Ignition/Acc. Solenoid issue

2012 Berkshire 390 BH I thought I had a solenoid issue changed solenoid and still no fans, radio or front ac with ignition key on. I can jump across solenoid and everything works. Is it the physical ignition key? Unit starts runs drives normal but no power mirrors, dock lights, fans, radio, wipers, and ac. Where do the small red, white and black wires goto to switch solenoid? Have 12v on both sides cant find a fuse or relay issues.
Also changed starter recently and the 300amp bus fuse on chassis batteries Click image for larger version

maybe changing the starter and/or the fuse has something to do with this, IF this starting occurring directly after those changes - why the changes?

sounds like the solenoid is not staying 'closed' to make the continued connection for the ancillary devices - maybe the ignition switch itself has lost it's connection when turned ON, such as one or more loose wires on the ignition barrel, or such.

or a FUSE in your fuse box, usually under the driver in the outside storage compartment...or a RELAY.

A couple random times in the past those same things have cut out and came back on. I have switched around and changed solenoids cant find issue. I haven't cut wire loom to trace the red and white wire off solenoid but that's next step if I cant find d a wiring diagram
