Here are a few helpful hints to ensure satisfactory performance of your Onan MicroLite generator.
The main 12 volt battery switch at the monitor panel must be in the on position before generator startup. This will ensure ongoing charge to the auxiliary battery.
Be aware, the fuel pick up for the generator is set at the Ό level (approximate) of your gasoline tank.
Your generator should provide adequate power for operating the A/C and microwave oven at the same time, provided the A/C is started first.
The generator must be exercised (operate under load by running the AC) for at least 2 hours monthly. Lack of exercise can cause moisture build up and fuel system damage (varnishing) that make the generator run poorly.
If you frequently travel at high altitudes or in extreme temperatures, be aware that your generator can lose power in low density air caused by such conditions. Gasoline generators can be adjusted for high altitude by Onan certified service dealers.
Its a good practice to check the oil frequently, or every 8 hours of operating time since the engine can shut down with improper oil levels. Do not check the oil level when the generator is running.
The propane fueled generator (Roadtrek RS Adventurous model) does not have the same exercising demand or altitude adjustment. Avoid starting the generator while the vehicle engine is running. This (DC) load could trip the fuse in the auto battery circuit if charge demand is high.
For propane fuel supply, always open the supply valve at the tank slowly to prevent the safety shut off from being activated.
Onan has an official handbook which details generator operation, maintenance and troubleshooting, safety precautions, winter storage and more. These handbooks are available at Onan certified service dealers or see www.funroads.com
