Determining Your Generator’s Power Capability
To determine what your generator can power, use the chart on the opposite page to
estimate the total combined watts of all the appliances, lamps, battery chargers, air
conditioners and other electrical products you typically use at the same time. (All
electrical appliances and lights are labeled with their power requirements expressed
in watts or amps). You can use any number of appliances simultaneously, as long as
their combined wattage doesn’t exceed the electrical output of your Onan® or
Camp Power™ generator, or your RV’s circuit breaker rating.

Managing Electrical Loads
Understanding Battery Charging Times
If you try to operate too many things at once, you’ll “overload” the generator. You’ll
know because your lights will flicker or the circuit breakers on the generator or the
main coach electrical panel will trip open, stopping the flow of power.
Battery charging loads can also overload your generator and you may not realize
this is happening because the charging starts automatically. Be aware of how large
this “invisible” load can be.
• Air conditioners need “reserve” power to start. Too much baseload can prevent
air conditioners from starting.
• Air conditioners typically draw 1400 -2400-watts, depending on size and
operating conditions (more power is needed at high temperature or humidity).
During start-up, air conditioners can draw 3-4 times that amount.
• Battery chargers come on automatically and can draw a large load (up to
3000-watts). Manage your electrical loads by adjusting battery charge rates
to best suit your needs. Consult your inverter/charger manual or manufacturer.
• If you have an automatic generator stop/start system, learn how to control
it. Consult your inverter/charger manual or manufacturer for adjustment
procedures. Adjust battery charge rates to best suit your total electrical needs.
This system is not part of an OnanВ® or Camp Powerв„ў generator.
• Disable auto-start systems while refueling, servicing, storing or long-term parking.
In addition to being aware of battery charging loads, it is important to know that
battery charging takes time. The chart below shows how long a 100A charger must
run before reaching 100% battery charge.
NOTE: The generator will continue to run after a circuit breaker trips. Turn off all
appliances and reset the breaker. If the breaker trips again with all electrical loads
off, you may have a short circuit in your wiring. Turn off the generator and contact
a qualified electrician.

EXAMPLE: Dashed box shows that using a 100A battery charger, a 600A/hr battery
bank at 60% charge level must be charged for 4.2 hours before it is fully charged.
Conditions that increase battery charge times:
• If too many DC loads like pumps and fans are applied, the charger may never
catch up with the batteries. The Battery Charging Times Chart assumes no other
DC loads are operating.
• 120v air conditioning loads powered through the inverter lengthen charge time
due to power sharing. Consult your inverter/charger’s manufacturer manual for
charge rate control.
• Poor batteries, cables, or connections.
Manage electrical loads to get the most from your generator and electrical system.
If you need help, ask your coach dealer for training on how to operate auto-starting
systems as well as how to adjust battery charger output. If the dealer can’t help,
contact inverter/charger or control manufacturer.

