Hi ALBIE,  Welcome to the Forum.

Have you looked at the Classic Manual?   Look under Aux 1 Modes,  it is on page 42 of the manual version, that I have.

Have not used this function for AGS,  here  ...   of course,  you will need a genset that can use a single wire for start/stop,  unless you get some form of AGS controller (IMO).

FWIW,   Vic

Hi Albie,
You don't really need AGS to start your genset. If the genset is two wires start, you just have to add a single relay (or DC solid state relay) and control this relay On/Off from the Classic Aux1 (SOC).
Nothing too complicated. As Vic said take look at the Classic manual.
