Doesn't turn over. Nothing. Changed ignition module and voltage regulator. Charged the battery. No electrical anything. Non radio. No lights.

Have you tried bypassing the ignition switch to see if the engine will turn over? Your ignition switch may just have had the contacts go bad.

One of your relays could have also gone out. There are usually several 20 amp rated relays on the drivers side rocker panel that control just about everything in the engine compartment.

Papa Bear: From your last posting, I'd go straight to the battery cables. Either to all end connections or look for corrosion that has eaten its way back up under cable covering. From your comments I would suspect the ground cable from battery to engine.

Good luck in your search

Marty

Battery cables aren't exceedingly expensive, just for good preventative maintainence now might be the best time to completly replace both cables.

Thanks, to all of you for your input. The Winnie still isn't running. I wasn't able to find the ballast resistor yet. I did buy one. I have changed the complete ground cable from battery to engine. Haven't changed the complete hot cable, but I did change the terminal end. Autozone gave me the wrong cable, and I haven't been able to go get the correct one. I tried starting the gennie, too, and nothing.

I am wondering, It sounds almost like there is a disconnect switch in the circuit! Could this be the issue?? I know that a friend of mine has a disconnect on the coach battery's and another on the engine battery. Its a 73 Sportcoach with the GM chassis.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