OPERATING MOTOR DRIVEN APPLIANCES
STARTING AND STOPPING PROCEDURES
When using an appliance with a motor, turn it on and let it reach normal running
speed before starting other appliances. Air conditioners, like all electric motors, can
draw up to three times more power during start up than during normal operation.
While this is true for all electric motors, it can be especially true in air conditioners if
the compressor tries to start against built-up high pressure in its refrigeration system.
Your OnanВ® or Camp Powerв„ў generator can be started and stopped from the
standard control panel on the generator, or from the optional remote control panel
inside the vehicle if your RV is so equipped. Your Operator’s Manual outlines the
simple steps for starting and stopping. Remember to:
AIR CONDITIONER “SHORT-CYCLING”
When an air conditioner runs, the compressor builds refrigerant pressure. If the
compressor is then shut off, either manually or by satisfying thermostat demand,
it must stay off for some period of time, usually 3-4 minutes, to allow pressure in
the system to equalize before it can be safely restarted. Trying to restart the air
conditioner compressor before pressure equalizes is known as “short-cycling”. If an air
conditioner is “short-cycled” the results may be; 1) tripped air conditioner circuit
breaker; 2) generator shut down on overload; or 3) tripped air conditioner thermal
overload. The air conditioner thermal overload will reset itself after the compressor
cools. It cannot be reset manually.
Some, but not all, RV air conditioner thermostats have built-in time delays to prevent
short-cycling. Short-cycling occurs in some RVs when the thermostat is mounted so that
cold air blows directly on it. If this happens, the thermostat shuts the compressor off
before the cabin has cooled, but quickly warms back up and signals the compressor
to restart before refrigerant pressure equalizes. In this case, the flow of air from the air
conditioner should be directed away from the thermostat, or the thermostat should be
relocated. Short-cycling can be prevented by always being sure the air conditioner
rests for 3-4 minutes after the compressor shuts off before trying to restart it.
EFFECTS OF HIGH ALTITUDE AND EXTREME
TEMPERATURES
If you frequently travel at high altitudes or in extreme temperatures, be aware that your
generator can lose power in lower-density air caused by such conditions. You won’t
be able to operate as many electrical devices in those circumstances as you could
under normal operating conditions.
• Power decreases 3.5% for each 1,000 feet above an altitude of 500 feet. For
example, to operate at 4,500 feet (4,000 feet above rated generator altitude)
multiply 3.5% x 4 (4,000 ft) = 14% power loss. Then multiply .14 x your
generator’s power rating. Example, 4,000 watts x .14 = a loss of 560 watts
at that altitude.
• Turn off air conditioners and large electrical loads before starting the
generator.
• Turn off all appliances in cold weather before starting for best long-term
performance.
• Let the generator warm up for a few minutes before turning on appliances.
• Turn off air conditioners and large electrical loads and let the generator run
for 3-5 minutes before stopping, to allow it time to cool down.
BREAKING IN YOUR NEW GENERATOR
Your generator will perform better if you follow the break-in procedure
recommended in the Operator’s Manual. The break-in process typically involves
running the generator at about 50 percent load for two hours, then at about 75
percent load for two hours, then letting it cool down. You should change the engine
crankcase oil after the first 20 hours of operation, and every 100 to 150 hours
thereafter. (See the Maintenance Chart on page 15 for specific intervals.)
EXERCISING YOUR GENERATOR
It may seem strange that “not” using a machine could cause performance problems,
but with RV generators that’s exactly the case. Regular “exercise” is an important part
of keeping your generator healthy. Lack of exercise can cause moisture build-up and
fuel system damage that make it run poorly. In fact, in as little as 30 days, the fuel in
gasoline-powered generators can begin to break down into gums and varnishes that
clog the fuel system. Fuel varnishing results in hard starting and surging. (A surging
generator never settles at a stable operating speed.)
To prevent such problems, we recommend running gasoline generators at a minimum
of 50 percent capacity (2000-watts, or one air conditioner for a 4000-watt set) for
two hours at least once every four weeks. A long two-hour exercise period is
preferable to several short periods.
• Power decreases in extreme temperatures by 1% for each 10°F (5.5°c) above 85°F.
NOTE: The carburetor on a non-EFI gasoline generator may require adjustment at
high altitudes. (See your Operator’s Manual or your Onan Authorized RV Service
and Parts Dealer.)

PREVENTING SURGING
The electrical supply (voltage and frequency) for any appliance must be kept
within very close limits for it to work properly. Changes in the electrical supply
(called surging) can damage the appliances in your RV. Proper care of your
generator will enable it to supply a stable power source and prevent surging.
RV generators control engine speed with a governing system. Most generators
have a mechanical governor, although the latest OnanВ® Marquis Platinum and
Quiet Diesel generators use an electronic governor. Without a governor, as
appliances are turned on, engine speed simply drops until the generator finally
stops running. With a governor, the carburetor throttle opens to compensate for
load, to maintain a constant speed.
The governor works in careful balance with the generator engine, fuel system,
regulator and generator. If the balance is upset, surging may result.
A variety of things can cause surging, including an inadequate fuel supply, lack of
exercise, and poor maintenance. (See the Troubleshooting Guide on page 26.)

