THOR #2829
My 2014 Hurricane (cousin of Windsport) - and if I recall my 2000 Hurricane - had 3 locations to start the generator from...
  • Switch on generator
  • Switch on 'monitor panel' near bathroom (with tank monitors, genny timer, etc)
  • Switch on dashboard
Do either of the interior switches work? Did all of them work before?

When you say will not start - I am assuming it does nothing? (doesn't turn over, etc)...

I'd expect those switches to just be extensions of the outside switch - ie - no separate circuit breakers or fuses - they just close the same starting circuit the 'on genny' switch does.

If neither works - I would start at the genny looking for the wire connections from the interior switches... Not likely that two interior switches would both fail.

If only one interior switch works - then could be at genny end or switch end.

I'm 1000 miles from my RV at the moment (it is staying warm in FL while I am in MI) - so can't check wiring locations on mine at the moment...
