One final check, disconnect the battery feed from the generator and then jump it to see if it will start. Sometimes the battery draw is too substantial to allow the juice to get to the appliance.

Also, at 6.5 volts, it sounds like only one battery is connected to the genset. Check your connection at the battery end to see if the positive/negative feeds are off two separate batteries that are jumpered.

Thanks r2dillon,

Rechecked the works, now have proper voltage at generator - but still no start. Googled the fault code and found a number of folks out there who had the same issue - turns out it is the controller or inverter in the generator. Called Cummings Onan and the unit is still under warranty -- until 18 Dec - made that one just under the wire - and glad since the controller is $800 plus labor. Will get this fixed next week and then Happy Trails!

Thanks again for all the ideas and support from this forum - I'll be around and hope I too can help others.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
