Generator shut down

2008 Georgetown 370 with an Oman 5500 watt generator. It will run all night no problem. It will run for about a half an hour going down the road and then shuts off. If I stop and turn the engine off it will state right up and run good until I start the coach and we go down the road again or just idle in the parking lot. It will then shut off! Any ideas out there?

Double check your oil level, may be a little low.
Is there and error code displayed when it shuts down?

Just checked the oil and it was right between add and full. I did add a little oil to bring it up to bring it up to full? Not sure about how to read the code but by the time I stop and get back to the gen will the code still flash? I am parked until April!

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem to me. That genset has had carburetor problems.

Campin Cajun . Are you suggesting a bad fuel filter possibly?

Didn't someone have a pinched fuel line awhile back?

If the car has a float that is set too low, fuel starvation will occur when cornering....just like classic car problems.

gmann it could be a filter problem.

The way I try to solve problems is changing out the least expensive parts first. You checked the oil level, that was good and didn't solve. Try changing the filter and looking for a pinched line, if that doesn't help it may be the carb.

You consider the genny is overheating? Where is it located relative to the engine?
