Question about 1983 Chevrolet Chevy

1 Answer

We have an rv with a onan emerld I set generator on board. When we bought the rv (used) the generator did not work at all. We purchased the motherboard for it and it now starts and runs fine but we are not getting anything to run off the generator in the rv. Don't know anything about rvs or generators this is our first for both. Any ideas?? thanks to all who reply!!

Is your generator wired in to an automatic switchover in the motorhome, or do you have external plug in on face of generator, or near it. The power from the generator needs to be attached one way or another to the motorhome. It may be as simple as plugging the cord from motorhome into it, depending on what set-up you have.

I have a 2007 travel trailer I need to know where the generator is and how it works


Dorothy: You need to know the make, model and year to answer that question. According to RV trailers, most travel trailers do NOT come with an onboard generator.

Are the wires in a Onan gender numbered in the panel box cause their all white in color and all disconnected help me with a dummies version diagram please!


I believe you are asking about an Onan generator in a motor home? Search for your model number on generator, then go to the Onan website and look for a pdf download of their wiring manual. My dealer would help me with this for free, ask yours. Be prepared for $100/ hr if the dealer works on it.
