UK RVer Needs A Generator For His Motorhome, Can You Help Him?

by Skender
(Northampton, UK)

Hi all,

I've just bought an old Winnebago Elandan 87' and is costing me a fortune. It’s in the garage being serviced at the moment the bill will be in thousands. It looks like the generator has given up the ghost too. I have been told by the garage that the rotor has gone possibly the carburetor as well.

It's an Onan Emerald BGE 5.5 kw

Does anyone know a decent chap who can fix it at a reasonable price, or buy a second-hand one?

many thanks. Skender

ANSWER: Hi Skender Unfortunately I am based in the US and really do not know about repair shops in the UK that can repair your generator or even where you could buy a used generator.

One thing I can suggest is that you go to the Website and join their forums. The ARVClub is based out of the UK and is for UK RVers who own US-made RVs. You may get some good results if you post your request on their forums.

I live in Uk and have found some very useful sites on Ebay UK which have spares shops and two of which have servicing

I drive a 1990 Holiday Rambler Alumalite and I know of an Elandan which is available. Nice motorhome, enjoy the journey
