I have no intention of going to the local RV shop. Donít have any confidence that I wonít get ripped off.

I need to know if there is a replacement generator that can be installed in the Onan shell? I am retired and have limited funds.
I just bought a 1996 Chevy 210Popular. Grateful you weren't hurt. I'm reluctant to pursue generator [cost, noise, fumes, location] and am starting to pursue other options for power. From my readings it seems solar isn't a magic bullet and Lithium batteries have problems. There must be a solution that works without breaking the bank Thankfully my RV technician was honest in assessment of probem and possible solutions. [The two previous RV centers were dishonest]

It all depends on what you need from your power. If you need to run air conditioning and are on a budget having a generator may be about the only option. If you just need power for a microwave run or other uses a bit more battery, some solar, and maybe a big alternator can cover it for many people.

Things have changed. Maybe the new Onan will work for you.
