I have aYT48DXLS mower with just 5 hours of use. It has been stored away from the elements. Following mfr cranking instructions(clutch in, slight choke, park brake off, differential locked seat safety sensor activated) I am not getting any turnover. Any idea what I could be missing?

do any dash lights come on? Any whining noises... If it has headlights, are they on?

headlights are fine. the battery has power(sparked for solenoid check) No whining noises, simply nothing seems to 'engage'.

Cranking circuit goes from the key switch to the PTO switch to the brake switch to the solenoid trigger wire
It is a daisy chain so a break anywhere and no crank.
Pull the trigger wire off the solenoid & apply 12 V to the terminal
IF there are 2 trigger terminals then 12 V to one & ground to the other
IF it cranks then that confirms the chain has a broken link
Bypass each switch one at a time to find the culprit
If all of theem are bypassed & still no joy then you have a broken wire.
Check for that by jumping from one switch to the next
find it easier to pull the plug from the key switch and jump the B & S terminal so you don't need to continually turn the key switch with your 3rd hand