Tips To Help Prevent Surging
• Be sure the generator has an adequate fuel supply. Fuel is drawn from a
remote fuel tank. With gasoline-fueled RVs, it’s usually the vehicle’s main fuel
tank. Typically the generator’s fuel pickup extends only 3/4 of the way to the
bottom of the tank — to keep you from being stranded at your campsite! So
just because you have fuel in the tank, you’re not guaranteed it’s getting to your
generator. (If you have two fuel tanks in your vehicle make sure both tanks are
full.) An inadequate fuel supply can also be caused by cracked/leaking fuel
lines or a defective fuel pump. Contact your local Onan Authorized RV
Service and Parts Dealer to have this checked out.
• Be sure to follow the generator exercise recommendations or the out-of-service
protection recommendations outlined in your Operator’s Manual. Gum and
varnish from stale fuel can plug small carburetor passages causing a lean
fuel mixture and surging. Treat the fuel system with Green Label Parts Premium
Fuel System Cleaner in the clean-up mode ratios. Contact your local Onan
Authorized RV Service and Parts Dealer to have the carburetor cleaned and
adjusted if the problem persists.
• On carbureted models, be sure carburetor, choke, and governor adjustments
are performed by your local Onan Authorized RV Service and Parts Dealer.
These adjustments can only be properly made using specialized instruments.
• Be sure ignition system components are in good condition.
• On carbureted models, with manual preheater control lever, be sure the
carburetor air pre-heater is in the proper position for temperature and humidity
at your location. The selector should be in the winter position if the temperature
is below 55В°F and/or the humidity is high.

III: GENERATOR CARE AND
MAINTENANCE
II: IMPORTANT SAFET Y PRECAUTIONS
FUNDAMENTAL SAFETY RULES
Please read your generator Operator’s Manual carefully so you understand all the
precautions for safe, efficient operation. Most accidents occur from failing to follow
fundamental safety rules. In general:
• Exhaust gas is deadly. Check all exhaust system connections regularly for
leaks and tighten them as necessary. Do NOT operate the generator with
a faulty exhaust system.
• If your RV bottoms out on a driveway or road object, inspect the generator
exhaust system for damage. The tail pipe must extend past the edge of
the vehicle.
• Always operate the generator in an area where the wind will carry away
the exhaust fumes.
• Never sleep with the generator running unless the RV is equipped with an
operating carbon monoxide detector.
• Don’t store anything, especially gas, oil, rags or other flammable materials,
in the generator compartment.
• Keep the exhaust and air intake free from obstructions such as clothing,
furniture or other material.
• Perform all service and maintenance work with the generator engine off and
the positive battery cable disconnected. Moving parts can cause severe
personal injury or death, and live wires could cause fatal electrocution.
• Backfeed to utility systems can create serious risks to life or property. Do not
connect to building electrical system except through approved device and
after building main breaker is opened.

GENERAL GENERATOR MAINTENANCE
An OnanВ® or Camp Powerв„ў RV generator is an investment that can bring you many
years of comfort and enjoyment. However, all generators require periodic maintenance
for dependable, ongoing performance. Your Operator’s Manual outlines the specific
maintenance procedures and service intervals for your particular model. If you take
good care of your generator, it will take good care of you.
RV maintenance is performed according to the number of miles you travel. Similarly,
generator maintenance is based on hours of running time. If your generator does not
come equipped with an hour meter, install one, and place it in an easy-to-see location
near the RV’s electrical control panel so you can keep track of the hours your generator
runs. The Onan deluxe remote control panel includes an hour meter. The following chart
shows the recommended maintenance intervals for Onan and Camp Power generators.
These are general guidelines only. Consult the Operator’s Manual for procedures and
maintenance intervals for a specific model. If you are unable to locate your Operator’s
Manual, many can be viewed online or purchased at Funroads.com.
• Maintenance charts are in all Operator’s Manuals.
• The Onan sets which offer electronic ignition feature longer maintenance intervals.
Onan offers a Retrofit Kit, called Magna Arc , for adding electronic ignition to pre1990 Emerald generators. Contact your local Onan Authorized RV Service and
Parts Dealer for more information.
• Check your generator exhaust system each time you start the generator. Make sure
it doesn’t leak and that it extends beyond the vehicle’s perimeter.
• Refer to manual for service intervals for injectors and valve adjustments typically
500-1,000 hours.

