Mystery switch in cab

This switch is to the left if the steering wheel. Clearly to do with battery but not shown in my owners manual. Help?

I believe you use it the supply power from the house battery to the starting battery to jump the starting battery if it goes dead.

Looks like a emergency start switch so you can use house battery to start engine if you kill the chassis battery.

If it is the switch the two previous posters and I believe it is, it will not remain in the on position without your continued pressing (a "momentary" switch).

Yes, it must be held down. Pops back up when released. Nice to know there is a backup for engine battery. Thanks!

Also works the other way to start the generator if the coach battery is low. However a better way might be to start the chassis engine and let the alternator feed the coach battery to start the generator.

Posters profile says it's a 2009. Guess that's where it used to be.
