Make of unit? What is the 8000 ? Generator? or ???
Let me opt out and see if there is a generator expert on line. Sorry.
Hi, my name is***** will try to assist you.
The majority of Generac machines are built in such a way that they do not charge the battery unless you are actually pulling voltage from the control panel. If you just start the engine and let it run it does not charge the battery, in order to charge the battery you have to be physically utilizing the genset to power something else from the control panel.
