On some coaches the wire is to small a gage to carry enough current. In other cases poor connections or battery is low. I always start the engine when I start mine to give it an extra jolt.

Could the start side of the switch be burned out? Easy to check by removing the switch and touching the start wires together. If it turns over then its probably a bad switch. If it doesn't start then it has to be an open circuit (broken wire) or blown fuse maybe.
