That is one cool gen set. I don't know what they changed since our's, which is a 6.5. But here's the two areas I'd be checking. The two little white buttons above are push-button-circuit breakers, the bottoms are actually real fuses. I've had the little white breakers trip many times when listening to the Moody Blues and had lights with roof-air going.

It's to dark for a photo right now, but this is a archive LY photo of our GenSet model.

Nice and clean, but impossible to check the breakers, etc. except, what's the locked enclosure on the right of the gen set?

The panel to the right is for sewage tube storage.

According to the Onan booklet, the front panel of the GenSet is removable and the breakers are behind it.

We'll see.......

Question

I'm just wondering... on my '95 you have to plug the shore power cable into the plug in the locker to get power from the generator.

Does the '04 work the same way?

To all those who have read, helped and contributed:

My wife and I sang two stanzas of "The Hallelujah Chorus" after throwing the one tripped breaker on the generator and the newly found 110 power surged throughout the entire coach.

Thanks to you all, life is good!

As I posted, it does not take much, and it's the front that goes. AS was not exactly on top of wiring, being they were following the Lucas creed. If you look at the layout, the front takes a ton of juice when all is on. We have not had that little problem since we replaced our roof airs. With us, I'm thinking it was the forward Coleman that was drawing too much, or me cranking the Moody Blues. With our friend, I'd bet that some other appliance, etc, was plugged into the circuit that was JUST ENOUGH to trip the breaker. I'm suprised, frankly, why AS intstalled a smaller gen-set in his coach.

Sounds like, at some time, we may have chewed on a few "Days of Future Past" together.

Thanks for all the help.

No problem, we all tend to go to the "dark side" when these problems occur; funny how, in retrospect, the fix seemed so obvious after wracking one's brain.

Those Onan little white breakers are notorious for opening up for no reason or under a load that is not in excess of their rating. I take part in another forum, and the problem has been covered many times. On my own AS 310, when I owned it, I finally replaced the damn things with a regular house panel and two normal 30 amp breakers. End of issue.

Of course, one could have just opened up on some normal overload or short, who knows. But if it happens frequently, remember that others have had issues with the Onan breakers themselves.

Where in-line did you place the breaker box? On the generator itself?

The one white breaker on my unit was evidently tripped prior to our picking up the LY and driving her home last week, so I don't yet know if the problem will be chronic.

Just relax and enjoy the coach. In twenty years, the only thing that's tripped my front breaker is asking for too much juice.

Good advice, I think I'll take it!

39 Amp Service

All the electrical wizards out there with 30 Amp service,
Has anybody seen a conversion to 50 Amp?
The auto switch from front to back A/C is a band aid for hot weather.
Is there an easy way to change to 50 Amp service, or is it not do-able
in our Land Yachts?

try a google search in the forum. i've seen threads about doing it in trailers. some installed a new line and fanel and some just ran a new line for the second air cond.

i suppose the generator poses additional issues.
