This statement is not accurate. Monika, please update your profile and add what year/make/model coach you are talking about. Generator auto start is a feature on some
coaches (the transfer switch does not start the generator). What happens is when there is no incoming AC power and
the house battery voltage reaches a preset threshold, the generator auto start module will cause the generator to start. There are many reports of generators starting on their own from small animals bumping the manual start switch after using the generator for warmth (not many reports), or moisture in the plugs for the generator's wiring (most reports). My bet if you don't have generator auto start is that there may be moisture in the plug for your generator wiring.
