My remote starter for the genny is on the dash to left of the steering wheel. Fine for when Im driving but climbing over the 'hide a bed' and jackknife sofa and the people sleeping in them sux.
I'd really like to have it where all the other controls, water pump etc are but instead of moving it, could I easily just add a 2nd remote starter switch ? I'm not worried about the difficulty of running the wires but could I just tap the wires going to the existing switch? I'm not sure how the switch works, down to choke / or prime , up to start and back down to turn it off.

Max, if you will put the two switches in parallel as 007 has stated you will be fine. Let us know how you do.
