I have an onan 2500 wt propane that shuts down when the air is turned on - Sprinter motorhome

    Does it shut down all the time? Are you able to initially start the
    air conditioner, but upon restarting air conditioner, then generator
    shuts down? It is unusual for a propane generator to have sudden problems that are more common to gasoline gensets. 2500 watts does not give much headroom for other devices when starting an air conditioner. You only have a few hundred watts for everything else that might be turned on as well, including your power converter that charges batteries. If you turn off absolutely everything else (including power converter if you can find the breaker for it), does the air conditioner then run?

Onan Propane Generator Problems


Is the generator coming up to proper speed? A cycles (hertz) (should be 60 in USA) meter will tell.
If it is up to speed, see if a UPS unit is made powerful enough to power the microwave. That will handle the initial starting load from the microwave.
UPS units are handy to power stuff while you are getting the gen going.

1998 discovery motorhome turned on propane at tank no gas at stove.is there a another shut off valve


It can take a while for the propane to get to the stove. ( 20 seconds maybe ) All the air has to bleed out of the line first. Also , if you have 2 tanks , there could be a selector switch on the regulator where the 2 tank hoses come in , that has to be selected to the tank that you have opened the valve on.

I have a 06 2500 dodge sprinter and the fan control speed wheel isnt working. Settings 1-4 will not work. I can feel hot or cold air coming out of the vents while I'm driving but cannot adjust it.


I have changed the resistor 2 times for the same problem. Its under the hood behind the fan motor insulation.
Mine burned because of fan motor frozen & stuck in the winter. Solution is to let the engine warm up before turning the fan on.
Cheers, Brian

I have an Onan 2500 LP generator. What is the red knob for?


That knob should be to bring pressure up and down with 0 being off or the lowest range of the regulator. This regulator is adjustable for different applications apparently.
