Have a 2003 Travel Supreme 40' 400 Cummins.

 

I needed to take the chassis batteries out and when I put them back in, I did it backwards. Bad mistake - but now the coach will not start. I did have the switch off @ the engine. Everything else chassis related seems to work fine, but won't start.

 

Where do I need to look?  It seems to be the starter, but not sure. Perhaps someone knows where a fuse might be that I blew or maybe it is more serious.

 

Need some direction.

I would start by calling Cummins. Cummins 800 343-7357

 

Does the Allison shift pad illuminate with the key on?  If not, call Allison as well. Allison help line 800 252 5283

It was five blown fuses which I found in the power bay. I was advised to look in the power bay for a fuse box. I did and thankfully it was a easy fix.

Thanks for the advise.

I have fuses/breakers located in four different basement bays.  I took a picture of each, and made a drawing of each, with every fuse labeled in the drawings.
