Sounds more like a chassis battery solenoid disconnect. That's where I would start.
Good luck

Switch key from on to off ( not start ) while listening for a relay or solenoid to cluck in the wiring/fuse compartment.

That relay may not be making internal contact or the breaker/fuse supplying it may be bad.

All those things use chassis 12v power, so start hunting for chassis fuse panel and the chassis battery disconnect IF it has one. Could also be a faulty ignition switch (not engaging 12v power when key goes to On.


In a 1999, I would expect the leveler and step to be wired direct to the chassis battery with their own fuses, but maybe they are after the disconnect solenoid.

There are two fuse panels to check. One is in the electrical bay on the driver side rear. The two cut out solenoides are also in this bay.
The second panel is under the refrigerator. One side of this panel is A/C, the other D/C. All circuits are identified.
A way to check the cut out solenoides is to cut on and off the two switches on the main control panel next to the refrigerator. The opening and closing of the solenoides can be clearly heard.
Good luck.
