Your answer is confusing to me.

Nope, it doesn't turn off after you "close the door", but rather as soon as you "open the door".

I'm not sure what your getting at about the door.
Now I see why I don't have a charge ling from the rig, my braking sys uses air from the coach.

Confusing? Really?

You're setting in the car....You start the engine and move the transmission to neutral. with me so far? Ok now you turn the key to ACC (or one notch to the left just so the motor shuts down.....and I'm assuming at this point you have all ready have flipped the switch for the fuse, if not, do it now.

At this time, I usually verify that all accessories are off, windows closed, doors shut and the parking brake is released. and the trans is definitely in neutral.

However, if for some reason you have left anything on (radio, nav, AC, ect) when you "open" then door to get out, all those accessory items will immediately turn off. When you then "shut" the door, it does nothing to those accessory items because they are already off when you "opened" the door.

Does this make more sense? Sorry if I was confusing previously.

Thanks Ron now I understand I think. First time out I'm sure I will stop at the rest stop 2 miles from home. I can't understand why I'm having so much trouble getting this one done it's my 5th tow car and my 4th GM. DW tells me it's because I'm old as dirt but what does she know.
Thanks again for the step by step.
