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

What is the full model number of the genset? There are 17 different versions of the BGE series.

On that wire, there will be 2 parts to the code. After the J1-8, there will be about 3 spaces, and then another letter/number combination. What is that full code?

It will look something like J1-8 L0, or J1-8 K1-I.
