5K Onan generator issue
I have a 2018 ACE 29.4 that came with the 5K Onan generator..
Two options to start generator (1) switch inside the RV (2) switch on generator
The generator light intermittently blinks 3 times on both inside and outside switches.
Generator will start 100% from switch on generator. Light blinking or not. It runs and powers as advertised. I have run for extended periods without issue.
If the light is blinking, I get nothing from panel (doesnít attempt to start)
If the light is not blinking, it starts no issues.
If the light is blinking and the RV is started outside, I can turn it off from inside and then it will restart 1 time from inside (regardless of where it is turned off)
I serviced the generator a couple months ago (oil/air) hoping this would stop the blinking but it didnít work.
Camping World (I understand most folks opinion of CW but they are 10 minutes from my house) can not diagnose the problem. They are guessing a voltage issue.
Good news is the generator runs great and itís just an inconvenience to have to go outside to start it, but I shouldnít have to. Any ideas of something I can check myself. I have a volt/amp meter and a basic understanding of electrical work.
