Glad to have you here with us.

What are you referring to when you say a plumbing module?

On your genset check the fuel level. Most generators will not run if you have less then 1/4 tank. Check to see if the filters are plugged.

Good luck!

It would be helpful to know what is not working on the plumbing.

First welcome to the Forum. As to the Plumbing module, I am so sorry but I have no idea. You may have to take the generator in for service or do your self. Not starting could be a lot of things. You might want to start with the fuel filter. Once you finally get it running, be sure to execise the generator monthly under a heavy load for about 30-45 minutes.

One other thought, You do have to hold the start button inside your rig, for the generator for a count of up to 15 seconds. If you don't hear the click, click, click try doing same at the generator start button. Best of luck and let us know how you make out.

The Watts module is obsolete. You can try taking apart, it may just need to be cleaned from setting so long. A member rebuilt his manifold, turned out very nice. This link shows how he rebuilt his manifold. He didn't have the Watts module but it will still work for you.
