Marquis Gold is a family of gensets. It is not a model number. Marquis Gold encompasses the model series of HGJAA, HGJAB, HGJAC, HGJAD, HGJAE and HGJAF. Within each model series there are also several different specifications. There are about 40 different models that carry the Marquis Gold name.
I need the actual model number off your unit.
