Batteries!

Here is my question. Our rv won't start. So I opened the battery access panel by the stairs and removed and charged both batteries. Did not work! So I popped the hood looking for the "starter battery" not there. I haven't pulled the engine cover yet, is that where it might be hiding?

Thank you

Starting batteries can be hidden in many places, Mine is under the coach in back of the right front tire,, Some are in the house battery compartment, some are... Elsewhere. As the other respondent said, Make and Model please And chassis make as well if you know it.
IE: 2005 Damon Intruder 377W (Workhorse chassis) (my rig).

Different thread, And what chassis is it on. That is the more important question.
