I'll have to recheck mine but I believe it has a foam filter on the end of the hose. I always wondered what it was for.

Just had this problem of not starting I found this thread and inserted a metal tent peg into the vent pipe I saw some spider webbing on the end of the peg when it came out of the vent hose and the generator started first attempt .
This is a great site that has helped me solve a few problems with my van .
Thanks
Colin

Starting problem on Onan 2500 solved

Thank you Thank you Thank you !! The generator on my 2008 Interstate quit a couple of weeks ago and your tip on the plugged vent hose solved my problem in about 1 minute... The mud wasps had plugged the vent, when I cleaned out the mud the generator started instantly! I need to read more of the thread to confirm what that vent actually does.

thanks again!!

Avanti,
Count me among the grateful folks that found your solution to the "Onan genset cranking but not starting" issue!! Looked under the bus and the vent hose was plugged by a mud dauber just like you described. Thanks!!
