The start position will produce the same "clicking" sound (fuel pump running) as the prime position until the starter engages.
I'll be sure to salt that 'VooDoo' solution into my
Memory bank :-). Thx. Only thing I can think of is that the running engine provides an active charge source to the system ?????

I started the engine when our generator would not start and tried to start the generator. Generator still would not crank.As I mentioned earlier, I ended up changing all 4 house batteries and generator started right up.

We have a 2000 Holiday Rambler with a propane 6500 Onan generator. It starts but will not run 110. We were told it could be the voltage regulator. I have tried to find one but not having any luck.
