    I have a 2008 diesel Class C with a built in Onan GenSet generator that runs on propane. Propane and fuel tanks are full. Have a toggle switch inside the coach to start it. It does start right up but is taking 17-18 minutes before the electricity is up and running. I’m Boondocking and need to run the generator twice a day to use some appliances and TV. I have 2 6volt golf cart batteries that are topped up too. Why is it taking so long for the electricity to start and how can I fix this? I recently had the generator serviced, oil changed, etc. Now I’m worried. I can’t find any information on this particular issue… taking such a long long time to power up.

    Why are there two separate output circuits on my Onan HDKAJ (a Red and a Black wire). Are these two outputs out of phase, can they be used in parallel, are they in fact used in parallel after the power transfer box on a 1996 Airstream Cutter 35.

    OK I was doing all that religiously up until I ran the fuel tank dry or nearly dry, and all of a sudden all the crud in the tank was sucked in and killed the motor.  Now it won't start. I need to know how to drop the fuel tank (It is also a gas station for my atv's,) and clean the fuel lines.  Then God knows what I have to do with the carb to get it running again.
