Question 2018 3011DS Question

Maybe I should know this, but I am showing someone my coach and I was telling him about the battery override switch that I was sure I had. (in my last Class C I had one on the dash). But I can't find it anywhere. It's the way to start your coach if the engine battery is dead and you need the house battery to start the engine.
Do we have one or not?

??? not on the dash???


I'll be going to the storage place tomorrow and will look for it. Is it on the floor? is it labeled? I can't wait to find it, I thought the dash was the perfect place for it.


In my last class c I had to use it once after a couple months in storage. I had so much parasitic drain that I was stone dead. since then I have knife switches on the engine battery to prevent this.

Sit in the driver's seat and with your left hand, reach down just below the side of the seat. Should be right there, facing the door.

I can’t find this on my 2018 3051 model. Is the switch only on certain models?

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

The exact location of the switch depends on which drivers seat you have.
Standard seat - Left side seat frame.
Swivel seat - Left side swivel base.
Power seat - Dunno

I assume that moves around depending upon models, years and options.

Found the switch

I thought you all were funning me. I looked on the left -nope, I looked on the right - nope, then I looked at the front of the seat and there it is. For the record, I have a six way power seat.
I wonder if there is any literature telling where they put it?
If it wasn't for this forum I probably would never have found it -THANKS

Hmmm, never would have thunk power seats would have made a difference. But, then again, I'm not an engineer.

Open drivers door and look at the driver's seat base where power seat controls would be. You can't miss it.
At least that's where mine us on the manual swivel seat.
