Ok, we just bought a 2002 windsong and I am trying to figure all of these switches out but have a few questions. I have a drimng switch on the panel next to the radio panel; any idea what it is? I also have three red switches next to the steps and the battery disconnect inside: what are they for? Lastly I have a AUX START button on the left side of the panel that I cant figure out. My Gen start button is on the right side.
Any help or insight on any of these would be great.
The "aux start" switch is for a situation where your chassis battery goes down. You can hold in the "aux start" switch and start the engine using power from the house batteries. Your alternator will then be able to recharge the chassis batteries. Alternatively, if the coach batteries are down, you can start the engine (so you don't run down the chassis set) and hold down the "aux start" switch to operate something that runs on the coach batteries.
The red switches (I assume you mean lighted) are likely for lights in your storage compartment. They are normally lighted to let you know that the lights are on since you can't see them. The others sound like coach and chassis battery cutoffs.
On the "drimng" switch, are you sure you're reading it right? Could it be for the driving lights?
Yes, there should be a switch for the steps. Hadn't thought about that, but that could be one of the red switches. Turning off the step will keep it out when you're in a campground so that it doesn't move in/out whenever the door is closed/opened.
I'm still suspicious about that "DRMNG" / "DRIVING" switch.
I have a 2003 Windsong 326, Workhorse, 8.1 Vortec, but I imagine a number of things are similar. My red switches over the steps are for: Outside lights, Inside floor lights, Stay switch for the outside steps.
