starter solenoid & relay

I have a 1996 Bounder F53 chassis, 460ci, 30'.
I'm having intermittent problems with starting, happens a few times but it seems the battery hasn't enough juice to turn it over & it needs a 2sec jump to start, then works fine? I think it's in the solenoid, I have to play with the key sometimes too. I want to replace the starter solenoid, where is it?
Then I reading something & they said to replace the starter relay 1st????
Wheres that located? I know there's a ignition relay in the battery control box, is that the same? Could sure use some help, thanks.

Here on IRV2 we have a Ford Chassis forum. Many members there are well versed in the F53 and 460 engine. Your post here, may not be seen by those who could help you. I suggest finding the Ford forum and re-enter your question.