DO’S AND DON’TS FOR BETTER GENERATOR
PERFORMANCE
CAMP POWERв„ў SERVICE POINT DIAGRAMS
Camp Power 2800
The Do’s:
• DO keep your generator clean by wiping it periodically with a clean cloth.
• DO turn off all appliances in cold weather before starting your generator, for
best long-term performance.
• DO check owners manual for periodic maintenance schedule.
• DO check the exhaust system regularly for damage or leaks. Make sure the
exhaust pipe extends out at least one inch beyond the vehicle perimeter.
• DO check the carburetor pre-heating selector (if one is installed) to be sure it’s in
the proper position for the surrounding climate. (See your Operator’s Manual for
proper settings.)*
• DO check the air filter periodically and clean it by tapping it on a flat surface.
Never wash it in solvents or blow it out with an air hose.
• DO install a running hour meter so you know when scheduled maintenance
service is due.
• DO exercise your generator regularly.
• To maintain the LPG fuel filter, purge the fuel system following the procedures listed
in the Operator’s Manual.
• On diesel models, DO make sure that clean fuel, the most important factor for
proper generator performance, is used. Refer to the fuel recommendations
covered on page 23.
• DO make sure each operator is familiar with the important safety precautions listed
on page 12.
• DO change your fuel filter. The fuel filter is an often forgotten part of any engine.
Your generator has one too. It removes bits of debris from the fuel to prevent
clogging the carburetor jets. Over time, the fuel filter collects enough material to
become plugged, which restricts fuel flow and reduces the generator’s power
delivery. So be sure to change the fuel filter on a regular maintenance schedule.
Camp Power 4000
The Don’ts:
• DON’T run the generator for long periods of time without using it to power
appliances. It wastes fuel and may cause the engine to misfire.
• DON’T attempt to adjust the carburetor, governor, choke, etc., yourself. See your
OnanВ® Authorized RV Service and Parts Dealer for assistance.
• DON’T attempt to adjust EFI components on the Marquis Platinum.™
* IMPORTANT: Information applies only to carbureted models.

KEEP YOUR GENERATOR CLEAN AND
INSPECTED FOR DAMAGE
Quiet Dieselв„ў 7500/8000
Your RV generator is a hardworking device that lives in an unfriendly environment,
typically in the underside of your RV. Dust and debris are a part of its daily life. Dust
can clog the intake system and reduce its engine’s efficiency. Remember to replace
air and oil filters regularly to remove dust. Over time, vibration from rough roads can
loosen generator parts; and debris thrown up from the road can occasionally
damage fuel lines and exhaust systems. It makes good sense to inspect all these items
regularly. Do not use a water hose or high pressure car wash type sprayers on the
generator. Light air pressure is preferred.
FUEL RECOMMENDATIONS
Gasoline Generators — Treat the engine of your Onan
В®
or Camp Powerв„ў
generator to a good grade of regular unleaded gasoline and it’ll purr in response.
Gasohol (gasoline blended with alcohol) can be used if it contains the correct
additive mixture percentages:
• Ethanol Blend — Not more than 10% ethanol.
• Methanol Blend — Not more than 5% methanol and must also contain solvents
and corrosion inhibitors.
LPG Generators — Use clean, HD-5 grade liquid propane gas in a mixture
of at least 90% propane. Propane fuels other than HD-5 can contain more than 2.5
percent butane which can result in poor fuel vaporization and poor engine starting
in outside temperatures below 32В°F.
Diesel Generators — Use ASTM-2-D (No. 2 Diesel) or ASTM-1-D (No. 1
Diesel) fuel with a minimum Cetane number of 45. No. 2 diesel fuel gives the best
economy and performance under most operating conditions. Use No. 1 diesel fuel
when ambient temperatures are below 32В°F and during long periods of light engine
load. Use low sulfur content fuel having a cloud point of at least 10В°F below the
lowest expected fuel temperature. Cloud point is the temperature at which wax
crystals begin to form in diesel fuel.
Quiet Diesel 10000/12500
NOTE: Fill up with fresh gas! The single most common service issue is stale or
contaminated fuel. Always use fresh gas! The gas should not be more than 30 days
old. Fuel stabilizer extends the life of your fuel. Stale fuel clean-out is not covered
under your warranty.

