I have an Onan generator in an 87 Winnebago RV with 130 hours

Customer Question

I have an Onan generator in an 87 Winnebago RV with 130 hours on it. It will start but only runs if I hold the switch. The shoreline socket and junction box under the dinette seat only show 60 volts. Also, it blows the fuses after a couple start attempts.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
This sounds like the generator itself may be shorting out internally causing the issues here.I would have the wiring checked to the generator to see if any shorts are found and if this is all found to be o.k. I would have the generator itself tested by someone that has the correct diagrams for it and test equipment to see if it needs repaired or replaced.
Thanks Pete
