Generac has power/ no power to control panel 07 Eclipse stellar

I bought a 2007 Eclipse stellar T25DB a few weeks ago for my son an I to live in so we aren't homeless. Ive never messed w a generator before but seeing how I spent all we had for this I can't afford to have someone else do it so failure in not figuring this out ISNT an option.

I bought it used obviously an I've got ZERO information on it an ZERO information or manuals or maintenance/repair stuff.. completely blind especially with generator.

I've read all reasons which prevents it from starting an I've already checked em off the list as they are all good

1. I've got fully charged batteries
2. The generac has power coming from battery
3. There's NO battery power to to the control panel an no power to the remote inside start/stop switch

Basically the battery power stops right at generator an nothing else. I can hold down the start switches forever an I won't ever get any response at all... absolutely NOTHING happens at all. Can't get it to do anything what so ever. Fuses are good an oil an is where is suppose to be

Use jumper cables to create a ground from chassis to generator engine.

Look for a fuse on the control panel.

Have you checked the two fuses on the generator control panel?
To test the starter you can jump across the two large terminals on the starter relay. Use and 12 or 14 gauge wire, doesn't really matter because you will only do it momentarily.
Apparently you didn't test the generator before you bought the trailer?

Please post model number of Generac generator for better advice. Generac makes many different generators. Troubleshooting one may not be the same as for troubleshooting another.

It is good policy to always post make and model of an appliance you wish to get advice for. Travel trailer make and model often does not lead to one appliance configuration.

Generac has downloadable manuals on there website. You can view or printout a copy if you like. Here is a link.

https://www.generac.com/service-supp...odelNo=7060525

There is a wiring diagram on page 38 that may be helpful.

Twinboat meant for you to use just one jumper cable to temporarily provide an improved ground path. Use the one with black clamps for grounding. less future confusion.
However, you have a ground sufficient to pass enough current to blow a 7.5 amp fuse. I am totally unfamiliar with your genny but I suspect that if that fuse is mounted onto a pc board, that board is bad. If you can identify any harness plugs downstream of that board, unplug them and then try popping another fuse. If the fuse still pops, you've isolated the short within the board. If it is at all similar to Onan gennys then you could have a blown voltage regulator. It is said that fouled slip rings cause Onan voltage regulators to fail out.
Good luck!
