Generator Rocker Switch

Does the generator rocker switch on the dash board require pressing it twice to turn off? Starts normal with press, but I have to press it twice to turn it off. Silver leaf shuts it off with one press. My only thought it is suppose to, so you don't press it by accident and shut it off before you want to shut down. Thank you in advance

My 2018 DS requires one push, I do hold it until it stops. Maybe 2 seconds.

My gasser requires only one push, but I have to hold the rocker switch down for a bit until the generator stops completely.

With gas engine generators, you press and let go of the stop switch.

If you continue to hold the stop button, it switchs to prime mode and will start the fuel pump and open the main jet shutoff. That allow the turning engine to draw in gas air mixture without ignition and can cause gas wash and possable backfire conditions.

Read the manual.

Ours requires a brief hold on the rocker switch to start the shutdown sequence. As soon as you hear the generator start to shut down, release the rocker switch.

The London Aire has a diesel generator, so no worries about a "backfire."

I tried one more time, holding it down doesn't help. I differently have to press it twice to shut it down. One more item for Newmar to look at. Thank you all for responding safe travels and stay warm

My last class A was a gasser. The generator switch on the dash worked the same as the one in my current coach. Press and hold until it shuts down.

You're talking about the rocker switch on the generator, right? I think the OP was talking about the rocker switches inside the motor home. On mine I have to hold it down for a few seconds until it stops as well. If I just push it real quick it'll continue running.

Ok update. Per Newmar it does require two presses to shut off. I like that idea so you don't accidental shut off generator. Thank you all for responding