A WORD ABOUT OIL
Viscosity Grades
Use a premium quality engine oil (such as OnaMaxв„ў SAE-30 and SAE 15W- 40) in
the correct oil viscosity for your generator’s typical operating temperature range to
provide optimum engine service. Avoid mixing different grades or brands.
It’s good practice to check the oil level daily, or every 8 hours of operating time.
Keep the oil level as near as possible to full, but do not overfill. Overfilling may cause
foaming and engine shutdown. Replace the cap tightly to avoid leakage. And if your
generator has an oil filter, change it when you change the oil.
Do NOT check the oil level while the generator is running, because hot oil can be
thrown out of the dipstick hole, causing severe burns.
Gasoline Engine Oil Quality — Use oils meeting API performance categories SH/CE,
SH/CD, SH, SJ, SJ/CE or SJ/CD.
Diesel Engine Oil Quality — Use oils meeting API performance categories CG-4,
CF-4, CE/SG or CD/SG.
Oil Viscosities — Use the following information to select correct viscosity grades for
expected ambient temperature range.

NOTE: Multi-grade oils (such as SAE 15W- 40) are recommended for year-round use
in OnanВ® liquid-cooled engines, or as a good all-season oil for air-cooled engines.
NOTE: SAE-30 is the preferred summer grade for optimum oil consumption control in
Onan air-cooled engines.
PREVENT FUEL VARNISHING
If You Don’t Run A Tank Of Gas A Month, You Could Be
Risking The Performance Of Your RV Generator.
If you store your RV over the winter, or don’t operate it often enough to refuel the gas
tank every month, you could develop a fuel varnishing problem in your engine —
particularly in your generator.
Fuel varnishing is a gummy residue that clogs the generator carburetor and fuel
pump. It’s caused by the deterioration of fuel that sits in the engine too long, and it
happens in a surprisingly short period of time. Depending on fuel quality and storage
conditions, gasoline can deteriorate in as little as 30 days. As long as you refuel
frequently with fresh gasoline, and exercise the unit regularly, fuel varnishing is less
likely to occur. But if you leave the same gasoline in the tank for several months,
you’re very likely to have problems.
Fuel varnishing affects many engines, but it’s more noticeable in generators because
the engines are smaller. Even the slightest decrease in efficiency has a big impact
on performance. A generator with varnish buildup may start, but runs like it needs
a tune-up. It surges, accelerating and decelerating, but never settling on a stable
operating speed.
In many of the gasoline powered units, engine speed directly affects generator
voltage output and frequency. As speed increases/decreases, so does the voltage
and frequency.
The only ways to prevent fuel varnishing are to treat the contents of the tank supplying
fuel to the generator with a fuel preservative and to exercise the set. Onan has
developed a fuel preservative and stabilizer, OnaFresh,в„ў specifically formulated for
Onan and Camp Powerв„ў generators. We recommend adding this preservative to the
fuel, especially on infrequently used RVs.
Emptying the tank won’t prevent fuel varnishing because a small amount of fuel
always remains in the generator carburetor. If you plan to leave the tank empty, we
recommend that you add a special mixture of fuel and a preservative before you run
the tank dry so the residual fuel contains the preservative.
Once varnishing has occurred, adding a preservative won’t correct the problem.
You need to add a fuel cleaner, or manually scrape the varnish from the fuel system
parts. Onan offers Premium Fuel System Cleaner for use with Onan and Camp
Power generators.
By understanding how to properly care for your RV generator and protect against
fuel varnishing, you’ll enjoy better performance and longer, service-free operation.
It may seem strange that “not” using a product causes it to break down faster. With
generators, though, that’s exactly the case.
Premium Fuel System Cleaner and OnaFresh, along with other Green Label Partsв„ў
maintenance products can be found at your local Onan Authorized RV Service and
Parts Dealer. To locate your nearest dealer, visit Funroads.com.
IMPORTANT: Problems caused by fuel varnishing will not be covered under warranty.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Under normal operating conditions, you can expect your OnanВ® or Camp Powerв„ў
generator to perform reliably without any problems. But if a problem does occur you
may be able to isolate the cause by using the following troubleshooting chart.
If you cannot discover and correct the problem, make a note of your generator model
and serial numbers and contact your local Onan Authorized RV Service and Parts
Dealer. Quiet Dieselв„ў generators have a unique control system. Consult your Quiet

