Land Yacht 33' generator battery

I have a 2000 land yacht 33 with an Onan generator. The battery is dead and I cannot locate the battery. I was told I may have to pull the generator to replace the battery. Any know anything about this?

My 93 LY starts off of the chassis battery. Don't know of a separate battery just for the generator.

Are you sure it's a battery issue? It may be a starter motor or solenoid problem.

Which genset do you have? I'm assuming it an Onan Marquis but not sure which specific model.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, as I've had the battery replaced before. Wish mine started of the Chassis battery, I've thought before it should or I wish I could rewire it that way.

second thoughts. generator may have been pulled for carb service. Is there something I can check on the chassis battery connection, ie relay, fuse or ???

What model Onan do you have? I can pull the schematics if I know the complete model number.

landyacht generator battery

My 2005 has 2 coach batteries, and 1 chassis battery under the front hood. If my coach batteries are dead, then my generator will not start. Either charge or replace your coach batteries, or start the engine and drive it around awhile which will charge your coach batteries. Once they are charged, you should be able to start your generator which will charge the coach batteries also while it is running

Aha. I have the same setup. Chassis battery starts thhe engine and charges, I don't think the coach batteries are charging. It may be the way I have them connected, as I replaced them last year and uncertain How to reconnect the battery cables. Trying to figure out if that's the problem or if there is something else. I've got schematics by not good at reading them. Any other ideas of what to check or how to connect battery cables are appreciated. Thanks for the reply.
