Generator match

Can the generator serial number be traced to the vin number.

hmmmm....saw this thread topic, and had to ask myself "is he needing to find his match to light his generator??"..... hmmmmm


but, no, not sure if your factory paperwork alludes to any specific coach installed item's serial numbers - they're usually included in the original paperwork stack/briefcase that the original owner receives, though, along with the owner manuals for each.


but, ......why do you 'need' to know - suspecting a different replacement generator from the original?

I suppose that could happen, but with a 2015 coach, that would be a little, no VERY, uncommon, or unlikely.

How many hours were on it?
Why would the stator need to be replaced?
What would make you happen to think that it might not be the original?

Stator had to be replaced after diagnostic performed.
I had trouble with unit shutting down after traveling for roughly 20 minutes or so. Same issue more than once with a 41 code if I remember correctly. Repair shop did the job and I was charged $2850 for a size 4000 watt. I thought was extremely expensive.
Now the unit looks old and tired in comparison.

generators, I've found, can be a little finicky ... ours can run for months and months, off and on as needed, with no issues, and yet the other day, it shut down on it's own.
It supposedly gave me a code that alludes to the engine over revving, or something. After letting it sit for an hour, it ran thereafter with no issues, for over 5 straight hours!
A day later, in the hot afternoon, while running for the air conditioners, it shut down again. This time the code alluded to an 'high fluids temp'. I checked the oil, and the coolant, and both were fine. After sitting for a few minutes, I cranked it and it ran for several more hours with no issues.

go figure. who knows.
