Sorry to take everyone's time. Thanks for all the comments

The switch by the door operates the motorized disconnect at the rear under the sofa. But that motorized disconnect can be rotated manually, in which case it gets out of synch with the switch. And I think a red light on the switch indicates it's out of synch. So rotating it back usually corrects the problem!

I'm going to repeat because I don't think most responders are getting my point

Problem solved this am, but I haven't seen anything in a manual or any comments that correspond

*my manual switch has 3 positions: off, on, and in between. Only in the in between position does the switch work. I discovered this by playing with it, then my solar installer sent me an email with the same info. He said he mistakenly turned it back all the way to on, instead of the intermediate stop

2015 grand tour.

Sorry. My post above is poorly worded

Only in the in between position for manual disconnect knob does the remote switch work

Do you know where I can find this switch in my 2016 Grand Tour? I don't see anything in the manual about it either!

Should be next to your 120VAC breaker panel. Pull the laminate cover panel from below the rear side seat on the driver's side and it will be evident.

Yes, the manuals are awful. I have a 2015, and it should be the same
* rear side seat on driver's side
* pull off that laminated door with the hand holds on top and bottom, right under that seat
* right next to the breaker panel is a large red knob, about the size of a gas stove burner knob
* as I said, mine has the 3 positions: off, on, and something in between, that seems to allow my remote switch at front of coach to operate. In the off or on position, the remote switch up front doesn't seem to do anything.

Good luck

Mark

Mark,

You described the disconnect switch better than I did. I agree that when the knob is moved all the way in one direction or the other to the On or Off position, the switch by the door is disabled. The switch has to moved to the center, third, position for the switch to work. I discovered this in a similar manner when a service person put the switch in the Off position. You are correct that the manual is silent on this feature.

Jim

Got it! Thanks for the insight.
