if it started before you replaced the batteries and won't start after then you need to recheck every wire that you disconnected or may have been close by and you could have disturbed by accident. SOMETHING happened during the process of changing the batteries.
If it didn't start before and you thought it was because of bad batteries then you haven't solved the non starting issue by replacing the batteries and more testing needs to be done.

Find the cable you left off,tucked behind something or it has fallen behind something.
I have done it before,no need to be embarrassed!

I agree with Randy. Why do you think we lean toward a cable being left off ? Most of us have already done that and driven ourselves crazy trying to figure out what could possibly be wrong.

Has it been determined if the coach was starting before the batteries were replaced? Seems the owner has determined the batteries are the route of the problem and seems others are suspecting otherwise?

I think we’ve all had similar at one time or another . I remember once it was a slightly bad connection of one of the leads to the starter. About a 1/8 turn on the stud was what it took. Probably the ground but I don’t recall

Be nice to know if he had a no start issue before switching out the batteries.

I was involved with another coach with a hard start problem today,i will post on a new thread.

Well finally found the problem When installing the new batteries I pushed a wire on the starter solenoid and it touched the frame. And I assume grounded the starter. After pulling the wire forward viola cranks right up.
Thanks to all that contributed. Still learning and this was a small mistake that took all weekend to figure out. But thankful. I a, now prepared for next weekend trip

Thanks again to all
