David,

Glad you found the problem, I know very well the feeling.

In my case it wasn't the emergency switch but the mechanic's switch at the rear that I accidentally hit-got the same results!

I've never used my emergency shutoff switch but need to test it  (with the engine off).

I'm going to put a switch guard on mine because it is dangerously close to the reversing switch-a really bad location.

So happy to find that it wasn't anything major.  Your quandry brought the Emergency air shutdown to mind when you first wrote because some years ago, when I was running boats, one of the Boss' kids simply couldn't resist pulling that pretty chrome Tee handle on the side of the helm while he was playing "Captain".  Sad

It liked to have drove me nuts trying to figure out why one engine wouldn't start when it was time to leave.  Fortunately the look on his face (brought be immediately back to my mischievious youth) caused me to go to the engine room and check the damper first.

All's well that ends well! Wink

Glad to hear you got it figured out Dave!

Now you can get the old girl out and drive her around ..... like down this way or up toward Nick and Bruces get together in Delaware!

NOW I reckon you'll have that bus at Timmonsville??? Your only excuse for not bringing it has been resolved. Wink
Don't it feel good once problem's sorted out, and look at how much knowledge you walk away with from these sorts of events.
Take the bus out for some exercise!

That's right JR!
A tin tent is lots better than no tent, and every tin tent is better than any S&S...... mostly.
Besides, a detroit doesn't like being hemmed in. They can't breath unless they can run free. Ask FF what happens to a DD that sits. Bad things, corrosion, rust, mouse houses, mould mildew, black stuff in the tank, just to mention a few.
If nothing else bring her down for a weekend and you and I can go through lots of stuff to make her a better and happier coach all the way around.
Remember, there is a motel across the freeway and we do have some cabins.

Cat would like to have you down here and so would I.
We also have lots of people to intro duce you to.
