Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
I have a 10000 watt honda/master generator. Because of the ice storm here in Arkansas, I fired up my generator, and after 2 hours it shut down. I took it in to be serviced, and was shown the broken cam shaft! I had the generator repaired and took it home. For some reason I can only get 88 volts tops whether there's a load on it or not. The serviceman claimed he plugged a drill into it and said everything checked out in the shop. My generator is 10 years old and has 27 hours on it. Would transporting it home down a bumpy dirt road possibly break something enough to only produce 88 volts?
Nothing about the bumpy dirt road would have done this but the 10 years of storage might mean that you've got dirty slip rings. Plugging a drill into the 10Kw generator isn't going to tell one much about the power coming out of it, you need a stove :-)
After a camshaft replacement I'd want to use the "Hz" function of the DVM to make sure I was getting 60 Hz.

The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.
The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.
