Vegas 24.1 Generator issue

Hi there, generator is starting but not making power. We actually had same issue 2 yrs ago and had the brushes replaced in the generator... we only used it a few times since for short periods. guess we have to go back to get it checked out, but was wondering if anyone had any other thoughts here. Bad timing because we have to boondock tonight thanks.

As an FYI that generator needs to be "exercised" on a regular basis. I was told to run the genny with a load, a/c, or other 120 volt appliances on once a month for a minimum of half an hour to keep the genny from loosing magmatism. If the generator fields loose magnatism the unit won't produce electricity. In addition with the crappy alcohol based fuel we use today the carburetor will get gunmed up if the fuel in the bowl doesn't get "rinsed" every so often.
