RV Generator Does Not Run

by Anonymous

Will not start. Was starting when I put gas right in it, for a minute.

ANSWER: Thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Based on the fact that your generator starts when you add fuel to it means that your generator has a fuel supply problem, there could be a couple of causes to the fuel supply problem with your Generatoricon.

The first thing I would do is check for a blocked Fuel Filtericon on the Generator itself or an in-line fuel filter on the fuel supply line leading from your RV's fuel tank to the generator.

It could also be a loose fuel line connection on the generator or fuel tank or a cracked or leaking fuel line. You need to thoroughly check the fuel line from the generator to the fuel tank. A cracked, loose or leaking line will not allow the fuel pump on your generator to develop suction and pull the fuel into the generator.

Lastly it could be a bad fuel pump on the generator itself.

I hope this helps.

Check fuel level
by: Anonymous

You should first check the fuel level in your MH tank. If it's low your generator will not recieve any fuel, this is to prevent your generator using up all of your MH fuel supply. Fill your gas tank and then re-check fuel supply to generator BEFORE pulling fuel filters etc.
