off the battery. Had this happen in Mesa Verdi and just lucky the mechanic bumped the wire and the lights flashed.

Headlights work and good voltage across chassis battery terminals. Have not gotten a chance to do any troubleshooting yet. I have a workhorse chassis. Is the starter solenoid mounted right next to the starter under the chassis? What is the best way to test starter and solenoid, if good voltage is present...short the terminals?

Will a poor ground connection allow some things to work and not others? There is extreme corrosion on the chassis ground in battery compartment, but nothing seems loose.

I had a similar problem with my WH chassis. In the back where the 50 amp cords comes in there is a panel of fuses that is hidden by a metal panel. Once I found these fuses there was a 40 amp fuse that was blown. This fuse has blown a couple of times since, I keep a couple of fuses in the coach. It seems you have checked all the battery connections so I'll bet you have a fuse panel you have not found yet.

No. Not if he has no instrumentation and other functions are dead.

Dont know if you found a solution yet, but I just had the same problem on my Diplomat. My Cummins tech determine it to be a bad ignition solenoid relay. Replaced it and all was good.

Thanks for all of the posts. Forgot to post the solution. It was the ignition switch and a 5 pin connector plugged into the switch that had begun to melt. Cost me 60 for both parts.
