1988 Fleetwood Tioga Arrow Lee Delaney 12-26-16  
I have had this rv for sale and even had a open house on 12/24. It was started and test driven several times. Last person brought it back and put a deposit on it. Later that afternoon I went to put it away and NO start! NO crank,no dash lights or headlights. Almost like the battery was removed.I checked all the connections and then used a jump box. Still nothing. A few hours later I turned on the lights and they worked,she started right up. I tried to move it but it stalled and no start or lights now for 2 days. I'm being told by friends and family that it has lost it's ground. I don't know how or where to look to fix this. The guy still wants it but it has to start. Any ideas??

So a bad ground could be:

Dirty battery terminals
Bad cable to or from battery to chassis or Engine to battery or engine to Chassis.

The easy way to diagnose this is take a booster cable the next time it wont start, connect it direct to the Neg battery post, not the battery connector, the battery post.

Try it to the chassis and the engine block.

That should show what cable to replace.
