Default Can't find the schematic...........gen drawer

Dash light on, cylinder switch functional, however there's power to both sides of the lock/micro switch. Lock employed normally closed micro opens the circuit to prevent operating the cylinder lock on. Haven't run into this one before, thought is was a bad switch @ first, of course it's nothing straight forward. This is on Joe's 85 31'.
Not a party chasing wires under the bus, behind the gen set, thoughts greatly appreciated from those that have been there.

Problem is, light on the dash stays on.

I looked over all the doc I have and can't find the circuit for the micro switch on the draw latch. If the draw is latched it should turn out the dash draw-open warning light and, I believe, disable the in-out switch.

Talked to Mike about it. Wondered if someone might have hot-wired the in-out circuit for some reason? Might explain why there is 12 volts on the wires on both sides of the switch (disconnected and checked each wire). Mike will be chasing the circuit, good luck!

Mike checked it out and sure enough, someone ran a hot lead to the switch bypassing the drawer switch

When Gardner mentioned hot wire, I remembered the 12 ga green wire running from the curb side over head over the entry door and into the stair way door under the dinette seat. New micro switch, a little cleanup, adjust the transfer switch access door, all is good.
