Do I have an emergency start switch for my 320BH?

Does my Leprechaun 320BH have an emergency start switch and if so where would it be hiding. I don't see or can find. I am guessing not but perhaps it may. Does it or does it not - should it or should it not?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure what you wish to start in an emergency?

I have heard and even seen on another brand we looked at. I believe the functionality is to give either your Chasis batteries or your Coach Batteries the ability to share power. Not sure which battery is used to start the genny but in theory, it would pull from the other battery if used...and vice versa if the engine battery is too low to start, it will pull from the coach batteries...

Hope that helps clarify what appears to not be present on my rig.

I talked with Ron - he said that my particular model doesn't come with one but is wired for one. Sounds like it isn't that big of deal to have it purchased and installed. About 1hrs worth of labor plus the expense of the switch.

May look at that down the road.
