I do this ALL THE TIME! I always feel like a fool when DW says, "Hey! Don't turn that on, I need to bring the slides and awning in!" There's not a lot that she knows better than I do on this rig either!!
ETA: I do it so I can raise the jacks because the engine must be running in order to run the jacks.
As for that 12V main switch, I'm glad this post is here. My 4YO has a bad habit of playing with switches. He knows he's not supposed to, and I've told him several times, but still, he gets curious sometimes.
I just KNOW one day he's going to hit that switch because it's a "juicy target" for him at eye level as he's going up/down the stairs. And there's that neat red light that will dim out slowly after you throw the switch too!!
So, now I know where to look if it happens to me!
