2013 Sunseeker 32 ft. C

JHi guys, next week I'm gonna help a friend change the oil on her generator on her 2013 Sunseeker. What model Cummin/Onan genset is on that rig, and, does anyone have a cross over oil filter number to the Onan filters that always take time to order in the Buffalo, NY area.

Thanks in advance.

I should have mentioned in my post I always had good look with Napa Gold Filters when I had my Georgetown and before that my Allegro.

It might be wise to get some photos or video of that bad boy so you know exactly what you will be working on!

If it's an ONAN 4000, it may not have an oil filter. There's none on the one in my 2016 Sunseeker.

Love YouTube, it appears that the genny is a Micro Quiet 4000. And, yes no oil filter, weird huh?

Thanks for the replies.

Just be careful you don't over fill it. I use straight 30hd oil (detergent).
Onan recommends:
Meets SJ,SL,SM or SN (for gas engine)
SAE 30 from 32 to above 100
SAE 15w-40 from 10 to above 100
SAE 10W-30 or 10w-40 for use between 0 and 100
SAE 5w-30 from below -20 to 50
SAE 30 is the preferred summer grade for optimum oil consumption control in the air cooled one's.
Change oil after every 150 running hours or yearly, whichever comes first.
I do mine every time I change the engine oil. I hope this helps.

Thanks, Bill and Gail! Spoke to my friend last night and she's gonna send her husband to Walmart to pick up a couple of quarts of HD30. That's all I ever used in my two gas genny's. I just change the oil and filter (on 5500W Units) yearly, much less than 150 hours. When I traded my Georgetown in last May, I thing the genny had like 91 total hours on it. Funny too is it seemed like we used it a lot. Darn Napa Gold Filter runs $17 for the bigger units.

Tomorrow, suppose to be sunny and 70 in the WNY state area and I'll be changing the oil on my 6KW diesel generator. Three qts. 15W40 diesel oil, $20 for the filter on Amazon and $24 for a new air filter. Oh well!

I have been using 15W/40 in mine since new and no problem. I use the Shell Tectron. Over 400 hours on it.

I have the 2014 Sunseeker 2690S no oil filter on my Oran generator . I just change the oil and air filter yearly. Check manual for specs and oil capacity. Looks like the weather is finally starting to warm up in WNY. Good Luck

Before you put that little steel mask on the bottom consider changing those screws to allen heads...... check the screw depth first.

I agree. Throw away the original screws on the drain plug access cover. I always had to go find the tool that fit them. I replaced mine with hex head screws. I then put a label on the generator with the socket sizes for the drain plug and the drain cover screws so I wouldn't have to try every socket I had. As I recall they are all metric, so be careful when you pick out whatever style screws you use.

I also put a label on the generator with the amount of oil it needed to refill.
