Default House batteries will not 'click on'

the house batteries will not power up the coach. Probably a relay somewhere.

I left the unit plugged up over winter and the batteries check good (at the batteries) and they started the generator, but there is no voltage in the coach when the genny is off and the unit is not plugged in to a land line.

Somebody please tell me there is a quick and cheap fix!!!!!

May be a dumb question but do have a toggle switch that says generator on top and shoreline on the bottom with the center being off. If so switch it to shoreline. I'm not being cute but I have missed some very simple items with my coach when I first got it.

Ok, let's break it into managable pieces. Do you have 12v power for the 12v lights? Because I am going to look in different places if I just don't have 110 coming out of the inverter.

Mine has a manual disconnect switch just at the batteries. Do you have one? Even if you are sure it is on, you might cycle it a few times.

How do you disconnect the house batteries? A manual switch, a switch powered solenoid? That's where I would start.
