.filled tank about month ago. V-10 runs fine. Took a short trip over last weekend and genny worked fine. Just a problem since I changed oil today.
Thanks to you both of your assistance.
A couple of other ideas, cummins very old fashioned with lube oil, they have always stated use 30 wt. If temps predominent over freezing, also the book states error codes indicate after a fault shutdown, not after a failed start. I like you now can rule out fuel, not because the big guy will run, becaue the Onan has run. Ford engine much less susceptible to stale gas.
One more test you can try- IGN spark test. If you borrow a "Timing light", you can hook to a plug wire and insue you have ignition at the plugs. This second common source of failure bad electronics. Other way ti check, hold one pluf clese in dim light.
