No, the House Battery switch must be On.
The Chassis Battery switch is irrelevant; On or Off, makes no difference.
The generator is an Onan Marquis Gold 5500; 186 hours.
Never changed plugs, as it starts and runs fine. I've only owned the rig for 2 months.
Is it possible for an electronic magneto to go bad on a 186 hour unit?
