Cummins Onan
RV Generators
The Leader in Reliable Power on the Road
Quality Performance
at High Temperatures and Altitudes
The Leader from Day One
Cummins Onan RV generators are built by Cummins Power Generation,
the global leader in generator design and construction. For nearly 90
years, our generators have been providing reliable stationary and mobile
power for cities, hospitals, shopping centers, military vehicles and fire
engines around the world.
Internal combustion engines can suffer power output losses of up to 1% for every 10 oF increase
in ambient temperature over 85 oF, and a 3.5% power loss for every 1,000-foot increase in altitude.
Cummins Onan RV generators are built with sufficient power margin to provide rated power on even the
hottest days and at high altitudes.
Since mass production of RVs began in the 1960s, Onan has led the
way in reliable mobile power. With gasoline, LP and diesel-fueled units,
Cummins Onan offers the most complete line of generators designed
specifically for motorized and towable RVs.
A comparison of a competitive generator to the RV QG 4000 shows why this is important. Even though
a generator with rated watts may seem adequate to run a 13,500-BTU roof air conditioner, when higher
temps and altitudes are encountered, the competitive unit’s power degrades enough that it cannot run
a single air conditioner.
Model CCK circa 1961
Designed and Built Specifically for RVs
Our engineers devote some 100,000 work-hours to developing each new model. For example, we work hard
to reduce noise and vibration. Every part is engineered specifically to provide efficient, quiet and reliable power
in a compact configuration with easy access for service.
So whether your travels take you to desert heat or mountain heights, your Cummins Onan generator
is designed to keep on performing.
Consistent Power even at Las Vegas Temperature
From the smallest gasoline model to the newest diesels with pure sine wave output, Cummins Onan generators
meet or exceed the RV industry’s power quality standard. You can trust a Cummins Onan generator to deliver
consistent power to toasters as well as laptops.

Quiet Is a Priority
Whether you’re dry camping in the quiet wilderness or
spending time with friends in a campground filled with
amenities, your generator’s operating noise can make
or break your getaway. That’s why Cummins Onan
puts so much effort into designing RV generators with
the lowest operating noise levels available today.

Advanced enclosed muffler makes Cummins Onan generators the quietest
in the industry. A cast aluminum mounting base provides stability and vibration
control. The powerful diesel engine, Cummins Onan alternator and Cummins
Onan inverter work together efficiently to deliver consistent 120-volt power.

Convenience
The Installed Generator Advantage
RVing is all about enjoying nature and the open road without sacrificing the comforts of home. That goes
for towables as well as motorhomes. Fifth wheels, SUTs, travel trailers — they all can have an installed
generator, which makes a big difference in convenience.
Convenience
Energy Command Generator Controls
TM
An Energy Command system from Cummins Onan is a low-cost, high-value enhancement that makes power
management easy for any type of motorhome or towable package. There are three models.
EC-30W Wireless Autostart
No More Wrestling Matches
RVs with installed generators give you power at the push of a button. No wrestling a heavy portable out
of the back of the pickup. What’s more, there’s no need to deal with small fuel tanks, and no worries about
bad weather affecting the operation of the generator. Instead, when you are dry camping, the installed
generator provides convenient power for the comforts of home, including A/C, refrigerator, range, lights,
TV, stereos and more.
The EC-30W system is a portable, wireless generator monitoring and autostart system that can be easily
added to your RV in just minutes. It mounts on the wall or can move with you. Special features include:
•
Speaking of push-button convenience, installed generators have a start/stop button placed right inside the
towable RV. No searching for extension cords or yanking on a starter rope. Plus, installed generators are piped
right into to an onboard gas tank (in the case of sport utility trailers) or LP tank, so they run a lot longer.
So when you’re in the market for a towable, ask your dealer about the benefits of one that’s gen-ready —
or even better, one that comes with a Cummins Onan generator already installed.
House battery monitoring and automatic charging
•
Programmable quiet times
•
Automatic generator starting to support air conditioner
operation if a pre-set temperature is exceeded
•
Automatic generator starting to continue electricity usage if shore power is lost
•
Control module recharging when plugged into a wall outlet
Best of all, because it’s wireless, attachment of an easily installed module on your
Cummins Onan generator is all that’s needed to add these handy features.
EC-30 Installed Autostart with Enhanced Features
The EC-30 is a permanently installed and wired generator monitoring and autostart system
with a number of convenient management features in addition to those in the EC-30W:
•
Digital generator hour meter
•
Diagnostic text messages
•
Built-in memory for all programmable settings
The EC-30 is a convenient, cost-effective system when installed by an RV OEM.
A basic EC-20 is also available, which includes battery and generator monitoring
without autostart.

Choosing the Right
RV Generator
To determine which model is best for your RV,
start by estimating your power needs. We
recommend using the calculator on our website, at
http://www.cumminsonan.com/rv/select. Once you
have estimated your wattage needs, use the calculator
to tell us more about your specific requirements, your
preferred fuel type (whatever the RV engine uses) and
whether you need 50 or 60 Hz. (In North America
60 Hz is standard.) The calculator takes it from there.
To experience our world-class service and
support, go to cumminsonan.com/locator,
select RV and enter your city, state and
ZIP code, to find a location near you.
