Onan Emerald Plus

I have an Onan Emerald Plus RV Genset Model # 5BEGFA11579P . When I push the on switch I hear one click then nothing. I have 1/2 tank fresh gas . Oil was low on the stick full now. House batteries on trickle charge tested at 13.1 and same with cables leading to genie . The spark plugs are a yr old. I'm afraid to mess with the mother board so I moved on to the solenoid . I unplugged the small wires and used a screw driver to override the board and got 1 click . Continuity check was good and ohmmeter was around 2.8 ohms . Also both fuses are good . Circuit breakers are good . I want to move on to the coil but know to check it then starter . [ Don't know how to check it either ] . I also unplugged the oil pressure value with no results . Help Please John

I had the exact same problem with my generator, it turned out to be a bad starter.

Why would you move on to the coil if it wont even turn over?

I suspect your starter had crapped out on you

If the starter solenoid is sending 12v to the starter and its not turning over then your starter is bad
