Okay, here it is. Please bear with the long narrative but I'm very confused. I have a 2002 Pace Arrow purchased used 3 years ago and have put about 15,000 miles on it. In July we went to Cedar Point, Ohio for a week and stayed at a KOA where I was had electric hookup. While getting ready to leave, my generator wouldn't start. I checked everything but was not getting any gas to the generator. I checked the in line filter but nothing was coming out of the tank. The fuel pump was working fine and yes, I had 3/4 tank of gas in the RV. Gave up and headed home with 3 adults, 2 grandchildren and 4 dogs with only the dash a/c working. Quite warm.
Upon returning to Chicago, I immediately brought it to Camping World of Island Lake (where I had purchased it and where it had been originally sold). Prior to getting there, I topped off the gas tank and one last time I tried starting the generator...it started. Left it there for service and was told that the gas line leading into the tank was dry rotted and couldn't suck gas. I was told that the fuel line entered the tank from the top and connected to a metal fill tube that went into the tank about 3/4 down which kept it from running empty with the generator. OK, but why did it start when I had topped it off. They had no explanation. They had to drop the gas tank in order to replace the line.
So, now I pick up the RV and head to Wisconsin for a few days...I start the generator in order to run the coach a/c while driving. As soon as I start the engine, the a/c begins to shed and won't work, The fan and heater work on the unit but it won't handle the a/c. I return it for service and after a few days pick it up and was told that the circuit breakers on the generator had been wired incorrectly and now it was fixed. I had only been operating on 30 amps and now both breakers 30 and 20 were properly hooked up. From the beginning, 3 years ago, I was told I could only run 1 of the 2 roof units while on the generator. Now I can run both at the same time and they are running fine. I thought my r/v was a 30 amp...the shore plug is a 30 amp...now apparently I am running 50 amp on the generator. Now if that isn't enough, on the way home, I stop to top off the tank and after getting to about 3/4 full I'm at the pump and I start spilling gas from somewhere under the rv, probably the vent.......Oh the joy. It is going in Monday locally for oil change, etc, and they will check the gas tank. I like and trust Camping World and will continue to go there but nobody could explain these problems to me.
I have a Onan Marquis gold 5500 generator and the RV is on a workhorse chassis.
Please, can someone explain to me what happened...Thank You
