Hello all...new member here. My Onan Marquis 7000 gas generator stalls when I go over speed bumps or large bumps on the highway. I have checked fluids and for loose connections as best I can, but have had no luck. My coach is 2 yrs old and has had this problem since new. No help from my local dealer thus far. Thanks in advance.

When I first got my coach the generator did the same thing. my solution was to drop the float, checking to make sure the float still works! Mine was metal so I made sure it wasn't full of gas! mine has not done it since! Good luck and welcome to the forum!

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
