I recently discovered that the generator would not kick on automatically when not on shore power when some of the triggers should have started it. Two instances were when the coach "start load" value was exceeded, and the other was when the A/C needs to start (yes, the auto gen start is set on the thermostat). It turns out there was a loose connection somewhere and now it appears to work properly. However... recently I had the genset set to "manual off" and I turned it on manually to exercise it for 45 minutes. About 15 seconds after I turned it off, it came on again! And, the message on the display said it had automatically started the maximum number of times and I needed to clear the counter. Was this a case of the electronics being confused or have others experienced strange behavior.
