No power to RV

My neighbor has a 2019 Beyond 22C. His engine/van battery died, and I just replaced it for him. But we can't get power to the RV. The red wire on the van battery that I think goes to the RV systems has charging system voltage on both sides of the inline fuse or whatever that is. I have checked all fuses in the panel behind the driver seat, and all breakers and fuses in the panel under the bench aft of the shower. All fuses are good, and all breakers are on. None of the fuses have any power to them. The control panel behind the driver seat has nothing going on. The solar control panel shows an empty battery. I don't know how to interpret any of its rotating indicators. The generator has a fuel reading (think that's what it is), but nothing happens if I attempt to prime or start it.

What should I be looking at? Thanks!

Well, the coach has its own battery, you know. That could also be dead. As a quick test, usually somewhere near the driver's seat is a switch which, if held down, will jumper the two batteries together.

It's supposed to also charge the coach battery as the vehicle is driven.

Someone with more knowledge of that specific unit can tell you where the switch is, and where the solenoid/relay that connects the two batteries together for charging is.
