electrical problems in 1995 WQ

This old coach has been great to me for a long time. But now I have a problem, that I can't find.
I don't have any 12V power in the coach until the ignition switch is turned on. with the ignition is in the off position generator will not run, frige, house AC, 12V lights, none of that stuff will work. As soon as I turn ignition on everything starts working normally. I really don't know what to look for. Any help for an old man and a new member here would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank You very much.

Welcome to iRV2.

Your problem sounds like the coach battery disconnect ( salesman ) switch has be touched OR the relay that the switch controls has failed , shutting down all power from the coach batteries .
I'll assume you've checked that the coach batteries are charged.
The battery disconnect switch should be near the entry door , possibly in a cupboard. The relay should be near the coach batteries.
The usual type of relay ( yellow circle in this photo ) has fuses attached that need to be checked, and is described in the pdf file attached. Page 7.
Also could you add more info on your unit , many members including myself , won't know exactly what a 1995WQ is . Manufacturer ? Class A ? Class C? Chassis ? Gas ? Diesel ?
