RE: Battery Disconnect Switch ??

Another way to test is to put a volt meter, set to 20 volt DC scale, between the two small terminals, have helper hold switch in one position. Meter should read voltage either positive 12 volts DC or negative, then have helper hold in other position. Meter should read 12 volts DC with opposite polarity. After the switch is removed there will be the two small terminals you mentioned. That will tell me I should be getting 12 volts DC both ways? Positive and Negative. Good idea ... I'll see what I can do by myself. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Battery Disconnect Switch ??

Make sure the connections on the relay solenoid are clean. The solenoids are not expensive, i would buy a new one and try it. Its a common enough fix in these systems, if that doesn't help, keep it as a spare. Its a good part to have on hand. I'm presuming that the relay solenoid, you mentioned, is located in the battery compartment under the step to the right with the cable connections. Had a SC moment ... Maybe this might help, and I should of mentioned this before but with the generator running the battery connect switch will activate. However the DC/Coach power does not activate otherwise. Will check this out further ... Thanks for the suggestion.

Pull switch from the wall, check for 12 volts DC No power, check for blown fuse. Cycling is operating from one function to the other and back. Like you did. Checked all the fuses that power the coach and all are good.

Battery Disconnect Switch ??

Have an older 2001 Coachman Catalina Sport. The Battery Disconnect Switch has an in-use and store switch. It is a Interellec BDO. The in-use selection does not engage, activate, or turn on. Just replaced the DC battery today with a New battery. Same results! Hope this helps? Any an all assistance would be appreciated. Thank you very much. KK USAF 62-66

RE: Fuel Pump & Gas Filter for Onan Mobile Genset 4KY

When you push the prime button, do you hear the pump? Is there voltage to the pump? If you can hear the pump, attach a short hose to the inlet and see if the pump will suck gas from a gas can. Did you remove the filter and try to blow through it? Your post indicates that you are just trying to throw $$ at your generator instead of trouble shooting the problem. Richard I should have been more specific. The generator has a stop-prime & start button on the exterior of the unit. When the stop-prime button is/was pushed with the gas line disconnected from the carburetor you do not hear the pump and there is no gas being pumped from the line to carburetor. Hope this helps? CC

Fuel Pump & Gas Filter for Onan Mobile Genset 4KY

Dear Friends .... Also Having a starting & running situation with my Onan Mobile Genset 4KY as it is described in the operator's manual. When primer is activated No fuel is being pumped to the carburetor. Local RV dealers do not carry the Fuel Pump & Gas Filter in stock, for the unit. Would like to ask our Family Form members if anybody knows of where I can locate these components and if I may be able to do this job myself? Would I need to order with the Model & Serial #? Any an all information would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much! KK USAF 62-66
