I am reading this w/ interest. We have the Onan 4 and had major trouble w/ it this weekend. In fact, the only reason I am here typing is because it was too flippin hot in Jawbone to stay w/o air conditioning.

We don't have a WW, but rather a KZ. We haven't talked to the KZ dealer yet. We have an appt for Wed to have an additional bed installed and figured we'd complain then.

The generator would work sporadically then kick off. It took a lot to get it started, then it would run for a few hours and kick off. After the third day, it wouldn't even kick on.

Interesting that our fuel station kept blowing fuses, though. We thought it might be all tied in. Hmmmmm

JAguirre That is exactly the symptoms my gen had and quit just like yours did. I bet $100.00 you have a bad fuel pump. I put the new one in and it fired right up. I have not had it out to test it for hours and hours but I bought a spare just in case for the reason you came home.

Thanks Griz - it's good to know. I don't know if my DH is capable of installing a fuel pump (shhhh -- he's not listening), so ... that being said, is this something I bring up to the dealer or do I need to bring it up to a Onan Service dept.

The generator is under warranty -- it's the pita time factor that I am worried about.

Definitely tell the dealer. I would call first incase for some strange reason he doesn't have one he can get one before you arrive with the trailer. Also it's real easy to remove and install, two small bolts and two hose clamps. Your DH would have no problems. I think it would be good to know as many of these pumps that have been going bad you never know when you might have to change one yourself.

Don, I really do think anyone having a problem should be in contact with Cummings/Onan so they can get it corrected. Don't expect WW or Giant or any other dealer to be much concerned. Personally I feel it is a fuel supply issue, on Warriors any way. Even though I have not experienced any problems I did track the fuel hose from the tank to the genset. It makes 2 sharp 90 degree turns and in one spot the nylon tie is so tight it crimps the hose. Is there kinking involved?? Also is 1/4"id hose adequate for such a long draw. Also Onan told me the pumps are vendor supplied and as such an after market replacement will suffice. Carrying a spare is a good idea.

Dave:

I couldn't agree more...go straight to the MFR- even if it;s warranty issue, because I've seen some posts here and there where people have too much of a tendency to think it's a WW thing or a Raptor thing, or whatever...Onan will be the first to know if their gensets are having problems, and will pressure the OEM to get it fixed. All the OEM will do it hide their error.

If I happen to have any fuel supply problems, the first thing I will do is change out the fuel line and put at least a 3/8" line in- the pump may have to be working too hard to suck that fuel through the line for, say, 30 feet. Heck...may just change it out before, but I'm alot behind in all my 56 Mods...just got the sewer line one done tonight!

Geeezz...so much to do!!

Sean
