Generator is starting when everything is turned off. All settings are set at 0 main switch is turned off. Had RV parked in storage found it running checked hour meter it had been running about 10 hours. What am I doing wrong.

I assume your are referring to the 5 control knobs on the face of the Magnum AGS when say set to 0, which for 3 is off all the way counterclockwise and first on left I donít believe can go lower than 1 hour. When you say main switch is OFF you are referring to the remote start switch? Are you sure its in the middle and not on Test? Have you tried turning off at the generator and run test sequence on AGS?

Perhaps a little more detail. How long in storage, several days or months? No shore power during this time? 10 hours on meter what was voltage when you discovered that it was running automatically? If you shut off at generator and turn back on does it start up automatically?

Turned off main electrical supply. 12.2 volts, 3days before I checked on it.

Had the 7nit at the rv dealership for list of repairs and they told me the generator was running when they went into the unit... the dealer is calling Onan to talk to them but I suspect it is something with the inverter and the ags both magnum dimension products... I don’t have much faith with the dealership coming up with anything.

2018 Jayco Seneca AGS system

GeorgeM,
Thanks nice to know someone else with same problem. Also, with same confidence in dealer. There must be no training from Jayco to dealers.

Let us know what you come up with as our Genny also like to start on its own in our 2018.5 Seneca. I have tried all kinds of different settings with no luck. On our last trip it started at 2am while plugged into shore power. Another time we stopped at a rest area and I get out and the generator is running. We do have the system being enabled by itself, it happened yesterday when we got home and unloaded, went to bed and heard the genny running out our bedroom window. Of course I blamed the DW for hitting the enable switch which was lit up

Yep dealer not much help admittedly they did say they really were not knowledgeable on the AGS... dealer called Onan and Onan said there should be a way to completely disable the AGS unit... not really much help.
