Well,

After waiting two weeks for an appointment to have the broken fan belt replaced on my MH generator I finally called my brother and we tackled it on friday and saturday.

Pulled off the portion of the front cap in front of the generator, removed wires and fuel lines, and eventually got it out of the MH. (Impossible to access for repairs while mounted).

Getting the parts was fun also as the part numbers on a sticker on the side of the generator housing appear to all be Power Tech's numbers as they would not cross reference to anything at Napa parts store.

Finally went to the local (2 hours away) Kubota dealer and obtained everything but the two fan belts (doing an oil change and filter replacement as long as it was apart). Unfortunately, I needed the fan belts more then anything.

After treking to various parts stores I obtained the two belts and got back home. We put it together and test ran it (another story) and all was well!

Put it back into the MH and now it won't start.

Finally figured out that we had reversed the in / output fuel lines when installing it back in the MH.

All is now well with the world as I can at least take a few trips before winter and do some dry camping.

I would think that Newmar would put the gen set on a slide out tray so that maintenance would be a little more simple.

Thanks and kudos to LugNut for his reply in the Onan oil change thread regarding the spark arrestor.

The pipe was almost completely clogged and alot of black soot came out. I cleaned it and after getting everything back together and running the generator no longer makes the loud hissing noise it used to make...nice and quiet!

I think DSDP and above have a slide out tray for the generator. My DSDP does. Also in 05 CAT purchased PT as I recall.
