One more thing to check to be sure your emergency procedure will work if the alternator goes kapiut.
Remove shoreline, start the generator, measure the control voltage on the relay with the aux start button pressed to be sure it is engaged. Some IRD/BIRD devices have a disabling feature when the generator is running.
Do check out the device I referenced before. It seems to be working well and the generator disable function is bypassed.
