Re: Vetus Alarm
There is already a 12V supply that is active only when the main engine is on... it runs the blowers.
I'll second the what Bill R said about the Onan generator already being protected this way. Doubling up really doesn't buy you anything except more wires and complexity. But a useful addition to the main drive engine.

Has anyone installed a Vetus exhaust temp alarm? http://www.defender.com/pdf/xh_exhaust_alarm.pdf https://www.vetus.com/en/search/?q=exhaust+alarm I know owners have used a Borel alarm.... but this seems to be a good idea also and the price is right. It has a sound and visual alarm and Vetus says 2 sensors could be attached to one unit so an owner could protect both the engine and generator. There are 12V and 24V versions and I am curious as to whether there is a convenient way to wire a 12V so it is activated only when either the generator or engine is operating.
