RE: High end gasser or entry level DP

From the title of this thread, I would never buy an entry level anything. You must determine gas or diesel but consider you can afford a DP and a quality one if you go back enough years. We purchased a 10 yo quality DP and had it inspected, especially the chassis, and have not been disappointed. The ride is soft and comfortable, conversation easy even after almost 100,000 miles. 2007 and earlier eliminates the DPF and DEF hassles.

RE: Evolving Canines, de-evoloving people?

This thread is NOT about behaviors when camping. It is pure and simply a "let's bash California" thread. Yes. Every state should pass laws against doing anything to help the homeless. Just like a raccoon, if you feed him, he will come back. And he might bring friends. Pass laws, don't let them sleep in parks, under bridges, or any public place. When you catch one, take him to court, charge him a big fine. Can't pay the fine? Put him in jail! That's a simplistic answer to a difficult problem. You don't really think the homeless are going to pay a fine and change their behavior, so If you jail all the homeless you better have a large tax base to take care of them.

RE: Evolving Canines, de-evoloving people?

I read with interest the OP's link to the article about the newly elected DA ignoring the laws concerning prostitution, defecating and urinating in public. If I read the article correctly it seems that S.F. has laws on the books criminalizing this behavior but the DA has chose to ignore them. So this new DA has taken it upon himself to interpret laws and ignore them as he sees fit. Did no one else catch this? I believe is was N.Y.city mayor Rudy Giulian that cleaned up N.Y. city by changing city law banning sex peep shows and related activity in Times Square. He also enforced the ban against public urination. His reasoning was if you enforce the laws concerning little crimes you'll have less big crime. I don't know if that panned out but as a frequent visitor to the city I did notice Time's Sq became a more clean and enjoyable place to visit. My career took me many times to both S.F. and Seattle. In the early 2010's I did not notice the issues we're discussing in S.F. so it must have gotten worse since them. However Seattle is another story. I would avoid downtown Seattle then and it's probably gotten worse.

RE: Onan Generator Fault Code 2- Low oil pressure

The original poster here; I went to the coach yesterday and started the generator, it started up normally. It ran normally and sounded normal for about 15 minutes until I shut it down. I don't think I have an oil pressure issue, I think it is an electrical issue. I'm going to investigate the electrical control on the unit paying close attention to the connectors.

RE: Onan Generator Fault Code 2- Low oil pressure

It may be over filled slightly but that's not the problem. It initially started a year ago when it was slightly below the fill mark on the dip stick. I changed the oil and filled to the top of the dip stick and that seemed to fix it for about 6 months then started again. Also note that this only happens on start up, it has never shut down once it has started successfully until I purposely shut it down.

RE: Onan Generator Fault Code 2- Low oil pressure

One wire to the low oil pressure switch, it is white. Engine sounds and runs normally.

Onan Generator Fault Code 2- Low oil pressure

Starting about a year ago my 7.5 KW diesel generator on about every 3rd start attempt would start and run for about 5 seconds and then auto shutdown flashing a low oil pressure code. This only happened about a third of the time and only on start up. Once started if it didn't shutdown after 5 seconds it ran normally. It never shut down after a successful start. I changed the oil and filter and topped the oil right up to the top of the oil dip stick. This worked for about 6 months and then started again. I over filled the oil by about half a quart and again that seemed to fix it for about a month or about 10 start attempts before it happened again. Now it happens about half the time. It starts and runs for about 5 sec and displays 2 flashes on the start switch indicating a low oil pressure issue. But again when it does start successfully it never auto shuts down, ie it runs until I manually shut it down. So it is an intermittent issue. It is impossible to get to the oil pressure sending unit without virtually taking the entire engine apart. I would like to verify the engine is getting oil pressure. I can get to the white wire leading to the pressure switch and am wondering if I can verify oil pressure in some way by testing the wire to the oil pressure switch. Any help is greatly appreciated. I've been chasing this problem for almost a year.
