Check the generator manual for the oil viscosity and spec for the oil. Use the same or better spec and the proper viscosity oil. A supplier should be able to cross reference the manufacturers filter to another brand filter.

We have a 5.5 HGJAB-1038E Onan generator. Just changed my oil this weekend. It uses a 0122-0836 filter. I would suspect that yours uses the same filter, but could be wrong.

From what I found on the internet it shows the same part number that I have listed above:

Onan Genuine Factory Parts Tune Up Kit For RV Models Marquis HGJAB HGJAA HGJAC

Oil Filter Part Number 0122-836. I think I would call Onan, or maybe even Camping World to verify the part number.

For the oil my manual shows API CH-4, CG-4, or CF-4 (SJ/CH-4) 15W-40, or 10W-30 10W-40, depending on the expected ambient temperatures.

When putting the oil back in do it very slow or you will have oil all over the place.

Assuming from your post, you want to save $$ from buying the Onan parts, that's what we do. Take your filter P/N to Napa Auto, they have filters for most Onan Generators, cheaper than Onan. As a side note, buy your filter on their monthly 1/2 price filter Fridays--even greater savings. As for oil, check your manual for recommended specs for the temperature range you will be in.
