If your deck is too tall, could you cut the legs shorter so that your MH can stay on the ground?

BTW, NEVER raise your rear wheels off the ground. You could damage your jacks. Driving it up on suitable blocks is OK, but you might have to put additional blocks under the jacks to compensate for a longer reach needed for the jacks.

Welcome to the pack. sorry to hear about the genny. After reading all the text, it seems like there may be a fuel delivery trouble. U state the fresh batteries, plenty of fuel and it is turning over. It may just be a dirty filter or water in the filter frozen. I am not a lot help for your gasser since mine in diesel. Generally, on a gas gen, when you push the start switch, the fuel pump will run and when there is enough pressure, the starter will turn the unit over and it will start after a few seconds.

Did you try to put you request for help in the winnebago forum?

I am curious, you stated that all you get is clicking when you push to start. On mine there are 3 places to start the generator, the Intellitec Power panel, the dashboard, and locally at the generator. Did you try more than one start button? You could just have a bad momentary start button in the location where you are trying to start from.

LAGINOG: I have a '98 winne chieftain. And on the front dash - there's rocker switch labeled "Aux Batt". If this is in the OFF position - it isolates the coach batteries from the coach. Which means - no power to the start circuit of the aux generator. And all you'll get is a click click click when trying to start the genny. At least - that's the way it works on mine. Make sure the switch is pushed to the ON position.

Well....we did LOTS of research, including all of your suggestions. We still can't get the generator started. There's an ONAN place about 45 minutes from here. We called them & he thinks it's probably a bad wire or something since we already changed the batteries. Regardless, we're tired of messing with it & want to start camping soon. So....we're taking it down to ONAN & letting them handle it. He said it will probably be an easy fix for them (even though they charge 1 & 1/2 hours of labor for every job)!! But....at least it will be ready to go. Thank you all south for all if your help & suggestions!! You all make things so much easier for us Newbies with our foolish questions. Thanks again!!!
