The battery switch is probably a booster. If your engine batteries are low the switch will add power to the engine batteries from the house batteries for starting. Not sure what the panel light switch would be.

The panel light switch turns on the panel lights on the dash without the main light switch being on.

I agree, the "new" yahoo site is horrible, no the new site sucks! I have been looking into getting a new website set up for us CC owners. The hard part would be getting all of the archived data, pictures, etc. moved over
Good to hear others have problems with the Yahoo forum, I thought it was just me and my abilities. I finally quit using it a year or so ago and now just check here.

The VMS display on my coach turns on the "Display" on the dash where you access all the info in regards to generator, tire pressure and just a bunch of other info.

I got sound now I found out the speakers run thru a amp and runs with the DHS system. I pressed the DHS system button and presto I have music.

Looks like I will be needing an alternator bearings are going out and a weak output to the batteries. I have a Leece Neville alt part # AOO14884JB and it cost over 500 bucks well I did a cross ref check and I can put in a Delco direct drop in alternator for 152 bucks so I am ordering up the Delco alt.
part number for the Delco if anyone wants it is 8600307 or if you go to Auto Zone it crosses over to part number 8745N but there price is 297 bucks.

Finally got to do my maiden camping trip with the coach it went good for the most part and still need to go thru and address some other things before I travel farther with it. But its more of a comfort to address not any mechanical problems.

Well a little update I finally decided to change my alternator since I am going down to Hilton Head RV Resort this Friday and dont want the old alternator to crap out on me.I have to say the Delco alternator is such a nice compact unit compared to the Leece Neville and way cheaper to buy new than even getting the Neville rebuilt. So as you can see old crappy huge 50 pound boat anchor alternator compared to nice small compact and new Delco alternator.

Also if anyone switches you don't need the ignition switch going to the alternator because the new alternator is self exciting and doesn't need an external power source to excite the field but if you do hook the wire up you will not be able to shut down the motor with the key you will have to hit the e-stop button.

Then I decided to change the front tv last night since I had to stay up all night (I work swing shift) to a flat screen but forgot to take a picture but will get that later and post it.

Leece Neville used to make a alternator that would last 300000-500000 miles in tough over-the-road conditions.
The Delco is a cheap alternative but you get what you pay for, IMO.

Well apparently you need to do better research as the Delco unit is far better with internal wiring made to stand higher operating temperature, it is self exciting, has a dual internal fan as a Leece has one external. also the Delco has a higher efficiency rating so less horsepower loss to make the same amps compared to the Leece.
