Friends, we were just on a 1800 mile trip to Alberta and BC.
2nd night at Wally in Hinton (ok it's West Park Mall) with over 100 other Boondockers we woke up, because a Generator wanted to start around 4:30 early in the morning. DW says: Did you want to start OUR Generator. Heck I'm in bed next to DW! How can I start the GEN up front, when in bed.
Of course now I'm up and go to the front to count our Boondocking friends in the Parking Lot. In a sudden I noticed the STOP light on the START/STOP switch. What is going on here. I have not touched anything! Why is that light on? and nothing else? Touch the switch for STOP and it will go OFF, but a few seconds later it's back on. I did nothing. OK, lets start the GEN and see. NOTHING happens. What is wrong? Light is blinking, but I was tooo sleepy to count. Lets see, if the GEN is still there?
Out I go and check the GEN. Red Light is on. Checked Oil Level. Above ADD. Well lets go to Wally after 8:00 AM and buy some Oil. I add a bit and go inside. In a sudden the GEN starts by itself (I was still in the door) and DW in bed. Dogs have no clue how to start the GEN. OK, leave the GEN running. Used the Coffee Maker. The GEN works for a few days until last morning (1 week later). The Generator starts just fine and runs for 10 - 30 seconds and shuts OFF without my command. Oil is OK. So - I'll phone tomorrow for an app. here at Western Cummins. I just do not like these little things (trouble) on our little Motorhome! It's a MUST for us. Need my coffee early in the morning! I know, I could boil water, but the Coffee Maker is sooo much easier.
Anybody of you came across something like this? Thanks for your input.
So - I would know, what to tell the Technician?
