Check any FR dealer (even non-FR3 dealer works) and ask if they can order those PN listed in this thread. Someone else did that and worked out. It took the rep a couple of days to respond back to me via email, so maybe give them some time.

You will have to go through your dealer.

I'd expect if you don't have a vent on your generator door, that you might have vapor lock issues while driving down the road. That vent cover will fit any RV since its cut to fit setup. Just not sure about the color, if that'll match the Georgetowns.

Since I have the Ace, my dealer needed a model to look it up.
I used FR3 30D.

I put 2 stainless steel 4 louver marine vents in our generator door. They measure approx. 10" x 4". They seem to be working well as I've had no problems with vapor lock or anything else.
I'd post a picture but, for some reason I'm unable to upload them.

My RV tech explained that the 4000 series have air intake on side of the unit, the 5500 have air intake on the bottom of the unit. So a vent door on the side may not help your Georgetown. Wish these things were figured out before they get to us. :-)

This is probably true. My comments were specific to the Onan 4kw genset. Good catch.

KansasFR3, glad yours is reliable again. I was excited when I saw your post on the fix....then bummed when my tech explained why it wouldn't work for me. Oh well, we travel more in the cooler weather anyway. Safe travels.

I have the onan 4k on my forester 2801. So as I understand a vent is a good idea regardless due to intake for gen is on side?
