2008 Gaurdian Generac 3cyl diesel shuts off after hitting bump

I'm hoping Carl has an answer for this one. He seems to be the man on Generators. I have a 2008 Gaurdian Generac 7500Watt 3Cyl Diesel. It is Installed in my custome built motorhome. Ever since it was installed I have had this reaccurring problem. With The generator running while rolling down the road if I hit a good size bump in the road the generator shutts off. It will start back up and run again until I hit another large bump in the road. It runs constant when the motorhome is not in motion. I have check all the wires I can for loose connections. Any ideas?
Thanks Rob

If you dont find a solution here. Call Generac in Waukesha WI. and get the number for Robert Schwalm Co. He is the best in the Country for Generac I used to be #2 but I havent worked on all the new Generacs. Give me an old RV unit and no one is faster!

10kw Generac shut down overspeed


Make sure that the throttle linkage is all there and not damaged/misadjusted, then get a manometer and check your inlet gas pressure. Gas pressure should be 8 inches of water column and stay there running or not.

If this is an XL4000 I first check on the condition of the brushes and slip rings, then look at the voltage regulator.

20KW Guardian Generac does not produce 12 volts to run engine


The problem is that the printed circuit board inside the generator draws a little current from the battery even when the generator is not running. Over the course of a few days this can make the battery weak enough to be unable to get recharged by the built in running charger which results in not enough power to run the electronic governor on the generator. Usually the spark plugs will work even with a fairly low battery.

Most of the Generac generators come with a built in trickle charger that runs off of the transfer switch load terminals. If your built in charger isn't doing the job it's either broken or you have the wrong sort of battery installed in the generator.

Regards,
Carl
