Help no power to starter

I put in 2 new coach batteries and now I have no power going to the starter. I turn on the ignition and the dash lights up and all seems fine but when I turn the ignition to start absolutely nothing happens. I have checked all the fuses I can find and they seem fine. The house side of the coach works everything fine off the inverter and off the generator but nothing from the ignition to the starter. Need Help please I put in 2 new chassis batteries and I get no neutral light on the Allison push button shift display. 3126 cat 330 hp with Allison 6 speed tranny

Let's start with the basics. Is the transmission in park? Maybe move it to drive and back to park.

let's start with the facts: did you install two new COACH batteries, or two new CHASSIS batteries?

Welcome to the forum.

Check with a flashlight around the batteries for any dropped cables. It is a good idea to always take pictures before making changes.

Hopefully you installed them with the correct polarity.

Post your yr and model number for more accurate information.

If the solenoid is bad you should hear a click when you hit the starter. Check your ground connections.
