When using the generator the system will not allow the Main Shelter Breaker to be turned “ON” until a purging cycle is complete. This is a safety feature that does not function while using shore power.
Before turning the 60 amp power breakers on to power-up the shelter, you must check for the presence of flammable/explosive fumes. Assemble the portable gas detector as shown to the right and insert the wand into port in entry door to check for fumes.
Press the Screen Shift button once to see the generator voltage output.
