    i need a simple way of starting a generator that uses a two momentary switches to start and stop it. Our inverter has gen. start/stop mode but it only supplies 12 v to start and drops to stop.

    Do you mean that the gen control requires a momentary 12V to start and a momentary 12V to stop - on separate wires? Or is the gen on/off control via separate momentary voltage free contacts?
