F-150 Wont Start

I have a 1998 f-150 that I just drove from Virginia to Colorodao. It ran fine the whole way here. I parked it in Coloroado for a week while I went to utah for a week. When I came back and tried to start my truck it would not start. When I try to turn the key over the truck makes a loud click/thud noise and all power is lost to entire truck. Once in about 10 tries the truck will kick over a little bit and then just do a single click/thud and then nothing. I cleaned all the terminsals as there was some corrosion on the ends and replaced the battery with a brand new one today. Still same problem. Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Try rapping on the starter and see if it starts. Otherwise check power on both wires while you turn the key to start and check your ground to the starter. If those are okay then replace the starter.
