New RV won't start

Picked up RV last week. Stopped on the way home and it started up fine. Battery is full, but engine won't turn over. Tried both keys. Don't want to run battery down. Anyone have a problem like this? its a Chevrolet chassis. 2501tsc

Only because I've done it before, make sure it is in either Park or Neutral.

Does it crank when you turn the key or nothing?

Cranks but won't turn over. Like when you have a weak battery, but battery is good

Just a thought. If the awning is out, it will not start. Press the awning switch and make sure it is seated in its stowed position.

"Cranks" and "turning over" mean the same thing. Are you saying that the motor does "crank", but will not start and run?

"Exactly"^^^^, Cranking over and Turning over are one in the same.

Does the engine crank, turn , spin, in a normal fashion but not start up and run?

The statement was made it sounds like a "Weak Battery" when cranking but the battery is good, How do you know the battery is good? What are you basing that statement on?

If the battery is in fact good, and if the engine is "Cranking Over", but not starting up and running, do you see an Anti-theft lamp flashing in the instrument cluster?

Have you tried to jump start the vehicle?
