Background: we moved into site 13 (I thought it was site 12...) and in the first week lightning struck the tree a few feet in front of my coach. I found the radio antenna from the roof on the ground in front of the motorhome.
Today's question regards my Onan 8K quiet generator. We had to replace house batteries, chassis batteries were ok. But the status light is on ALL THE TIME, not just when warming up/starting the generator. According to the manual, that means the battery polarity is reversed. But the generator starts and runs fine. If the battery polarity was reversed, how could the generator start? Wouldn't the starter motor spin the wrong way?
Has anyone experienced this? We're full timers, working as a volunteer camp host at this point. We run the generator an hour or two every day. That it works is a blessing, but I'm quite concerned that it has a problem that will either mess it up or stop it from working.
Here's hoping that I'm missing something big and easy. Please help me figure this out.
