No 12 Volt DC Power and Generator won't start

I have a 2006 Tropical LX T350. I have no 12 Volt DC Power inside and the generator will not start. This happened when I replaced the 4 house batteries. Everything is wired correctly. Is there a master disconnect switch somewhere? I don't think a problem exists and must be simple.

Often you'll have a battery disconnect switch at the entrance. Make sure its ON. Find the disconnect solenoid and check for 12v at both large terminals. If the switch is bad, you can connect both large wires to one terminal until you install a new solenoid. Also check for a large amperage fuse or circuit breaker in the (+) cable from the batteries to the battery disconnect solenoid.

It was the battery disconnect switch! Duh. I was looking all over the coach for the switch and found it to the left of the entry door. I am still getting acquainted with all the switches and what they do.
