According to my onanistic operating manual, the little red light gives a blinking code as to what is wrong. It's in the back of the manual. Maybe this will help. Keep us informed.

I didn't mean to make you worried. Mine was out if warranty. Cummins did tell me that they except the the Good Sams insurance so I have that now. My $1600 repair would have cost me $250.

As far as the codes that the Onans blink. They are pretty generic and aren't much help sometimes. I can't remember the exact number mine gave but it was a fuel delivery problem according to the manual..... It was actually the control board had went out causing the genny to burn up all the brushes and ruin the armature.

Wow, that would look like a Morse coded message in red flashes couple pages long!

Ha ha! They just need to add one that is fast continuous blinking that stands for..."hey dummy, your genny is fried! Quit trying to start it!"

I think that's the code I'm getting! Not sure when it flashes this "code" but while I'm holding down the start switch it just blinks fast and repeatedly.

I think there was a thread on here elsewhere about the Onan gen fuel pump as well. Not having enough suction where it was located or something. I think there solution was an aux pump? Sorry if not accurate, recalling from memory...which is a tricky thing

Just an off chance, as it is essentially new, but ethanol gas is tough on small engines and the fuel in the line from the fuel tank to the generator never moves unless the generator is run. Try bleeding a cup or two from the fuel filter.

I'll find out something in the a.m. We are lucky to have a Cummins-Onan dealer/service center in town. They were able to get me right in. I'll let you know what they come up with.

Cool

I posted to another thread about a similiar problem I had going from Des Moines to Colorado Springs. I had to change the altitude adjustment on the front. Not sure if you changed altitude though.

According to the manual, it seems to be adjusted right for us FL flatlanders. You did bring up a good point though. If we can get all things fixed, we plan on driving across the country to Yosemite in June. I bet I'll need to make some adjustments crossing some of those elevations. I'll ask the tech about it at Onan.
