RE: Old Coleman AC

Looks like I need a new Ac.

RE: Old Coleman AC

Thanks for the answers. I’ll let you know what I find.

RE: Old Coleman AC

I don’t know enough to make a decision. Don’t want to spend the money on capacitors and it is the compressor going out thanks. I had a clamp on meter on it and sometimes it would go up to 41 amps and kick the breaker. But other times I cut it on it would act normal and run right.

Old Coleman AC

Sometimes this Ac starts and runs right but sometimes starting amps go up to high and it will kick the breaker. Wanted advice on if it could be the capacitors or the compressor going out. Thanks

RE: Onan 7000/ac

Turn off the A/C Get some other loads to run from the generator, Electric heaters, air compressors, coffee maker , water heater and fridge on electric Load up the generator with as many loads on different circuits as possible Does the generator handle it ? If so you have an A/C problem Good advice and I’ll add a clamp on ac multimeter and check you starting amps when ac runs and the compressor kicks in.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

From the OP: Our park electrician says that some of the big rigs with 3 ACs and electric everything can sometimes draw more than 50A from a 50A pedestal. A very simple statement regardless of the intent behind it. And that simple statement is absolutely true, at least until either the park 50 amp breaker trips, or the RV 50 amp breaker trips. And the voltage being used is entirely irrelevant. Doesn't matter whether the RV has any 240 vac appliances or if they are all 120 vac. Boggles my mind that this has turned into a 9 page (an counting) debate about an "idiot electrician" making a very simple and very true statement and everyone turning that into their own personal interpretation as if they know more about what he was referring to than the electrician himself. Nothing in your quote states they were referring to 240v operations. Even for big rigs, 240v appliances are very rare. 240 vac has been mentioned multiple times thru the course of this thread. And your own post said the question could not be answered without knowing the voltage. And I still stand on my earlier comments that voltage is irrelevant to the discussion and an RV, whether it has any 240 vac appliances or not, can in fact draw more than 50 amps thru either of the hot legs of the park 50 amp power pedestal until that breaker or the RV 50 amp breaker trips. Yes, people are making lots of assumptions about a conversation they were not part of and then calling the guy an idiot without the full story. There is no evidence the electrician was speaking of 240v draws...so people jumping to the conclusion he was makes no sense. Logically since the vast majority of rigs have NO 240v draws, it would be reasonable to assume he was speaking of 120v draws and in that case, it's very easy for a rig to pull more than 50amps at 120v. This is the OP & that's what park electrician meant. Moderators, please close this thread. Thank you

RE: Unleaded vs. Premium gas, does it make a differnce?

Some good videos on YouTube about this subject I’ve been watching.

RE: Onan Generator Hunts Under Load

Need to know the color of the plug to see if it’s fouling. Wish I was closer it’s to hard trying to help over the net.

RE: Onan Generator Hunts Under Load

Do you have the service manual ? Those choke rods come loose pretty easy so it will make it run rich. What does the spark plug look like ?

RE: Onan generator has power to solenoid but not control board

B+ goes to k4 from the hot side of the solenoid and f2 is a 10 amp fuse between them. http://www.skilledcrafting.com/onanfiles/965-0528%20Onan%20BGE%20(spec%20F-K)%20NHE%20(spec%20E-K)%20Genset%20Service%20manual%20(09-1994)%20965-1060%20Supplement%20(spec%20M)%20(11-1995).pdf

RE: Onan generator has power to solenoid but not control board

I’ll got out later this afternoon and do some testing on one I have on the bench before I say anything. I would unhook the starter so it doesn’t spin the motor when pushing the start button and start tracing power from the start solenoid with the start button pushed in and see where it goes and where it stops getting power. Tape the starter Wire up so it doesn’t short to anything. You should be able to hear fuel pump running with the start button pushed in.

RE: Onan generator has power to solenoid but not control board

There should be a fuse on the board. You have 12 v at the solenoid what about coming out of the solenoid while pushing the start button. What solenoid did you buy it has to be the right one ?

RE: Onan RV QG LP for home back up generator.

When you get it running you’ll have to see if it will reconnect to 120/240 or just use 120 loads. I have the rewire diagram that a guy gave me. He said he rewired his but I have not done it so I personally can’t say it works.

RE: Onan RV QG LP for home back up generator.

Model serial number off the gen or a picture of the tag would be good before you spend money hooking it to the house. Electric capability may make a big difference.

RE: 30amp / 50amp question

Ok I see what your saying . I talking about I guess perfect conditions which we won’t have. That reminds I should clean my plugs. They do get tarnished . Anybody ever clean them with brass cleaner then wipe them with alcohol thinking of trying it. ?

RE: 30amp / 50amp question

So # 10 wire and a 30 amp breaker and plug can’t be run at 30 amps continuous. Do you have to bigger wire or plug or breaker. Plug , wire and breaker are not a generator with a motor ..
