Customer Question

Just purchased a 2015 RV with an Onan 5500 generator on board. Unit ran for a few minutes during delivery. Took unit home and ran the generator for about a minute and then it died. Refueled the generator fuel tank and now the generator turns over but will not run. Do I need to "prime" the carb or just continue the starting cycle until the carb gets fuel again?

Hi, I hate to be blunt but the unit is under warranty, for two years, take it back to the dealer. If you tinker with it you will void the warranty.
