I walked out of the house this morning and heard the generator in our Thor Hurricane running. I had the MH hooked up to shore power in preparation for getting it ready for its winter nap. The Generator had started on its own, has anyone ever had this happen and if so how do you stop it from happening? We had a rain storm during the nightand shore power might have gone off, not sure if that happened.

It’s been topiced in the forums before.

There is a connector that is prone to getting moisture in it (it rained) that you unplug, dry out and then apply do-electric grease to.

Where every it is that getting wet. Any where water could get to if that is the issue. You have a pet inside the Rv, they can step on the switch. Do you have auto run on your Gen, that also can start it if you loose power and it is turn on. If you have a power management system that connects to Gen to keep power the RV also. Unplug power and see what happens. If nothing happens then start looking for a short in a switch or wire harness for the gen set.
