HWH control cover

Ok so minding my own business about to fall asleep when the coach starts to rock. Im like "what tha?!"

Went immediately to the drivers seat and noticed the HWH panel was on and starting to bring the jack up. Yikes!

Yah. Well I know it was the cat that stepped on it. 👎. The panel is now covered with ill fitting box to prevent from happening again. Do they make a cover for these to protect against tampering by busy cats??? ( or maybe children)

We got lucky on ours. The entire HWH panel is on a small, tilt out drawer-front. It's right by the gas pedal, sort of. When I need it, I pull on the handle which, tilts the drawer front and there's the HWH panel. So, no chance of "tampering Cats" on this one.

Odd. My HWH panel is energized through the key switch. The cat would have to turn on the key first.

Similar incident happened to us one night in the Bounder. We were in the Cascade mountains far up a forest service road and we parked when we came upon deep snow. In the middle of the night the generator started up and it does not have auto start. Yes yikes a good term. I killed the generator, turned on the headlights and outside coach lights but saw nothing. The cats sleep on the dash at night and their path to their beds is right in front of the gen switch. One of them must have paused with its foot on the switch long enough to start the gen. Gets the adrenaline going that is for sure.

Who in their right mind would have a cat?

Anybody want my two cats?

Just kidding. I wouldn't part with the cats for anything.
