Check for 12VDC on both sides of the chassis isolation relay, if ok there move to the isolated studs mounted to the frame behind the right front wheel.

Cycle the chassis battery disconnect switch a couple of times and listen for the relay.

Do BOTH your "chassis battery" AND your "house batteries" show "full charge"?
On many rigs when the "boost switch" is pressed chassis battery voltage is used to trigger/activate the "boost solenoid".
On those rigs, if/when the chassis battery voltage is to low, (depleted far enough), and/or if the chassis battery is bad, the "boost" will NOT work.

Problem found,relay or rocker switch is bad.
Service man ran power to back side of switch to "hot" wire for relay and it cycled to on position.
I NOW HAVE POWER AND CAN CONTINUE TRIP!!!!
Thanks for the replies
