Moving GenSet Forward for Servicing

I feel pretty dumb, preparing to service my GenSet and finding I cannot get it to budge forward. The only release I know about if for the hood in
the right front compartment. Seems there has to be another release for
the GenSet. Would appreciate some help SAP...Thanks! Larry

Have you ever , had or seen, the gen set slide extended ?
Latch could be jammed, or in need of lubrication .

Why do you need to move it? The filters are accessed through a panel underneath and oil is added at the front. You do not need to access the rear.

My release on my Spartan is in the small compartment in front of left front wheel (tee handle).

Algoma/John...thanks for responding. You may/may not have the same GenSet as I do...10HDKCA. From the Operator's Manual is appears that the right side (driver's) panel is removed to access a number of items, oil filter, air filter housing, coolant pressure cap and fill opening, etc. If this is the case, the panel cannot be removed without moving the GenSet forward. ???

On our '02 DSDP 4090 on Spartan the release was under the "hood" in front of the drivers position. Small, black "T" handle. Pull to release and then slide the gen slide out. Our present rig has an electrically operated slide. I actually prefer the manual slide that the DSDP's had.

Skip426...I never had it out before. By the way, for all who responded, I
just found in the Newmar DutchStar Manual a brief reference to the GenSet. It notes that the GenSet DOES move on slides and that the slides must be unlocked before moving the GenSet...now to locate the lock/latch! Appreciate the help. Larry

Look in the upper left hand corner of Gen compartment under hood for a T handle.

X2 007. If you're on a Freightliner chassis, the upper left side of the Gen compartment, as you face it. That is to say, on the passenger side. If like on my DS, the T handle may be hiding behind several cable looms and heat/ac hoses.

Thanks, folks...now I know what to look for and where. Tomorrow I plan
to tackle it again, and hopefully, finish my servicing of the GenSet.

You are correct that I have the 8k Onan, not the 10k. I assumed they would be the same but was obviously wrong. Now I know why you have a slide and I don't. A few more months of this and you will be the DS expert

Our release is a lever located covering the control switch for moving the generator. The switch is located in the compartment below the drivers position.

Don't know if this is of any help but mine is just a simple over center latch under the front "bumper". Whole grill and gen set slides out.

Frightliner chase if that makes a difference.

good luck

The handle in the right front compartment only releases the hood. Once the hood is open and propped up, if you stand in front looking in, on the firewall, a little right of center, around eye level, you will see another T handle. Pull this to release the latch for the generator slideout. The generator and the lower fiberglass segment will all pull outward with very little strength required.

If you have trouble finding the T handle, let me know and I will take a photo for you.
