    The batterys about 1 year old. I load tested and all are good. They all sit at 13 volts. I reconnect all wires and go to start. I loose all power. I touch the battery cutoff switch and everything lights up but will not crank the engine.

    Bad switch or keep looking?

    So much fun being stuck in Palestine Ar at the Loves and mechanics on lunch

    sound like you hit the nail on the head with the kill switch. I would take the leads off and connect together, take the switch out of the circuit. sounds like bad connections inside. I have two of those on my KW and mine did he same thing down in AL one evening just about dark. good luck!

    Update mechanic walked up ...I explained to him the probelm. So I asked him to turn the ignition while I touch the cutoff and bingo fires right up.

    Check your battery cutoff switch as he did above. Check your wiring and the switch itself.
