Kohler generator 4ckm21-rv

Hello Again,
Thanks again to those who helpede with the fridge.
Moving on, next up is the generator.
When do you use the generator? Is question #1.
Question #2.
I tried to start it but it didn't seem to be getting any fuel. I found and removed the filter and confirmed, there was no gas coming through the fuel line at all. Is there a shut off or switch I should be looking for?
Any suggestions of what I should check first would be most appreciated.

Barb; could you add info about you RV to your "about me " section and consider setting up a " Signature Line " so members know exactly what you're working on.

The gen set fuel pick up doesn't extend to the bottom of the RV fuel tank , so first thing to check , is the fuel tank well over 1/3 full ?

Generator use depends on when/where you use the RV . I use the gen set to operate the coffee maker and microwave during lunch stops on the road . On rare occasions to power up the roof air conditioners during highway travel when the dash air can't keep up . Pretty much anytime you need a 120 volt system in the RV when not on shore power .

Thanks for that, I'll check it out. Might very well be below the fuel level.
I'll update the info on my unit too as I'm sure to have some more questions.
Thanks again
