I do not know how, but I lost all 12V in coach. I have 12v when the gen is running but if I turn off gen the 12V is off. I can not locate master switch - if any.

To get a good answer, give a little information about your RV. There might be someone on here with the same year/brand/model that's already run into your problem and fixed it.

You may have what's called a "salesman's switch" next to your entry door. It's meant to reduce the battery drain of RVs while they're on display.

Winnebago Brave SE 2001 29A. Battery have power. Check the connection. The one switch, by the door is AUX Battery and I try to turn on and off. Nothing. I can hear a solenoid clicking on front.

Sounds like battery disconnect is in off position.
Should be switch normally by the entry door to energize battery disconnect relay. Some Winebagos have battery disconnect behind the entry step. As I remember that is wwhere your batteries are. There is a small metal plate to remove to show disconnects.
Sounds like blown fuse. Some battery disconnect relays have fuse mounted to them.

My batteries are under the step. I look everywhere and can not see any master switch. I trace the Positive wire(big)from battery and could not find any switch. Could it be that the relay give up?.

Yes, it could be relay or blown circuit breaker.
Go to Winnebago website and locate the electrical drawing for your rig.
Option is to follow the positive cable.
Relay could be in the battery control center depending on which one you have.

The relay is in front of vehicle. I can hear it clicks. Will the 10gauge wire be enough for temporary jump?

There is usually a fuse right at the battery. It is like a 250a or 300a fuse. That could have popped
