Generator & 220v

No Battery Switch for Fwd Gen
Voltage Regulator must be on proper generator BEFORE you switch on 220v
Voltage transfer switch for gauge???

Air Compressors

Only one compressor to turn on, other is attached to fwd gen.
Aft Generator is much quieter.
If using Aft Generator for 220V, start both gensets for faster Air Compression
Must be ~80 psi to start engines; second compressor is SLOW
Don’t close valves on compressors. RJ says cuz one is so hard to reach, another is for Horn.
