My generator is an Onan Camp Power 2800w (and a gas model but it appears it was converted to run on LP). So, guessing this might be a replacement?

Possibly or original/subsequent owner installed the Onan on a generator ready camper.
Lance factory generator option was the Generac, I don't know if Onan was an option

A good way to tell if a Generac was ever installed is to look in the step below the dinette slideout. The Generac had a remote inverter that occupied about half of the space inside the step. It may still be in there, or at least the cable that connected it to the generator may still be there.

Generac RV generators were notoriously difficult for some tech’s to fix because they didn’t understand how they worked. On top of that, some of the parts were ridiculously expensive. Some failures could easily cost more than a new generator. Consequently, a lot of them ended up getting junked with low hours on them, and they ended up with a bad reputation amongst some of the owners.

WOW...didn't even know that space existed till now. No Generac anything there, but there was a brand new Hillshire Farms gift pack with 2 beef logs, crackers, and cheese...all have long since dried up. How no rodents ever found that is pretty remarkable. So, perhaps the Onan was an add-on after the original sale.

That is the funniest thing I have EVER read on this forum.
