Broken Down Need Help !

I currently own a 2005 Fleetwood 32 Tera on a Workhorse chassis, I live in New York. The RV is broke down in PA 170 miles from home. You turn the key on I have no Idiot lights, no start on auxuity or coach batteries. Both batteries have good voltage need help thinking maybe ignition switch does anybody have any ideas.

Thank you,
Joe please phone me at 845-399-7402

You say good voltage? How much? A 12v battery at 12v's is nearly dead. On my old fleetwood Bounder there was a kill switch above the entry door.

Do you have a test light or volt meter?

Start by confirming you have 12v into the ignition switch.

The good news it that it is a basic problem.
And even a corroded connection would "probably" let the dash lights come on.
If your parking light lights dont work, it is definetely a 12v source problem.

Check the chassis disconnect switch (if you have one).
The more chassis stuff that does not work means the problem is closer to the main 12v supply from the chassis battery

joe1955 - If your chassis is a P32, this is a common problem. Yes, it is the ignition switch. There is a Mod to fix this problem. This is a web site that expains how to do it. It is really easy. If you only replace the switch, you will have the problem again in a few years. They say it is the A/C and Heater Blower that draws to much amps. It is a cheap and easy fix. All parts can be bought at Autozone or just about any other parts store. Hope this helps. Oemy's Web Site - It is the switch located at the bottom of the steering shaft, not the key ignition. Look under DIY Project.

Many coaches have an online fuse near the battery. I have had this happen to me.

Check fuse #49 (ignition A) in the fuse panel under the wind shield outside above the hood access when you open it.