IV: GENERATOR MAINTENANCE:
PARTS AND CHEMICALS
INSIST ON THE QUALITY OF GREEN LABEL PARTS
Insist on Green Label Parts. Genuine Onan. These replacement and maintenance
products have been specially designed by Onan for RV generator use to provide
you with dependable power and performance for the life of your generator. They are
available from all Onan Authorized RV Service and Parts Dealers. Maintenance parts
can also be ordered online at Funroadsв„ў.com. See pages 30-33 for part numbers
by set.
Air Filters
Green Label Parts air filters are designed with a special foam pre-cleaner, for use
specifically in RV generators. Other manufacturers’ air filters may contain a lighter
density filter paper and the sealing surfaces may get hard and crack over time,
allowing dirty air into the engine intake system. Over time, it only takes about a
thimbleful of dirt to wear out piston rings and cylinders. (Replacement filters for some
older models may not include the pre-cleaner.)
WARNING! Incorrect troubleshooting procedures can result in risks of
property damage, or death from fire, explosion, electrocution, and
asphyxiation or being caught or hit by moving parts. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TROUBLESHOOTING unless you are trained and experienced in electrical
and mechanical maintenance.

Green Label Partsв„ў spark plugs come gapped correctly from the factory for your RV
generator engine. Spark plugs purchased from other sources come gapped for
automotive engines, which are gapped much larger. When regapping, the ground
strap must be bent and it may not cover all of the electrode, which will reduce
spark plug life.
TM
Oil Filters
Green Label Parts oil filters feature valves that allow oil to bypass the oil filter during
cold starts, or if the filter becomes plugged. Other manufacturers’ oil filters often do
not have bypass valves. As these “will-fit” filters trap debris, oil pressure starvation can
occur, leading to high oil pressures, failed gaskets and even engine damage. Other
“will-fit” oil filters do contain bypass valves but they do not determine at what PSI the
valve opens. If the setting is too high, the filter’s paper element can be damaged
during a cold start rendering it useless, or cause oil starvation to the engine.
Factory recommended and tested,
maximum protection engine oil formulated
to reduce consumption and engine wear
due to high temperature oil oxidation and
viscosity increase. One-quart bottle.

