Vintage Pace Arrow No Start

I am the proud owner of a '92 Fleetwood Pace Arrow with the Ford 460cu in monster. It has 113,000 miles and has never failed to start since I've owned it these last 7 years. Until now.

The key will energize the instruments on the dash, but not the starter motor. We have tried to find the starter solenoid with no luck, and we further understand that there is a starter relay located somewhere in the bowels of the engine room, but cannot locate either.

I have a new (rebuilt) starter, a new solenoid, and can probably find a relay locally, if needed.

Can anyone help with where I should start the search for these? Looks like a spaghetti factory blew up under there, and things are hard to trace inside the flexible conduit. Also, what else should we suspect? Neutral switch? Something else?

Battery is relatively new and shows 100% charge (12.7V).

HELP! I wanna go camping!

I would slide under coach.. use all safety precautions.. use cellphone with flash on and record the large wire that runs from starter to solenoid.. so trace it backwards to the battery.. the solenoid has to be.. inline somewhere between starter and battery.. many mentioned here look on side of walls.. black and hard to find..
Good luck and keep us posted
