      maryinredding It's mold. I am cleaning it off my ceiling in the winter months. I got a product called mold away and it's great. We use it on our boat too. The mold stays away for awhile but will come back. I think I ordered it on Amazon.

      DB&GG I have the 2008 Access 31C and love it.  Never had this issue (mold) as living in Fl. I keep the unit closed and keep the air on.  Taking it West to the NP's in a couple of weeks.

    Hello, My generator won't start. When I disconnected the fuel line that goes into the fuel pump there is no fuel coming out. Any ideas what causes that? There is a full tank of gas.:)

      Gwynn and Chuck Siemen And you have more than 1/4 tank of fuel? Most gens won’t get fuel or run if source tank reaches that level. Don’t want the genset to leave you high and dry.

      JimOnTheBeach Have you applied 12 volts to the fuel pump itself to determine that it is actually running by making a rattling noise?

        Lois Michele Hi Jim, Thank you for the info. I'm going  to find an insulated wire and run it from my car battery to the pump to test it. I really appreciate your help.  It's nice to talk to someone in the know! That way I don't fry myself or any components! :)

      JimOnTheBeach Mine is an Onan 4000 generator. And I have been told that if that fuel pump totally fails at anytime it can be replaced by a motorcycle fuel pump which is about the same size. I'm not sure but if it ever comes to that I will check the prices and availability first. Hide 1 Reply

        Lois Michele Update, I have the fuel pump on order, I found one by Airtex that is the replacement for the Onan. It is under $40! I will let you know how it turns out, I ordered it thru Walmart and don't yet have a delivery date. Summit Racing also carries the part but...  more

      (Proactive1) Jim and Jan Hollis Carburetors arenoften the culprit. Onans are tops and
      The best thing for them is to RUN them 1 hour underload at least every couple of weeks.

      Clifford and Marilyn Carroll Well I pulled into the shop at 7:00am this morning and the tech started on my generator right away.

        Hoffie Don't be afraid of running it. My Onan mechanic says that they should run 10,000 hours without any major issues provided it is used. They are made to run, not set and collect dust and rust - just make sure to follow the maintenance schedule. I agree with ...  more

    I know there’s a place on the Winnebago website, or somewhere, to enter your serial number and it brings up every screw, nut, cushion etc on your unit. I used it a couple years ago but now can’t find it. Can anyone tell me where it is? 🤔🤔

      Bandit455 Has nothing to do w/ boost switch/battery voltage. It could possibly be corrosion in the "battery" feed to the starter, but the other end is connected to a relay I cannot locate. When I hit the key it will either fire right away or click. Hit the key 2,3 ...  more
