How do I see if a 2014 Newmar Ventana 4369 has auto start?

After looking at several coaches for sale I have noticed that I don't see a generator control panel anywhere. I do see a Generator start switch on the dash though..

Is there anything that would clue me in if the coach has the auto generator start option and is the dash mounted toggle the only control on this year model?

The generator auto start function is controlled by the energy management panel in the overhead compartment ahead of the passenger seat. At least, it was in our 2014 Ventana LE.

Yes. Note the "AGS" button for "Automatic Generator Start." The setup parameters are accessed through that panel.

I believe all the 2014s had AGS.

Thanks Tj ..

Would you have any idea where they would have mounted this part of the system?

I do not recall seeing that item in our 2014 Ventana LE. I'm wondering if it is an older version. If it is, indeed, present in the 2014 then I would look in either the generator compartment or the electrical bay.

On our 2014, the AGS was software controlled without the need for mechanical adjustments as suggested by the controls in your photo.

Good luck.

TJ

The AGS panel is mounted on the aft bulkhead, one bay forward of the pegboard bay on our 2016. It is placed close to the Dometic control box for air conditioning input. Don't know if they "stadardize" this location going thru the years.

If you have the Networked AGS, it will show from the remote. If you go to TECH, then dial up REVISIONS, as you scroll thru the connected components, you will see AGS REV X.X , etc... 0 would not be installed or not communicating, a number means you have it.

Oops...

It actually says Versions instead of Revisions.

Our AGS reports Version 5.4
