My prior class c (not a Thor) did not have any forward controls either and had a control center right inside the coach door and that center had all tank sensors, gen, light and slide switches.
I remember when shopping around, a Winny class c that had a panel with 3 or 4 switches on the dash. pretty sure one of them was for the genny.
I too was surprised ....well, not really.... knowing that these things seem to be solely driven by the all mighty BOTTOM $
But given a choice I sure would have opted for the option.
Anyway, this is something i have wanted since day one, and have thought of often, but decided durring my last trip out that I want to do this genny switch. It'll be easy, but the others not so much so I'll have to live without them.
any ideas on a good switch for me to look at?
here area couple of switches I found online
