Genset Start Switch, or *Really* Cheap AGS...
When we woke up this morning (at home), the generator was running in the coach. This is sort of unusual, to say the least. We were plugged in, and the rig doesn't have an autostart system, but start on its own it apparently had. I traipsed outside in by slippers and robe to shut it off.
An hour or two later, it started up again! I shut it off again. Then I turned off the coach battery disconnect, and the instant I did, it started again. This turned out to be coincidence, I found later. I turned the battery back on and the gensert back off. Then I tried to turn it on, and it wouldn't crank. I pulled the genset out and pushed its start button and it fired right up. I turned it off and ran the slide back in. A minute or two later, it turned over, perhaps once, and went silent. A few minutes later, the same thing. I tried the remote start panel in the bedroom and it also did not work. Hmmmm...
Finally, I unplugged the center lead from the dash's genset start switch. Everything now works normally except that switch. New one on order...but I thought I'd share.
