I have a 6500 lp onan marquis generator in my rv that wont start. any suggestions?


Check the fuel. If old, drain & refill it.
Check for spark.
If the fuel is there and good, trace it to the carburetor. Check the carburetor bowl for fuel.
Check the spark plug, the magneto, any switch that breaks the circuit or kills the circuit for spark.
If you're getting good fuel to the carburetor and you're getting good spark, try to start it with ether spray.
You might also want to check compression while you're checking everything else.

GE Generator 10kw model #040448. TRANSFER SWITCH FAULT message being displayed. Generator works fine. Generator output load voltage = 233V.


This generator has a built in transfer switch. If you do not have an external source of 240 volts going in to the unit (utility power), the transfer switch will show a fault or "abnormal" reading. If you do have utility power going in to the transfer switch, and the generator is on then you have a faulty transfer switch. It is time to warranty or get a replacement switch.

Your air filter may be stuck with dirt or moist. Try to clean or change it.

Need battery for Onan 6500 Generator


I have searched but cannot actually find what type male of battery it uses, other than it is a Lead Acid Battery. Now with lead Acid batteries, it is the actual Capacity, in Both Amperage output, and Physical capacity. So based upon that ANY 12 V DC Wet Cell battery of the SAME Physical size, and CURRENT capacity will work. Look on the actual battery itself, it WILL/Should have identifying marks written on it. Get one the same, it is NOT all that critical.

Check to see if you have power going into the switch. This can be done with a voltage meter at the terminals were the cable runs into the transfer switch. Do you have power at the generator plug?

Converting the power to genertor


You should not have to switch between battery and generator, unless you are trying to use an inverter as well. Batteries are 12vdc, typically run lighting, water pump, furnace, fridge controls. Generator powers ac, microwave, television, and anything else that plugs into a 120vac wall outlet. Inverter may also run select loads, and possibly dedicated wall outlets, but not AC, fridge, or microwave (usually).

Most RVs / Motorhomes now have automatic transfer switches that will switch between the generator, shorepower, and possibly an inverter. Your coach is made during an era of transition from manual transfer switch (in form of heavy duty electrical outlet near shore power cord) and the automatic transfer switch.

There is no specific place where a transfer switch or generator receptacle are mounted on an RV. There are no rules or regulations tha cover this as far as I know. Your RV may also have an EMS (Energy Management System) that will control the transfer switch as well. EMS panels are typically located above the refrigerator or above driver / passenger seats in overhead compartment.

6.5 RV Onan generaotr wont kick in when loaded. checked automatic transfer switch and excited it manually, worked one time but never again,


1. Does the generator stay running when you start it the first time?

2. What color is the housing on this generator? Try to get the model number and serial number.

If the genset is shutting down on the first try, then your probably not creating voltage. However, if this is an older unit then the genset may stay running although no voltage is created. Place a volt meter on the genset to check for output voltage.
