What is the model number of the genset?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
5.5 gjab-1038c also changed oil to 15w-40

While it is running, is it running smoothly, or is it surging?

When it shuts down, does it just shut down like someone turned it off, or does it run rough right before shutting down?

When it shuts down, will it start right back up, or does it have to sit for a while before it will restart?
