Genset breaker trips while driving - not running!
Onan Microlite 4000 Generator. 1999 Class A
While driving, particularly on rougher roads (you know, your typical interstate nowadays!), my generator breaker self trips to the off position. The generator is not running. The next time I go to run it, I have to remove the cover and reset the breaker. It runs fine and the breaker has never tripped while stationary.
My take is that the bouncing around on the road simply trips the breaker as it is certainly not any kind of overload condition. Soooo ...
* Do folks think the breaker is simply "sensitive" to vibration and bumps? Like the spring inside is weak.
* Does it seem like it an age issue? I've had household breakers fail and become sensitive but that was mostly from folks using them over and over again as switches.
* Is it worth my while to change the breaker when electrically, it seems fine and is working as designed?
* If I decide on the latter - what am I getting myself into?
