2012 SD 217 won't start

Went to get the 2012 SD 217 ready for the summer, the starter won't engage on turning the key, gauges don't do anything, no click from the starter, checked the ignition and getting continuity through the "run" and "start" when turned to them, any ideas where the fuse would be?

    From what you are describing, you have a poor or non-existent connection from the battery to the starter.  All these connections are back by the transom area and are the most prone to corrosion.  Besides the battery connections, check the in-line fuses/circuit breakers coming off the battery that are often susceptible to the corrosion process.   These will have red colored wires and my look similar to the one shown below.
