Question about 2001 Ford Super Duty F 450
To whom it may concern,
I was wondering what I need to look for on my motor home. This is only if you deal with motor home issues. Please let me know either way on this email if you do know anything about motor homes or just strictly CARS/TRUCKS......
There is no power going to the front of the motor home. Nothing will come on in the dashboard and we cannot start it up. It does have 2 new batteries as well as a new starter. We checked all the fuses and they were all good too. the 12 volt interior works in the motor home. I was hoping you would be able to tell me or give some suggestions of what I should look for in order to get my motor home up and running again. Any type of suggestion would be so very greatful and helpful. Thanking you in advance,
Don't know if you're still looking for a solution to this or not. The '88 Pace Arrow has THREE batteries. (I have one parked out front). Two of the batteries are connected in parallel and these are the "auxiliary" batteries. The third battery is the motor/start/engine battery. Unless someone has rigged something up, I'd bet your engine battery is missing entirely. The engine battery is responsible for vehicle starting and _anything_ that comes in a normal vehicle... ie everything in the dash. The auxiliary batteries run everything in the back... lights, water pump, etc.
Try pressing the auxiliary start button near the key when you turn on the key and see if anything happens. This is effectively a "self jump start". If it does, I'm sure your engine battery is either bad, not connected properly or missing. If it doesn't, it's probably still a battery issue, but there's probably something else wrong too.

Sounds like an igniton sw.The coach batterys are seperate from the vehicle battery although there is an emergency start switch
that allows you to start the motor home off the coach batterys if your vehicle battery is low.You can short across the igition sw contacts easier than the starter.The ignition sw is easily removed by removing the large retaining nut on th front of the switch.You have to remove the fake wood grain plastic to get access to the nut.A pair of needle nose pliers works real well to short across the contacts.The ignition sw should be labeled.

Why dont you disconnect your other batteryfrom interior,leave the other one connected,then check the battery for 12 v,positive to ground 12v,positive to starter body 12v and bypass your starter to crank it over or either way

I mentioned at the beginning of your inquiry to check all connections to and from battery, apparently this check list was successful for you.
Thank you for your inquiry.