Q:
A:
Q:
A:
Is generator power clean enough to run a computer?
Yes, with OnanВ® and Camp Powerв„ў generators this is no problem. The set
should be turned on and warmed up before turning on the computer. The
normal precautions for home use should be followed for RV use as well.
Q:
Can I operate an air conditioner and microwave at the
same time?
Although this is possible in lower temperatures or altitudes or with high
efficiency AC’s, Onan and Camp Power 2500 and 2800 watt generators
will probably be overloaded when the AC cycles off and on with the
microwave running. Load shedding devices are available that automatically
turn off the AC when the microwave starts and then restarts it when power
is available again. All other Onan and Camp Power generators can
operate both of these appliances at the same time.
A:
VII: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q:
A:
Can a generator charge my RV house battery?
Not directly. But a generator does provide power to operate your
converter/charger, which charges batteries. Many diesel generators
also have an alternator, which can charge batteries.
Q:
Is it practical to power the roof air conditioner with my
generator while traveling on the road?
Yes, that is what a generator is for, portable electrical power. In fact, it can
help you economize on your vehicle fuel because the generator uses less
fuel. Plus, it gives you an opportunity to exercise your generator. Any
appliance that can be run in a stationary position can also be powered
while driving.
A:
Q:
A:
Can I run my generator for extra power while I’m hooked
up to shore power at a campground?
Only if the RV manufacturer has supplied a separate circuit for a second
air conditioner. However, in most RVs with two air conditioners, only one
will operate while plugged into commercial shore power. By the NFPA
code you cannot connect both power sources, generator power and
commercial shore power, together. RV electrical systems are designed to
separate these two power sources. However, with your comfort and needs
in mind, your RV manufacturer may have wired the RV to allow you to
power your second air conditioner with your RV generator. Check your
vehicle’s operator manual.
56
Why does a breaker trip and the rear air conditioner not
work when I turn it on while the generator is running?
RVs with two air conditioners typically have a 20-amp circuit breaker for the
rear air conditioner and a 30-amp breaker for all other loads (including the
front air conditioner). The RV may be wired with the two circuits reversed,
causing the breaker to trip. The generator connections and wiring should
be checked by an authorized service location.
Q:
A:
Will high efficiency (power saver) air conditioners provide
more reserve power?
YES. High efficiency AC’s use 30% less power and are easier to start. That
means more power is available for use in the RV or for better fuel economy.
High efficiency AC’s also have higher cooling output than comparable
standard AC’s.
Q:
A:
What happens if I “short-cycle” my air conditioner?
Short cycling refers to stopping and restarting the air conditioner
compressor before the refrigerant pressure has enough time to equalize.
If this happens, one of several things can occur: a circuit breaker may trip,
either on the generator or at the breaker panel; the generator engine may
stall; the AC compressor may trip its overload. AC compressors should
remain off for at least 3 minutes before being restarted.
Q:
Will increasing the speed (accelerating the RPM) on my
generator provide more power potential?
No, and it may damage your generator and appliances.
A:
57
Q:
A:
Can I run an RV generator in a National Park?
Yes. OnanВ® and Camp Powerв„ў installed generators are quieter than the
National Park sound level requirements. (During allowable hours of use.)
Q:
What is carburetor icing? What conditions cause it? How can
it be prevented?
Carburetor icing occurs in damp, cool outside conditions, causing rough
operation, stalling and throttle sticking. If your generator is equipped with a
summer/winter lever, operate the generator in the “winter” position in humid
temperatures of 55°F or less. This will pre-heat the intake air so ice won’t
form in the carburetor.
A:
Q:
A:
Q:
A:
Once the generator is started, should it continue to run for a
certain length of time?
Ideally, Onan and Camp Power generators should run for a minimum of 30
minutes to give them a chance to warm up. Once warmed up, running your
generator for five-minute intervals should be fine. But remember to turn on
some appliances so the generator works while it’s running. Running it for
more than 30 minutes at no load only burns fuel unnecessarily and adds
costly maintenance.
How are “will-fit” generator replacement parts different
from Green Label Partsв„ў?
Onan genuine Green Label Partsв„ў are tested and designed specifically for
RV applications. Will-fit parts and gaskets can be the correct shape, but
because of inadequate design, the wrong material, or poor quality, they
could cause premature failure, leakage or performance problems. Use of
some non-Onan replacement engine parts may affect the unit’s emissions
certification, and damage caused by use of oil and air filters other than
Green Label Parts is not covered under your generator warranty.
Q:
A:
Q:
A:
A:
How often should I perform maintenance on my generator?
Will doing it myself affect my warranty?
The Operator’s Manual that accompanies each generator outlines proper
maintenance procedures and intervals. If you follow the procedures
correctly, warranty coverage remains intact. However, proper maintenance
will obviously affect warranty coverage. For more information, see the
Maintenance Intervals charts on page 15.
58
Should I use straight 30-weight oil or is the multi-viscosity oil I
use in my vehicle okay?
, the
For best generator performance, we recommend you use OnaMaxв„ў
Green Label Parts oil specifically formulated for RV generators. However,
you can use the same oil you use in your vehicle engine provided it meets
or exceeds SG/CE API specifications. To get you off to a good start,
all new Onan and Camp Power generators are factory prepared with
OnaMax 15W-40 oil.
Q:
A:
Will high-octane gasoline reduce the amount of fuel varnish?
