Oops to many switches

My two year old grandson loves grandpa's MH and loves all the buttons. He is very well behaved but very much a two year old. Last night with grandma and grandpa standing next to him he push the gen start button. It started and ran unroll grandpa could hit the kill switch. Looks like it tripped the 120 breaker to the thermostat and the thermostat was flashing e7 code witch is the breaker. Reset and everything seams fine.
It sure would be nice to have a master off for all those switches as I think we were lucky that nothing got damaged. I blame it on grandma.

blame it on Grandma - are you sure you and my father arent friends LOL

that would be something my father would say

you could always cover the buttons with some sort of a cover like they use for A/C thermostats while the grand kid is there.

Our 21 month old daughter did the same thing once but after that is pretty good about not touching the buttons now. I dont think that could cause any damage to worry about but I could be mistaken. The generator and shore power are hooked thru a transfer switch that is supposed to cut off the generator feed if it is running while shore power might come back on after being out. You should have seen her face after she accidently hit the air horn on full blast while we were at the dealer's lot when first viewing our Berkshire!
