The thought occurred to me. My plan is to have the control panel moveable. The panel has the hour meter in it and I want to keep track of use. I will have the panel setup to be directly on the genset for use at my home or to operate radio gear for field day. I will also have a mount in the trailer with a pigtail to the exterior with a plug in extension from the trailer exterior to the genset to setup the panel for remote start from the trailer interior. The start sequence of the ONAN is that you press down the start side of the toggle switch, all the safeties are overridden, when the generator is up to speed a light on the center of the switch comes on and the unit is good to go with the safeties engaged.

Thanks Jim

Gen operation

Yup, the startup is exactly like the one in a SOB class A I owned. If you do decide to remote start with any kind of load, I'd recommend a transfer switch like a class A RV's that has a timer. It will let the generator run for about 60 seconds prior to engaging the load. Available at most RV dealers

Mike, I like heavy and quality. I already have a boat; it is one of the few that survived Katrina because she is heavy. I have a collection of Ham Radio Gear known as boat anchors which I canít get enough of. I know I am not right it is a sickness.
