Thanks to all that replied. I will look and see if there is a prime switch. It is a generac 4000 gardian. Scotty. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Scotty, we have a generac and had problems starting it. We had it checked and found out the oil was low. Art checked it and thought it was fine but it was not. The guy showed him how to check it (which somehow is different than a car)and said it is a safety to not start or be hard to start when the oil is low.

Went to the National RV Rally in Temecula and had the techs look at it. There is a switch on the generator for summer to winter and it was set for summer. They readjusted it.

Also to start, hold down the stop button for about 5 secs, if it doesn't start, do it again. It will start (except for low oil).

Works great now!
