Starter won't operate (was boosting)
« on: July 12, 2017, 11:17:15 AM »
Tried to start my 2004 Winnie Adventurer 37B after a layup but no go. Put charger on but no go. Boosted with my truck but no go. Not even turning over. Any suggestions?

How old are the batteries? Are your chassis batteries charged while in storage? Did your batteries get below freezing while in storage?

Hi John, new batteries recently and when not in use they are on a charger. I'm thinking a bad starter??

Can you hear the starter solenoid click? Try to check the voltage on the starter side of the solenoid contactor as a helper turns the ignition key to start.

What chassis is it? If a ford it might be the starter relay or the starter solenoid.
