Default No power

Hey guys.
I'm back with a sudden issue, and I could use some help.
Was out for a ride the other day and the following day I'm not getting any power.
The battery is good. reads 12.8v on the tester.
When I turn the key to on only the oil light comes on. Nothing else works.
Head lights, hazards, turn signals, brake lights, horn..
Looked at all the fuses, none are burned out.

Did you check the fuses on the starter relay? Those are your main fuses should be 30amp fuses.

is there anyway your negative on the battery may have came loose?also sometimes in rare occasions fuses can be bad even though the connecting part in the middle is still intact i would try another fuse just to rule it out ,you could just grab a working one from your car right quick to try

No. That is on there tight.

It was really hot the following day I tried to start it also. I forgot to put on the all weather cover.

There are 2 ground leads off the negative battery post. Check both for proper connection, tight, and clean.

If that turns up nothing, I'd check the ignition switch next.

Been so busy since the last time I've posted. Haven't found any time to check it. Will do so tomorrow though.
