Hi! If you have the vibrating bed option it draws a lot of power, so if you are at a truck stop on battery power, you will need to start the Genset before turning on the Vibrating Bed! Paul

Having just come off of a week long boondock, I can tell you what I think it is for. When the auto-genstart fires up the generator at 3 AM, (scaring the living daylights out of you ) you can reach over and shut the darned thing off. Those first 2 seconds when the generator auto-starts can be heart-stoppers!.
