What type of motorhome & generator is it. Some generators will shut down (basically run out of gas) at 1/4-1/2 tank in motorhome as a feature, to allow you enough gas to get to a station, in case you forget. The fitting for fuel from tank, for generator is placed that way in tank. Is that not the case? Make sure you have at least 1/2 or more fuel in tank of motorhome just to be sure, as we found many that were supposed to be set about 1/4 tank, but were closer to half tank on motorhome.

check your grounds & the fuel pump connections.the ground should run to the right rear of the motor. look at the wires back to the motor on the frame for anything that may have nicked a wire or a rub thru. You have a short and i belive it shut down if you hit a bump. loose or fraid wire some place. Best of luck & keep us posted on your fix.

Diesel generator runs for short time then shuts down. it is a onan 7.5 & runs off of the motor home fuel tank


More than likely a safety control circuit on startup. Either high water temp, low oil pressure, or over rev condition. If not any of the above quite possibly the integratrated generator/engine control circuit board.
