    $12,000 paperweight

    As we were preparing to leave on our most recent trip, we started up the generator to run the AC (and give it some exercise) and after starting and running for a about 5 minutes, it quit…. I opened the hood to take a look and it was flashing a service code of 2, then 4 blinks. I reset the...

    Used Sea Foam to Get the Generator to Run

    The ONAN/Cummins 4KY generator was challenging to start; if it did, it would not run for long. After reading all the threads here and elsewhere, this is what cured our problem - it may work for you.

    Resolved 2004 Dutch Star Generator Access

    Reached out to seller and he informed there is also a "T" handle on left side at firewall that needs to be pulled as well. Recently purchased this MH and I can't pull the generator out to change out the filters; 1190 hours and no record of when last changed. There is no motorized mechanism...

    Suggestions for solar generator

    I was hoping someone could give me good suggestions for a solar panel generator for my RV. I'm looking to spend 3 to $500. I understand that that will not run my whole RV. I'm basically looking for something to run my bedroom at night. I do not want to use my gas generator. It's really loud. But...
