What is the white lever...

On the 1500's inside the fuel door left side? Is this the petcock? Can't find any info on it.

The lever is a release for the radio or the shelter. Hopefully someone will be along soon with a better answer.

there are actually 2 of them. one on the right and one on the left. the lever in the center releases the dust cover for the radio.

Yeah the center one I use regularly. Good to know what those are for. I went and looked for the one on the right, i didn't see it before. Thanks all.

There should be two white levers. One on each side. These latches hold down the radio housing.

Well, perhaps it's time for you guys to replace your air filter.