No, because varnish is a form of fuel degradation that is not a function of
octane level. Rather, it is a function of fuel quality, age and additive treatment.
High-octane fuel without stabilizer additive will oxidize or varnish at a faster
rate than fuel treated with a fuel stabilizer.
Q:
When I’m checking my oil, does the dipstick need to be
screwed in all the way?
In order to get the correct oil level reading, the dipstick must be screwed in
completely on all models with a screw-type dipstick, except for the 2800 and
2500 MicroLiteв„ў and Camp Power models; it sits on top of the fill tube. Make
sure the vehicle is level when checking oil level.
A:
Q:
A:
Q:
How frequently should I change oil if I won’t be using the
generator for several months?
Typically just like a car, change oil for seasonal temperature
changes. For long storage, see your Operator’s Manual for
extended out-of-service protection.
Q:
A:
Do diesel generators need exercising like gasoline
generators?
Yes, it helps lubricate the seals and engine components and keeps carbon
from building up. Regular exercise also heats up the generator windings and
removes or expels excess moisture. In sets equipped with brushes, exercising
helps prevent corrosion build up on the slip rings.
How do I keep mice/rodents out of my generator
during storage?
Use rodent prevention techniques around the generator/compartment just as
you would with any other area of your RV.
59
Q:
A:
Q:
A:
Should I get an LP or a diesel generator for my diesel
motorhome? What are the differences?
Each fuel option has its own advantages. LP generators generally have a
lower initial cost than diesel units. Plus, they’re smaller and lighter weight,
allowing for more flexibility in the floor plan of large RVs. LP generators also
have less exhaust fume smell. Diesel generators have a much longer engine
life. They consume less fuel, and diesel fuel usually costs less than LP, which
brings additional savings. A diesel generator gives you a common fuel
system, and the convenience of operating your generator from the vehicle’s
main fuel supply. The generator best for you depends on how you use it
and your own personal preferences.
How is LP fuel supplied to my generator?
LP fuel is stored in the fuel tank in liquid form with some vapor at the top of
the tank at relatively high pressure. The pressure in the tank is determined by
the ambient (outdoor) temperature. The higher the temperature the higher
the pressure. Ambient heat vaporizes fuel until the pressure won’t allow any
more liquid to vaporize. The tank pressure will be about 200 psi at 110В°F,
70 psi at 40В°F, and 0 psi at -40В°F.
In order for the fuel to be burned at a controlled rate in the generator (or
any other appliance) it must be converted to a vapor form and supplied at
a controlled pressure.
LP fuel systems for many OnanВ® generators are available in two forms,
vapor withdrawal and liquid withdrawal.
Q:
A:
What are the advantages of each type of LP fuel system?
LP Vapor Withdrawal
• Simpler system for the generator set.
• Same low-pressure vapor system as other appliances.
LP Liquid Withdrawal
• Better operation in cold temperatures.
• Complete vaporization pressure regulation system is on
the generator from the factory.
Q:
A:
Can LP fuel plug up the regulator?
The most common contaminants found in LP fuel are the oils from the LP
pumping facility. The oil is removed from LP fuel at the location the fuel
vaporizes. In liquid withdrawal LP fuel systems, this occurs in the regulator.
Oil contaminants can then clog the regulator. The Marquis Platinumв„ў,
Marquis Goldв„ў and Emerald Advantageв„ў liquid withdrawal LP fuel systems
provide a drain for oil removal. See your Onan Authorized RV Service and
Parts Dealer for assistance.
Q:
Can I use the Camp Power 4000, MicroQuiet 4000 or
Emerald 4000 generator to run two air conditioners?
No.
A:
Q:
Q:
A:
What is the difference between LP Vapor and LP Liquid
Fuel Systems?
LP Vapor Withdrawal — With a vapor withdrawal system, the LP fuel is
vaporized in the fuel tank by heat input from the environment. The pressure
is reduced to about 11-inches of water column (0.4 psi) at the tank outlet
with a regulator. The vaporized LP fuel flows to the demand regulator on
the generator, which reduces the pressure before it enters the carburetor.
LP Liquid Withdrawal — With a liquid withdrawal system, liquid LP fuel flows
at tank pressure to the generator where heat from the generator converts
the fuel from liquid to vapor form. A two-stage regulator reduces fuel
pressure before it enters the carburetor.
60
A:
Q:
A:
Will the starter motor continue to be engaged if the start
button is held too long?
All Onan and Camp Powerв„ў generators are equipped with a start
disconnect feature which will not allow the starter to crank once the
generator is producing electrical output.
Why don’t I have as much power as I think I should?
Battery chargers run as “invisible” loads, and can draw as much power as
two air conditioners, depending on size. This can continue for several hours,
depending on battery charger and battery bank size.

A:
How many appliances can I operate with my Camp Power
2800 or 2500 LP generator?
The Camp Power 2800 can run a 13500 BTU air conditioner with
600-watts of power in reserve. In most trailers and truck campers, that is
enough reserve to operate the DC converter (for TV, lights, fans, battery
charger) in addition to the air conditioner. The 2500 LP model has slightly
less reserve but still enough power for an air conditioner plus converter
loads. With the AC off, both Camp Power generators can operate any
mix of standard RV appliances (i.e. microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer,
etc.) up to the rated capacity.

Just because riding an ATV or kayaking or whatever takes you out of the city, there’s no reason
to leave civilization. Get an OnanВ® generator and bring the comforts of home with you. Onan is
the generator of choice for top RV manufacturers. They’re quiet, reliable and built especially
for RVs. Like Outlet BoyTM always says, “Extreme sports is one thing, extreme discomfort is
something else.” Power up the adventure with Onan. Check out www.funroads.com/powerup
