Default Hey All

New user here, just got a 2004 Gulf Stream Atrium 8411. I do have a question about accessing the generator. Is there a key that opens the panel in front to access the generator?

The generator door under the windshield on my 2007 Tour Master had two ACE style latches -- the matching key had large wings to turn the latch when unlocking and locking. The door had a central retractable handle and the door hinged out and down to access the four 6 volt inverter/generator batteries and the generator service items such as the coolant and the oil. Not sure if your 8411 is similar...

Below is a closeup view with the door open. The second image shows the ACE-keyed latches circled in red and the flush swivel out handle in the green rectangle:

Shattow,


That "key" is not specific to your coach -- it is the same removable handle for all the Southco latches used on these access panels. You can buy a pair of them for under $10 here:
