generator wont crank!!@

my rig was sitting for 30 days without using it.
i dont know why but my engine battery died.(they are 2 yrs old). so i put everything on charge. 2 days later i start the rig. it start at the first crank. i tried the generator... nothing. so i check every fuse that i found (not si much). everything fine. i checked the power to the generator with a voltmeter...12.4 volt..... i dont know what to check now. is there a other fuse somewhere...a relay....

The genset runs from the coach batteries. Do you hear a click from the genset when you try starting it? 12.4 volts is a median voltage for batteries. Check your coach batteries. Click image for larger version
