I just bought this 83 Brougham rv and the gen charges the battery, but no A/C to the camper. There is a 30A outlet mounted right inside of where the power cord is stored. The power cord was cut. and I am adding a male 30A plug. it did come with a 30A extension cord. The A/C does work when plugged to shore power. Could the Gen be powering that box? Plugging the RV cord into that box be how I get A/C to the camper? I do not see any power center. just the A/C-D/C power bow with CB and Fuses.
Thanks for the help.
I put the sea foam in a gallon of gas and had the generator suck it out of a windshield washer fluid bottle. It worked well.
Last time I went to "exercise" the generator it wouldn't stay running. My fuel gauge doesn't work so I keep a log. There was no way it could be below 1/4 tank...but it was. The fuel economy on this thing is not right - sub-5 MPG if my calculations are correct. I have some carb work to do.
If its a 6500 there may be two breakers, however I think they are toggled together so if one trips the other does also
"I dont think they bridge John because the loads are independant. They usually bridge the 220 or I imagine 440"
David, you may be correct, I just don't recall its been too long. Sure in AC power distribution the code often requires ties for safety but that's a different thing then when running two 120 VAC circuits out of a genset?????
I did all those things to mine when I first fired it up after a 6-year nap. It seems to be happy. I had some surging that was cured by running some Sea Foam through it.
The older Onans used mechanical breaker points which are located up on top under a small rectangular metal box cover, if it has points Id change and gap them, new plugs, oil and air filter good to go......
I hope to never have to remove mine - not sure how I'd do it. That would be the only way to get the heads off of it.
