Out of curiosity. Where is this unit located? This is not a normal operator interface? The operator interface with the tank levels and slide controls only shows simple switches for the generator . It this unit under the bed or in the generator compartment?
Our 2018 Seneca is scheduled to be complete June 7 and, while we do not have a delivery date, we feel it should arrive at Orlando RV shortly thereafter. We are partially full timing in this truck, as we call it since it looks like a semi, and really cannot relinquish to a dealership for upgrades once we sell our current TT. Therefore, we want to ask Orlando RV (RV One) to do a few upgrades before we pick it up.
I would like to upgrade the Truma to the comfort to allow for freeze protection and diy descaling; has anyone done this yet?
I know that the new Seneca comes with an auto gen start, but as Rob will know, the earlier models has a gen start that would not start the gen during "sleep" hours your could set. I believe the old gen start would monitor the batteries and keep then as a safe charge. What would I need to add to a '18 Seneca to monitor the batteries and have the ability to set times when the gen starts like you could have in the '14, '15, '16 model years?
I know many of your have purchased your unit from Orlando RV; are there any tricks to watch out for when dealing with this dealership; we believe they have treated us fair and appropriate this far, but we have experienced little issues as you approach the end of the deal in the past.
I noticed the cabinets have changed in the '18; do you still like your new look if you received your 2018?
I need to sell my 2016 Keystone Sprinter 295RKS with residential refrigerator, 50 amp service, and a champion generator I purchased separate. Does anyone have an idea of what this would be worth; anyone know anyone around North Carolina who wants a TT?
We have learned much on the forum and look forward to the replies.
I just picked up my 2017 a month ago and it has the Magnum Dimensions ME-AGS-S Automatic Generator Start that includes a controller (mounted in the bathroom cabinet above the toilet) that allows you to set "Quiet Time". Are you sure this is not included in the 2018 Seneca?

Ours is inside the vanity mirror to the left side of the bathroom sink, 37TS model. Sure hope this helps...
Great info. Thanks. I am getting a 37ts as well so this will help. Now just to figure out the lack of freeze protection in the truma. The unit is so new the dealer is not a truma dealer so they can not get parts or do the upgrade.
Sorry for any confusion. The normal genset start-stop switch is on the main control panel just inside the entry door. The programmable AGS system is inside the vanity mirror over the sink (in the 37TS floorplan) Hope this clarifies things. If pictures are still needed, let me get our back from the shop after we get the squawk list done following the 1st shakedown trip.
I got the call yesterday that it had arrived. I went and they took me to an off site lot that they keep the sold units at. They flipped me the keys and said I could pull it out and open the slide and then they left. I inspected as best I could. Turned on the generator and started the ac units. Only found a few minor issues. Completed paperwork and set up for delivery for next Saturday. So to nłhas answer your question. Not yet but soon.
