Customer Question
I have a Cummins...

I have a Cummins Onan RV QD 10000. It cut off while

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Drivimg down the road. It is flashing 3 times. It will start and run for a few seconds and then cut off. What can I check?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

We were a little less than a half of tank of fuel

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

We are on the road on a trip. So I guess so

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It has 604 hours on it
