Start at your house batteries. Loosen the connection s move them and retighten. This is a quick starting point. Did you have power then it was gone? or is this an after storage problem maybe you left the discconects on?

If you do not have a voltmeter then get something for $20 or less and check the Internet for how to use it.

Check your house battery voltage. Compare it to your engine battery. Post both readings. That will get you some data points and make sure you know how to get them. What you get will determine where to go next. There are several folks here who can take you to the next steps.

As others have said, check battery voltage.

Then look for a battery disconnect switch. It may be off.

Doug ("smsudad")-

There should be a battery disconnect panel near the interior step, with a "12V" on/off switch on the right-hand side of the panel. If so, is that switch set to "on?"

Is the green light on the propane detector on?
