(This is a problem we all face)
Can you say, “burn down my coach”? If you do not read this vital information and do what it says, you run this risk. I hate people who use “doom & gloom” to attract attention but in this case the fears are very well founded. There are others who approach this issue in other ways and I appreciate and respect their views BUT, this issue is too serious to wonder if you are safe or not. We totally bypass the problem by rewiring the alternator light circuit– take it out of the circuit to make sure there will not be a problem— and you should to.
Go to Alt. light circuit refit for this information. Please do this. There, I’ve said all I can about this– it’s now up to you.
If you run the original Onan generator, you need to do this!
So there you are, it’s hot outside and you need to make the roof AC dump ice cubes, you are on the road…. this means that ole troll Onan back there has GOT to work! So you mosy over to that remote panel there at the door. You sneak up on it, give it an affectionate rub, take a deep breath and push the start switch. Will it start? Man, I hope so and you hold that button in harder hoping it will help somehow.
Does this sound familiar? By definition an old generator is not usually kept at the American Red Cross waiting to be used in a disaster and brother when it’s hot… it’s a disaster if you can’t cool the place down. This is a very simple way to “hot wire” the electrical system in your generator to force it to run. And in the event that the generator will only run with it hot wired, pull out the momentary switch in this circuit… install an on/off toggle switch and run your generator that way. Click Onan generator primer circuit for this information.
