I think you're right.
I think the dash switch overrides everything - but just in case, I would check the auto-start/run program and see if it is set to auto run when batteries get low (and if batteries actually are low in charge) or set to run at a specific time.

Did you get it shut down? Slide it forward and try the rocker switch on the generator control panel, itself? I agree, it sounds like a switch problem. But like Mike said, it could be the AGS system causing the problem. I would expect the dash switch to override that, though. Wow!

I can shut gen off using switch on the generator itself. Need to find a switch that allows "warm up" option on it. Thanks for reply guys

safe travels

Good morning, Butch

I had to replace a switch several years ago, and I narrowed my search to the Carling V-Series II-III switches.

If your coach is like ours, you will want a DPDT, momentary, ON - OFF - ON, with indicator light. You might give the folks at NW RV Supply a call, and they likely will have one for you.

GEN ON/OFF Switch V8D2: nwrvsupply.com

https://www.carlingtech.com/rocker-s...-series-ii-iii

Looks from the first link like NW RV Supply will be able to help you, Butch. Yay!

We have 3 switches on our 2011 - one on the genny, one on the dash and one mid-coach - try the other switches to isolate it to the dash switch

switch "NO"??

To my surprise my other gen switch in rear will not shut down gen either. Both switches will start but neither one will stop. Any ideas now guys?

Possibly a disconnected wire. Verify that each switch has all the wires connected. Also look for any inline fuses.

Yes I do have AGS, why? I wouldn't think both switches would be connected in Shut down position on them. I am going to call Onan Monday. Thanks again for comments guys.

Maybe the settings on the auto gen start is preventing the shut off ( DC volt)
