Had to jump through all sorts of hoops, including calls to Generac and then AP Electric and then give serial # of unit to finally find out it needs 10W30 oil... Good grief.....

You're running different oil than the Cummins?

I run 15w40, same as the coach, but I only use the Berk in the spring summer months. That would be too thick of an oil for cold weather.
