1985 Winnebago Chifton wont start, no crank Saira 4-5-17  
Help! My 1985 RV wont start. Batteries are good and i think all the fuses are good. I am thinking it's the ignition switch because just a couple of weeks ago I started it with no problem.

See my answer under your question in engines.

Testing the switch is part of testing the starter solenoid once you find it.

Now I know you have a Cheiftan it is likely you have a 460 Ford or 454 Chev engine. The Chevrolet has the solenoid mounted on the starter on the passenger side of the engine.

The fore usually had a remote mounted solenoid near the starting battery under the hood. Just follow the cable from the positive battery post.

Corrosion on connections is common so test carefully and clean every battery, ground and Solenoid connection before replacing parts.

Good Luck
