You have it hooked up in such a way that your not powering down the generator but you are unhooking the ignition from the battery but not form the generator system and by doing it that way the generator is still producing voltage so it keeps the ignition system powered up. Be careful because having it that way you can/will get a nasty shock that can in fact cause you harm and if you have a heart condition maybe kill you

Well said, and point taken. Does anybody have a wiring diagram concerning voltage reg, generator, and ignition switch? I of course need to buy all the related manuals, but Christmas wiped out all the $ for a while. But thanks to all for the input, including the warning about voltage and cardiac arrest, it is a timely and relevant point. Hugh

The fact that it can hurt you is not something that is likely to happen but all it takes is less then 100Th of an amp to kill and a generator puts out 35 plus amps so yep many time more then enough to kill if you did get hooked up in a wrong way. I prefer to warn a people of something that is not likely to happen then to have it happen
