Wheel Horse 416 - No power to the switch

I have a WH 416H that usually runs like a top. I started it today to mow the lawn and it started right up, ran for about 10 minutes and suddenly quit. There were no test lights, nothing and no response to the starter switch. I checked around under the hood, all looked well and tried it again. This time the lights came on and it started right up. Ran for 30 seconds and stopped again. Now it acts like there's no battery in it, no lights nothing. Checked everything again, including the battery and all seems as it should be, but still no test lights or power to the switch. Any ideas?

Sounds like a fuse, connection, or wire break.

Fixed!

Yep, it was a connection. A single pin in a multi pin connector was losing contact. Took a while to track it down but I cleaned it up and we're back up and mowing. Thanks.
