Onan HdKbA generator

I have a 2005 cross country with three places where I can start the generator but it only starts from the unit itself from outside the coach, I have a switch on the dash to warm up the glow plugs and then start. Over the door entrance I have a start and stop switch, i replaced the dash switch and over the entrance and still does not work. Anybody have suggestions?

I assume you are able to start/stop from the rocker switch at the generator?

If so, you might have a poor connection in the control cord plug from the generator to the dash. Follow the cord form the generator to the plug, pull the plug apart, spray liberally with Electronic Contact Cleaner and then add a dab of Dielectric Grease to the pins and reassemble. Good Luck.
