Clean out all the vent tubes... each year mine are clogged with dirt dobbers nests.
Put a spray paint gun filter on them, better now.

If you are gonna pull the genset out for repairs, check the oil filler tube.
Might be worth doing what Bkahler did by putting it on slides... I copied and it just makes everything easier for the future...
Here is the thread...
BKahler's link is in his first post..

Here is how mine looks pulled out..

Dropped the genset today. Not too bad of a job.

Pretty much did the following:
Remove the muffler (2 bolts and a nut)
Disconnect AC power lines
Disconnect fuel line (Used vice grips to crimp rubber fuel line after to stop leaking)
Unplug remote start plug
Disconnect +12DC Starter
Jack RV up about 8"
Dig 4" deep trough under jack to allow genset to clear jack (not needed if you can jack the unit up higher)
Place floor jack under genset with board to distribute weight
Remove 8 1/2" bolts (4 on each side)
Lower genset
Disconnect -12v cable
Slide genset out from under

Took about 1.5 hours total

Unit now sitting in the garage and ready to be serviced.
