Default 2006 crescendo class A no power to the chassis

I just purchased 2006 crescendo motor home on Air stream diesel cumming. I drove from Richmond Indiana to Nevada.
No problems. I parked for two days. Try to start it, had no power to the engine or dash monitors. Checked disconnects switch, ok. And the motor home plugged into 110. The generator starts OK. Not sure which battery bank is used for the generator. Chassis or coach. Any help here would be appreciated.

Your house batteries and chassis batteries are separate entities. The generator uses house batteries, and "110" shore power typically charges house batteries through the on-board converter (12VDC power supply / charger).

You are describing a bad connection and/or bad batteries for the chassis. This arrangement is not much different than any other vehicle starting / running system. Ensure you have good chassis batteries (load test them if you have ability). Could be as simple as bad chassis batteries. Ensure the connections are clean and tight and the wiring to things like the starter and main fuse block is in good shape. Yours is unique in that the starting and running stuff is in the rear of the coach. Dash systems run through fuses in the left front compartment. Based on what you've said to this point, I'd suspect an issue in the rear, near the engine or simply bad batteries. Have you tried a "jump" ?

probably not a bad battery if you drove that distance and it cranked well and restated easily every time on the trip. Sounds more like some chassis item got left on and drained the batteries. Or you have a very bad connection from the chassis batteries to the engine and fuse panel. Dash lights should come on even with weak battery or marginal connection, the starter takes BIG power so requires good postive and negative battery connections from batt to the solenoid to the starter motor. Can you blow your electrical horn or is it all air, how about head lamps on bright? You can do some simple things like that to see if battery has some charge and if nothing then bad bad connection or dead battery.
Did you charge the battery up to 12.8 volts after its off the charger for at least 15 min?

Sounds like dead/ defective battery, or just a bad/ loose/ corroded connection? Sounds like good time to do full battery cleaning/service/ testing, and then charge 24 hrs?

If your batteries are not "maintenance free" you need to check the water levels. If not that and they are more than a couple years old they may not be producing enough amps. It could also be your starter drawing too much power because it is breaking down. It also could just be a bad cable connection or ground getting corrosion. I have had all of these issues at one time or another.
