No power to ignition switch

OK, let me start with poor me! Started on a great trip the Branson, MO, got 150 miles from home and stop fuel. Go to leave and RV wonít start, DEAD engine battery. Try the battery boost and starts right up. Shows itís charging. In of RV trip.

Here is what I (think) know:
1. No power at ignition switch or dash lights from engine battery.
2. Engine battery has 13.4 volt.
3. Fuses (50A & 40A) are good
4. The electric cooling fans run all the time with 50A in, stop when removed?
5. I have a ScanGauge that plugs into the OBDI, it now shows power all the time?
6. I know there is a problem on P32 Workhorse chassis and a DIY fix, I have a 02-Winnebago Adventurer W22 Workhorse chassis

What I donít know (for sure):
1. Do I have the same problem as with the P32?
2. How can I test to check?

Could be a relay. Check and make sure you have power to the relay. Had this happen once and ran a red wire from starter to a bic pen and used the cigarette liter to start worked to get me know. It was a relay and the battery boost was also bad. Anyway that is what happened to me.

Still don't know what was wrong

Well went back to the basics, pulled the new battery, had it checked, full charge and all cells good. Checked the cables, and put the battery back in. And everything was back to normal. Started right up. Which is great! But I still don’t what caused the problem.

I have a 2000 35 ft. Winnebago Brave on a Chevy Workhorse chassis. I keep my motorhome in my yard and start it about once a month to keep everything working properly. My problem after starting it about 2 weeks ago , I tried to start it yesterday But, there is NO power to the ignition, nothing works except the radio ,,, no power to mirrors , hydraulic pump for the jacks and slide out ,,,no gauges ,,, no dash lights. Battery is fully charged ! The Auxiliary start switch does not help !
WHAT SHOULD I CHECK FIRST ?

Thanks in advance, Mike
