Generally, the switch for the patio light on the drivers side is on the dash or electrical panel under the drivers window (if you have one). Makes sense since the services are on the drivers side, the light switch would be accessible to the driver while backing into a spot.

We are first time owners since February of this year and I have spent a lot of time finding out there are switches and outlets hid every where. The outside drivers side light for our 1990 Winnebago Cheiftain is located in the rear trunk where the shore power plug is located. Go figure?

The outside "porch" light on the driver side of my Winnebago is linked to the light in the water service bay ...the switch marked "light" powers both the bay light and the outside light, and the bay light also has a switch on the end of the fixture.

On a 92 look up on the wall behind the drivers head there should be a switch there for the driver's side outside light.

Our 2000 adventurer(rear queen bedroom, pass. side slide) has an outside light over the wet bay on the drivers side. I assume this is to help in the event you are hooking up or unhooking after dark. The switch is located beside the one for the overhead bedroom light.

Assuming electrical power is getting to the starter and starter is turning the engine over. Check fuel flow to carb. Change fuel filter. Check oil level (some small engines will not start or run with low oil level). Remove carb fuel bowl and clean it. It may have debris or water in the bowl. If you or a small engine repair friend have a spark checker check the plug (s) for blue spark. Hope this helps find the problem. (Yep. I do small engines.)

yes folks I have turned on pressed on every switch I can find in the coach and have raised the white flag of defeat will wait for one of the grand kids to show me how....... it always happens
generator just groans when I hit power so I assume there is a bad connection somewhere in the lines will crawl under this weekend and follow them and clean each connector and see what difference that makes if not off to the shop to get raped by the local dealers

I have a control panel that has my battery, slide out, all water tanks levels and there is a security light switch and that is the switch for my outside lights mid way down the coach on each side

You are probably correct about the grandkids. Hopefully you just have some corrosion on a cable end and you are able to get the genset going. On a 92 Allegro we picked up a few years ago I replaced the starter and got the Onan going. The issue was that it would die and you could not get it started again without priming the fuel line manually. Fuel pump was good. After a frustrating first trip I started tracing the fuel lines and found out that the rubber fuel pick-up line coming out of the top of the tank was cracked from age and depending on the temp and bouncing around the line would allow air to enter and kill the generator. Had to drop the tank to replace about 2 feet of hose. Of course this was after filling the tank. Maybe this feedback will help. Good luck and have fun on your first trip.
