Sounds like a loose connection or corrosion but it could be many different things in the electrical system. It is hard to find intermittent problems, it needs to act up to find it. Good luck let us know when you figure it out.

Jiggling the key will NOT have any effect on your problem. The key is connected to the ignition switch by a long rod. The ignition switch is under the dash on top of the steering column. Check that connection.

In most automotive applications the alternator will keep the engine running without the battery BUT you coach has a chassis battery disconnect relay. If your alternator charges the battery and the disconnect relay fails when you hit a bump, your engine dies.
Move all the large wires on the disconnect relay to one terminal and see if the problem goes away. Disconnect relay is in the Battery Control Center. Wiring schematic in inside of BCC cover.

A joke I tell folks is "The biggest problem with motor homes is:" then I hold up the key ring "They all fit".

Have you reduced the load on the key cylinder?

Now modern steering column mounted locks the cylinder gear drives a slider in most cases but if it wears enough it might miss a tooth. (I don't think so)

But it does sound like a screw loose. or a loose nut. or other bad connection. This can be a barber shop visit saving job (After you pull all your hair out you don't need the barber)


Home is where I park it.

Not sure it would help but if it is 2000 it should have a connection to check it with a scanner. It may throw you a code to help track it. Most parts stores can code it for you!!

Hope this helps!
