You realize how important the RV generator is the moment the land power fails. Chances are it will also feature as one of the ‘RV must-haves’ in your potential buyer’s wish-list. It only makes sense that you take a good look at your generator condition before you put up your rig for sale. If you see that it’s not up and running you need to repair the same. The best part is, you can do it yourself. Here are some simple instructions:
Have a look at the circuit breakers. Replace it if you find that they are broken.
Replace the fuel filter and the genset. A brown or black substance surrounding the exhaust will indicate that the fuel filters need replacement.
Examine the DC cables to ensure that they are clean and secured. You will find these cables behind the genset. If you find that they are dirty, clean the cables with a mild and quality cleanser. If the DC cables have become loose, secure them with the help of a screwdriver.
Detach the screws from the cover to check for loose wires.
If you find that the oil is low when the start or stop switch flashes, add more oil as recommended by the user manual.
Other Useful Tips
