Customer Question
I have a Onan RV...
I have a Onan RV generator 4KYFA26100P. Generator starts and runs great, However it does not produce any power. I have checked circuit breaker and wiring into the coach. There is nothing at all at the genset even going into the breaker. Any more ideas?

That can be several things and without testing there is no real way to know. Do you have a good Onan Service Center near you?

You asked for a diagnosis from here........can't do that. You can ask for a refund and you aren't out anything. Kind of like telling the doctor your stomach hurts.........no way to know without some tests what the cause is.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

What is the serial number of the genset?

You state that you have no power getting to the breaker. I assume you are referring to the breaker on the genset itself?
