Generator or not?
Have my continuing project, '97 21' gulfstream MH (1.5 years of experience now) showing generator problems. It's a 1996 series NP40G generac. First problem was the coach AC unit would trip on thermal (compressor) when using gen power. While doing some further checks, found 130 VAC output when almost no load was present, dropped to 115V with at least 5 amp load. Then at no load generator motor speed began to fluctuate and sounding like it was about to throw the rod. I'm thinking the CCG control board is shot. But also thinking that it isn't much more than a boat anchor. Just back from a month long cross country trip and never used it. With the small size of the RV, the cab A/C is enough to keep us cool when driving, and we just don't dry camp. Always stay where there is at least electrical hook ups.
Still fairly new at this RV stuff, anyone have a reason I should repair/keep a generator? The only run time it gets is the monthly 1/2 hour health run.
