RE: Onan hot hot hot

We have been drom FL to Michigan and almost baxk home in the last couple of weeks. I now shut off the air conditioners for 5 minutes before shutoff for fuel. It starts up, though I do have to hold prime 20 seconds or it starts, sputters, and dies. I think there is a slight vapor lock, but it is fine after priming brings in some fuel. I ran in 90+ temps a lot, and 97 in Mich. Never had a single problem. Map40 abd Down The Avenue hit it right on the nose. Letting it run for a few minutes without ac cools it down enough that a prime gets it restarted every time.

RE: Onan hot hot hot

What a bummer man. You spent a couple thousand at cw and an Onan technician came out twice? I wonder if there is paper work documenting his Hot Air Recirculation Test? If not maybe you can recoup some dinero. THAT problem was the fuel pump. They replaced the carb, and then said they were going to rebuild THAT! All it was, the whole time, was a fuel pump. I fixed it in ten minutes, under $100.

RE: Onan hot hot hot

The gennie is a 5500 Marquis Gold HG JAB. Thanks for the fan post, I am considering that and an air scoop under the coach. And the cooling off. I've never done that.We are usually running two ACs, because of the heat in FL and back and forth to Texas. I'll be sure to do so in the future.

RE: A crappy experience

I know you solved the leaky hose with a replacement. The swivel that the manual talks about is that the connector pipe (between the grey and black tank valves) will swivel up and down so that it has more of a downward angle when dumping. When in the up position you do not have to worry about spillage when removing the cap to connect the hose if the valves leaked. Mike Son of a gun! I've owned my 2005 Georgieboy for 5 years. The idiotic design had the hose always attached and inside a plastic box screwed to the bottom of the rv. Without the box (which cut the stupid hoses) the connection is right even with the floor and a bear to hook up. I read your post, went outside, and my y pipe swived right up to where I can leave my sewer solution and hooked up. Thank you, thank you, thank you! No more kneeling and struggling!

RE: A crappy experience

My connection is just about even with the hole in the floor. It is a pain to reach. Point being, my hose has clicked in to the bayonet slot, but the back wasn't actually hooked. I learned, the hard way, that I should crack the grey water first, just to check. If your connection is as inconvenient as mine, I strongly suggest you do the same.

RE: Onan hot hot hot

I checked the carb altitude, it is set to 0, where I am. I started it, there is a lot of air coming out the air exit by the muffler. Someone somewhere mentioned a summer/winter switch, but I don't see one.

Onan hot hot hot

I had trouble with my gennie dying for years. I spent a couple thousand at CW, they called in onan twice, kept it for many months. I pulled the fuel pump and replaced it. Runs great. I drove 200 miles across Florida, 90 degrees. No problems. Coming home, I stopped for gas. I shut it off (it exhausts under the fuel filler door.)mWhen I went to start it, no joy. I went to shange the oil. I could barely keep my hands on the cover to pull it. I had to hold the dipstick with a rag, it was too hot too touch. I drove a few minutes to let it cool. After ten or fifteen minutes it started right up. No problems after. I can shut it off and restart, but sitting long enough to fuel up it gets too hot. I looked under it to see where air goes in... There is a perforated metal part where the oill filter and drain is. There is metal plate behind it (touching). There's a pan that covers almost the whole bottom, and the perforated part disappears over that, with a 2" gap the length. Is it open under? I assume there is a fan, is it belt driven? Seems awfully hot. Is this normal? Does your gen set get that hot?
