Onan generator won't stay running by Richard
Post New Message I have an onan generator on my 1990 Bounder motorhome. Generator worked fine in August and a month later generator will run as long as start button is pressed, as soon as you let go of button generator stops running.
I have tried a new fuel filter, changed spark plugs and filled motorhome with fuel and changed oil. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks. Richard
