Won't Crank

Put a new battery and some oil in, turned the key and heard nothing.

Where to start?

If it is an automatic try moving the shifter to neutral and see if that works. Sometimes the safety switch goes out of adjustment and will not let the starter solenoid activate. Hope this helps.

You may have a battery disconnect somewhere in the coach (most class A's do; ours is above the door). Check it first to be sure switch is in the correct position.
