AGS disabled (off) & Genny turns in by itself!

Anyone know how a generator can turn itself in if the AGS is enabled?

I disabled the AGS with the genny off. Walked outside and it turned on about two minutes later. Went inside and verified that the AGS was off. Turned off the generator again and walked back outside. Guess what happened a couple of minutes later?

Ideas?

Can you clarify:
"Anyone know how a generator can turn itself in if the AGS is enabled?"

I am guessing you meant to say how can gen turn itself ON with AGS disabled ?????

imho, one of the parameters is still wanting it to start... maybe you really didn't turn it off ?

it does have SO many toggles and parameters that it could be easy to leave on...

on ours there are really two parameters that would trigger it - one the temp, and one the batteries State of Charge....

good luck finding it

Mike; Did you put the setting back to RV instead of OTHER to see if it was still starting on its own?

Hi - Check out the pins of the interconnect at the generator. Water can get in there and cause issues. Also know where the neighborhood pets are. Generators have been started by animals hitting the start switch on the genset. Likely not your case as you were right there.

Had the same issue with my 2014 Ventana. Did all of things recommended here, and still the problem persisted. Service appointment followed. I was told that there was a faulty module in the AGS system that would need to be replaced. While the part was on order I just disconnected the wiring harness when I would be away from the coach for any length of time. Never did get the module replace -- I traded the rig in and bought a new Mountain Aire! Problem solved.

Yea. I was in a hurry (we were leaving) and didn't proofread my post. The title has the word "in" that should be "on" and I meant to say "disabled" in the first sentence.

It started on its own twice. The third time I shut it off and waited, it didn't restart. Norm, after the first time I put it back to RV. In ALL cases (every time it turned itself on), I checked and AGS was disabled (off).

Haven't checked anything in the genny compartment (wiring, condensation, etc.) yet.
