What would cause an Onan Microlite 4000 in a 1993 Fleetwood

Customer Question

What would cause an Onan Microlite 4000 in a 1993 Fleetwood Coronado RV to shut down after an hour of running. Fuel was plenty and load was only refrigerator and air conditioner. Genset will not restart after shutdown. Will restart after a few hours of down time.

Hi my name is Robert....

Sorry for the delay, I see no other experts have responded.... You say you checked the supply, did you actually try a different supply source? Normally you can get a can of fuel and drop the supply to the generator in the can..... Robert

Tried fueling from can - no change. Changed fuel pump - no change. Moved fuel pump to outside of unit - no change. Ran generator with only lights as load - ran 2 hours and wouldn't restart, waited 2 + hours and it would restart and run for a period of time.
