1990 Pace Arrow Gen question

Is it possible to start the generator manually.... AKA all batteries are dead?

No, it has an starter similar to like your car- needs the battery to spin it.

If you can access where the cable from the battery comes in to the gennie, you could probably hook up a jumper cable from a charger or good battery. It doesn't take much juice to start the generator.

Dito on what senior chief said. You may need to let the other vehicle run hooked up to the genny connections for several minutes before it turns over good enough.

Have you tried starting your coach? I have had my house batteries too low while dry camping to start generator. So I started the coach and let it run a couple of minutes and then turned the generator over. As you can see by my sig I have an older coach.

Good Luck
Arnold
