Ok, If I see anything in the manual I will PM you, but unplugging the switch harness at the gen is a good start.

Well, finally brought my kohler home last week completely disassembled.(in a box). Have the "wrong" new camshaft but can't locate the original. By looking at the parts manual, seems that the new shaft has two lobes that are 180 degrees off while two are right on. Received no paperwork, (original mechanic does not work there anymore)so I have no idea what all went on. I am still looking for a camshaft 52 010 04 (if my memory serves me right) If I had the original, I know I could have make things work. All said and not quite done, I am out $2200 dollars, have an operational generator and a broken one, the repair facility got their $$$$, Keep your eyes and ears open, if nothing surfaces, check out e-bay, that may be a good place to purchase kohler gen parts!!! new and used!! The rest of the story has not yet been written, I am seeking a publisher as we speak! Thank all for your input and support. The generac runs fine. Time to go fishin or visit the coast for a couple of daze!

I did not read all the posts so if I am repeating anyones advice I apologize. I had the same problem with my Kohler 7.3 on our boat this summer. The fix was this, replace the contol board AND voltage regulator (it never hurts to do the spark pugs two). You may also need to replace the fuel pump as the control board will take sometimes that down. You might even need to repalce the LOP switch and certainly have some 10amp ceramic fuses on hand. I wont bore you with my two month long warranty (Kohler has a very good 5 year warranty) repair saga but if the mechanic had replaced the electronics first like I told him, Kohler would have never got a 2K warranty bill... good luck!

Hemi-- I had an '86 presidential just like yours' I kept it for 9 years. I sold it last year and upgraded to a '02 37' Mountair Aire (gasser). Mine was in outstanding shape like yours. I put the Banks exhaust system on it and a K&N air filter. The increase in power was dramatic. I also put a King Dome on it and two satellite receivers (we both like our TV- and almost always watch different programs), I am a news nut, the bride hates the news, etc. My big complaint was the brakes. You absolutely have to have a "brake buddy" to stop that rig towing a car(I had rebuilt the brakes completely and was amazed to find a Ford F-350 brake system on the tag axle). My Mount Aire has great brakes with the W - 22 Chassis. The 8.1 litter Vortac is amazing. The Holiday Rambler with the 3 speed, Hydra-Matic 400 never got more than 7-8 MPG. We love our new rig with two slide outs-- we had lots of good times and plenty of folks always telling me how nice the H-R was. Best of luck with it---- Max H

Aux man, thank you for your input, I pretty much did all the things you mentioned prior to taking it to the shop for warranty. Getting it back in a box leaves me with no idea, except I know I need a camshaft now. The unit is piled in a corner with all new parts.(minus correct cam) Have a great day

Would I be interested in selling it? Yes I would. I have over $800 in new parts and ailments, not to mention the original parts that were eroneously condemned. I also have the user,parts, and service manuals. Installation schematic and all paperwork since new. Will sell for $1000 cash and carry. I am about 5-6 hours from Spokane Washington.
