Update; Well, the primary problem was a simple fuse. But then, after the GenSet was up and running for a while, the tech noticed an electrical smell that wasn't right. The starter was disintegrating ($124.28). The start/stop button had started occasionally hanging up, so we opted to replace the Control Board ($248.22). Everything looked and sounded good. Twenty minutes later, everything came to a stop. The fuel pump had failed ($108.12). I had the carb replaced by Onan a few months back and this tech fine tuned it to run smoother than ever before.

The repairs were more extensive than I planned, but I don't feel too bad considering that this thing had been chugging along for 20 years on original equipment. All things considered, I'm pleased and expect many more years of operation. If anybody needs a good mobile generator tech in the North Florida area, I'll be happy to recommend one.

Tomorrow, we go camping to celebrate!

Enjoying the simple life w/a 1994 Winnebago Brave 31RQ (A). Past RVs; RoadTrek (B), Starcraft Pop-up, Coachmen (C), MinnieWinnie (C) and an American Something-or-other (TT). Started it all off as a teenager in a 1964 Apache Pop-up we named Wag Along.

You also mentioned a blown tire,, Well known for tearing up wiring, you might look in the wheel well to see if there was secondary damage.

Beyond that,, I am out of easy fixes.

Home is where I park it!
