      Rolly and Chris Ford March 20 I sure hope so. We do. The chassis ac can't keep up in hot weather.

      Phil & Bonnie White March 20 I was advised by an Onan technician years ago that most people don't run the generator enough and he recommended running it while driving which I have done ever since...about six years now.

        Norm & Ann Burgess March 28 Yes I run mine for at least 30 minutes every 3 weeks

      David Leslie Jasper & JoJo March 20 Last year in July when we left Yuma, AZ headed to our Summer home in Hermiston, OR, we had our large Quiet Diesel Onan generator and three roof ACs running for three days, 24 hours per day before we got far enough North to let them relax.

      Joan & David Ransier March 20 It makes sense to use that time to exercise the Benny, but that is counter having your propane turned off while on the road. If there’s an accident and the propane is on, that significantly increases the chance of fire.

        Joan & David Ransier March 20 “Benny” should read “genny” - darn autocorrect!
      • JoeAndSandy
        David Leslie Jasper & JoJo March 20 In the upper right corner of the dialog box where your error is located, hover your cursor over the down arrow, then click on "edit".  Now make your corrections, then save your new dialog.  You may also delete your dialog box under the down arrow too.

      Rolly and Chris Ford March 20 Ours is diesel. So I have to do is watch the fuel gauge. But at .9gph it doesn't matter much for the 4-5 hours we drive.

      Nancy Applegate March 20 I have a dead chassis battery. A friend suggested I turn on the generator and then try to start the rig while the genny is running. Yes or no? TIA

        David Leslie Jasper & JoJo March 20 I don't know your coach but most coaches are able to charge both battery banks from shore power, generator power, or engine power.  Also, our coach has a button that connects the two battery banks.  That way, if one battery bank is weak, like in your case...  more

        StanUbeki March 28 You may want to check your battery isolator. It decouples the chassis battery from the house battery when the motor is off. If its bad, you're using your chassis battery in the house. Been there done that.
    • JoeAndSandy
      Mike & Marsha Farmer March 20 Yes absolutely. You could also try starting it off your house batteries. Should be a switch on your dash.

      Nancy Applegate March 20 Thanks, y’all.

      Kenda B March 20 In extreme temps we run our generator while driving to heat or cool the rig so there is less the system has to do once plugged into power. Have been loving traveling without running the generator thanks to the better temps.
    • JoeAndSandy
      Greg & Reba March 21 Just make sure that you have an electrical load such as an air conditioner or a heater while running the generator.
    • JoeAndSandy
      Susan & Richard March 21 We run ours so we can run roof AC. if the weather is really hot, the dash air can't keep up. Gets better mileage when we're using the generator, but the cost of the propane is a trade off..
    • JoeAndSandy
      Jenna & The ZARGON March 22 Chiming in.... a RESOUNDING YES!!! I also do it all the time in HOT summer travels. The AC from the front of the RV just doesn't cut it. Enjoy!!!
    • JoeAndSandy
      Avery & Angel March 25 As most have already posted, we nearly always run our generator during travel during the summer months to run the roof AC. We have an Onan 5500 Marquis Gold generator that, according to the manufacturer's web site, only uses 1/2 gallon of gas per hour at...  more

      Robert & Vickie Bohannon March 28 According to the Cummings Rep who spoke at the FMCA Ralley in Perry its perfectly okay just remember to turn it off when refueling.
    • JoeAndSandy
      StanUbeki March 28 I think most people are woosies about A/C. I have not used our AC in five years. I'm considering removing the rooftop unit because it's right over the kitchen and takes the two inches I need for headroom. We generally avoid parks. The primary reason is th...  more
