Generator Noise

I have a 34 foot '96 Dolphin. The generator's mounts seen to have given out and are leaning to the rear. This causes the generator to contact the chassis and vibrates through the MH. I put a rubber pad where I thought it was hitting but that didn't work. Is there a way to raise the generator to get new mounts installed?

I have never done it but if I were to attempt replacing the mounts I would think a bottle jack and small piece of wood at one corner at a time would be a good place to start.

Ditto on jack, I would also replace all mounts and level generator, not sure if an unlevel gen set will oil properly.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Don't know anything about your particular genny installation, but I wouldn't think it would be a problem to jack up the rear to replace rubber mounts! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

First, I want to thank the responders. I looked in there again. I can get to the front ones and the rear ones I will figure out. Now where do I get new motor mounts. It is a GENERAC Q55G.

I found out they are not called "motor mounts". They are called "vibration mounts". I still haven't found a source for them yet.

I finally got a vibration mount out. Man they don't make it easy. Anyhow I now have to wait for Monday to make sure I'm getting the right one from the people you recommended. Thank you.
