Power Tech - Kubota 8kw Generator low oil pressure

Hello, my Powertech/Kubota 8kw generator in my 09 Charleston has a mind of its own. I currenlty have 701 hours on the unit, recently it has decided it wants to stop, with the diagnosis displaying low oil pressure detected (3 flashes). I called Powertech, they said it could be the oil filter, so I went and bought the kubota filter, changed the oil (HD 30), and have the same issue. It may run 20 minutes and die, or it may run 6 hours. Here in Texas going down the road with no AC makes the trip slightly difficult, as you have to pull over, shut off the coach, slide out the unit, reset the generator computer, restart coach, repeat. Thought about bypassing the sensor, not sure how, or buying a new sensor. Anyone else having this issue?
