  1. Switch to a Northern Lights Genset! Onan Cummins are funky.

  2. What mask does your son have and how well does it work?

  3. If there is a safety switch on the system it could have been triggered. This would allow the motor to turn over but not stay started. The code showed an alarm notice. Check this out. I am more familiar with vehicles but they have this problem sometimes. If the unit feels compromised in any way the security system will shut the unit down to protect it. Good luck!

  8. One thing I hate is something breaking and don't know how to fix it! What's worse is repair parts! So I junk it if I can't fix it brand new or not! If I can't fix it why get stuck on the ocean and no mechanic? So learn how to fix it or junk it working or not! Gaskets can be made! Head gaskets carry spares! Repair parts are #1? Small mill drill lathe combo is a must on a boat in the ocean wire connectors! Veg oil is diesel! Whisky is gas diluted with gas, alcohol is fuel, cleaner, medical and antifreeze in a pinch! So buy multi use items! Learn to repair! A 2 hour course might make the difference o between swimming for help or floating into storm! Small hand crank seeing machine to repair sail! Bailing wire bubble gum tape and coverage filter works wonder! Motorcycle broke down! Took my sister cigarette broke off filter and used it to stop points from shorting out! Drove home 100 + out! Used 3m epoxy to fix boat hole 30 years ago! Still holding! Fisheries for a shifter! Nail for a shear key! So learn to repair

  10. Hey guys, another fantastic video!!!
    As a PADI instructor, I find BWRAF is easily remembered with Begin With Revue A Friend (BCD, Weights, Releases, Air, Final okay). It helps get focused on starting the dive and staying attentive to your dive buddy.

    Really a great adventure youโ€™re having. Really hoping to see you out there soon.

  12. Personally I dont think its the finger slipping off the button. That sounds like coincidence to me, as a Computer repair tech…Jack Baker

  13. Really doubt you can hurt the generator with the control panel

  14. great video as always I don't know what happened but I must have missed a lot of your videos and I wasn't getting notified but I'm glad I got to watch this one peace be safe Vegas bill

  15. Bad brushes would cause the AC loss. The brushes contact the rotor from the DC exciter, which generates your magnetic field. No field for the windings, means no AC power generated. Didnโ€™t know marine generators had brushes.

  16. I don't believe a finger slip could cause the system to fail. That would imply that you must hold the button for exactly the correct amount of time every time you try to start the generator. That doesn't seem reasonable.

  17. Nice vid again, I hope you got the genset repaired. Feel free to hit me up for proper advice when your electronics fail. Safe sailing

  22. Nice episode, guys. Instead of climbing the ladder with your gear on. Try hanging a lanyard in the water off the boat. Get out of your gear in the water and attach it to the lanyard. Then you can climb the ladder and then lift your gear out by the handle on the BCD.

  29. You probably fixed it by now but here is what was wrong with another mans: OK, after a weeklong business trip that kept me away from the RV but gave me some time to think about possible sources of the problem, I was able to solve the problem yesterday.

    It turns out it was a chaffed wire (CB2) coming out of the genset and feeding the transfer switch. The chaffing occurred right as the wires are leaving the genset in the sealtight connector coming out of the bottom of the genset. Before entering the sealtight connector, they come out of the control panel (and off of the CBs that kept popping) and go through a rubber "plenum" which allows for flex between the genset frame and the generator itself.

    Apparently, the black and yellow "CB2" wire had been free enough to rub on either the locknut on the sealtight connector or on something else nearby. It rubbed enough to get to the copper which then shorted to ground whenever the generator applied 120VAC to CB2. This caused the genset control board to shut down the power on that leg and gave the resultant "Fault 27."

    The repair was a couple of well placed pieces of shrink wrap as well as protecting the entire wire bundle coming out of the sealtight connecter with rubber, friction, and finally black electrical tape. I wanted to replace the entire wire but found it too be a bit too much of a challenge due to the lack of space in the sealtight. I'll check on the repair after a couple of trips but if I see anything strange from the genset, I'll know where to start!

    Thanks to all for the help in troubleshooting, I am now way too informed on how the Onan works and how the power is transmitted throughout the coach.

  30. To break the generator by just having you finger slip off the on button would mean it would have to be the worlds worst set up .

  34. Check the ohmsย on the "excitor winding.ย  That winding is what starts the rest of the voltage making process.ย  The ohms should be very low, only a few ohms, approx. 0.5 to 3.ย  If you have an open winding replace it.
