Ace Life 2016 - here is a link to the Onan manual https://power.cummins.com/sites/defa.../F-1123-EN.pdf.

The blinking lights are actually the generator giving you a "fault code". Go to page 31 of the manual for how to interpret the codes.

Hope that helps.

Just downloaded manual, going to update you on findings, after I charge auxiliary battery very curious how it could discharge with generator running (going to pick up a battery tester) thanks

How full is your gas tank? The generators are set to stop running at about 1/4 tank so as not to leave you stranded.
