Generator stalls when going around bend

I have a Gererac q55g in my MH and sometime when I go around a bend (like an on ramp) the generator will stall. It starts right up again but the tv and sat reset (to the annoyance of my 8 year old.)

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Dave

Keep the fuel tank full or go around corners slower?

Good thought. Had 75 gals of gas in tank(full) and got on to NYS thruway doing about 20mph and it stalled. The first time it happened I had only 1/2 tank and I thought the same thing.

Sounds like the float level in the carb on the genset is set to low.

How old is your coach? On our 92 Allegro the issue was a dry rotted fuel pickup line. Corners and sometimes large bumps would kill the generator. Had to drop the tank and replace the rubber hose. No issues after that.

It is a 2000 Monaco La Palma. I will have to look.

Check the oil level also If oil gets low it will turn off. Could be turning corner lowers the oil level at the sending unit.

Wow... and here I was thinking, thats strange, I've never run my generator while traveling. Guess I'm a mean mom, I make my kid enjoy the beautiful scenery.

You must be more tolerant of hot weather. Being conditioned to Alaska weather, I run my generator while driving almost anywhere in the lower 48 during the summer to power the air conditioning units.

Besides if I can't watch TV no one is going to watch TV

Too funny by half!

Here in Southern Oregon/Nor-Cal the average day time temp will be at least 85 degrees from early July on, frequently (Nor-Cal) 100+. No way the dash board A/C will even make a 'dent' on all that hot air. One trip last summer (Redding, CA for fishing the upper Sac) the out side temp was 110 (no kidding!) and 120 inside.

Had to pull in both slides (to reduce air volume to be cooled) and even running both A/C units the 'coolest' I could get her down to was a tad over 90.

Yuck, but as we like to say .... "A dry heat." Humidity/temp have a reverse relationship. One goes up, the other goes down. And that's a 'Good Thing!'
