Same here, nothing at all: No light, no noise, nothing. And even when I hold in the battery boost switch, nothing happens within a few seconds, but if I hold it in longer (10 seconds?), as suggested, to let the voltage equalize between the house and chassis batts, the gen starts just fine, as if started from the genset.
It seems to me as though the remote start system, whatever that is (Silverleaf?), is looking for a threshold battery voltage before allowing anything to happen, either by design or due to defect in the system.
Not sure why the remote gen start switch would not simply be wired in parallel to the one on the generator, but oh well, it is what it is.
