2016 Bounder 35k won't start

My Bounder refuses to start. Figured it was a toasted chassis battery so replaced it today to no avail. No click from the starter. Aux start doesn't work either Not sure how to troubleshoot the starter or the solenoid at this point I checked the voltage on the new battery across the terminals and got 12.4 volts

There is a start solenoid, sitting somewhere above the engine on the right ( passenger ) side, under the dig house..

It sends the signal from the key to the solenoid on the starter motor. That should be clicking, turning the key to start.

If its not, then you need to back track to the neutral safety switch on the transmission.

There may also be lockouts for the jacks and slides.

Thanks for the quick reply. There is no clicking from the solenoid so I guess I have to go from there

2016 Bounder 35k won't start

Well I decided since it's under Ford Chassis warranty to go though Ford to have the repairs done. What a pita is has been trying to find a Ford Service Center that can work on Motorhomes. I tried using the commercial truck link that Ford has. It gave me 3 dealers in the area. After I called them they told me none of them can service A Motorhome The best option I found is calling Ford Roadside Assistance There is an option on the Voice Mail for Motorhome Customer Service. They did the foot work to find a dealer that does Motorhomes and warranty work. I live in a very populated region in New Jersey. My Motorhome has to be towed into Langhorne Pa to McCafferty Ford. Ridiculous

In case anyone is interested in how the saga ended. Turns out the power leads to the starter were not bolted down. They were literally just sitting on the posts without any nuts to hold them down. I suppose they were once there but slowly unloosened and fell off leading to my starting problem. Not sure what day of the week my Chassis came off the line. Maybe after happy hour
