Anyone had this problem?

When I crank my generator, if I shut it down in the cab, it will shut down as normal, but blows the fuse on the generator control board. If I shut it down using the shut off switch on the generator, it does fine.

Again, give generator info.
Remote start and stop is the same function as local, just longer wires.

Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

Sounds like you have a short in the switch, or the wiring to that switch.

You have a bad ground wire from the switch. Clean where it attaches to ground and you should be ok.

Agreed.. Usually the cab switch is just connecting a ground to the control board..
