RE: Onan Microlite 4000 Generator Issue

fill the gas tank at least 3/4 full of fresh GAS, the pickup tube for the generator is located approximately at the 1/4 full level, this is so running the generator will Not leave you stranded with an empty GAS tank, once gas gets below that level the generator will not run , it has no GAS, also check the oil level in the generator, they have Low oil sensor, that will shut down the generator

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

Btw. Quick short update a test, with the pump in the rear, and using the 'generators' fuel pickup the engine stated, ran, no problems, pushing fuel toward the engine, works better than sucking it forward Having a Tag axle makes for headaches trying to attach to the OEM line this far back

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

Yes some did That scenario doesn't work with this RV construction and floor plan Cutting a hole in my floor, above the tank Would open into the basement area where the black and gray tanks are, I would need to cut a hole in that floor also, provided the plumbing was not in the way

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

Yeah I know the generator pickup is at a differing level in the tank, and a smaller diameter line, but it might help In diagnosis and decision making I wasn't thinking about the pump having a check valve There goes that idea Thanks for reminding me

RE: Cheap way to isolate and charge gel cell- relay or diode ?

1972 Revcon Old Magtek converter A diode is not going to do what you want Either get a different battery Or Install a different converter Even then you have to deal with the alternator voltage , Unless you disconnect the house from the alternator/isolator/combiner And have no charging to the gel battery while engine is running Are you sure it says GEL on the battery And not Sealed AGM ? Many people come on here calling any sealed battery Gel AGM does not require any special treatment, other than a slightly higher max charging voltage, Much better suited to RV use than Gel

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

New fuel pressure regulator Spring 2019, Before I installed the external fuel pump, At least that seems to be doing its job I did not know the fuel return was connected at the pressure regulator, The chassis manual I have does not make that clear, At least for me, with my lack of experience with these systems, It does not show the system as a diagram, It has drawings of component locations You have to already know how it works, and what you are looking for and looking at, Really appreciate the help I get here

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

I'm cashed strapped , don't have a $1000 too drop the 70+ gallon tank and install a new in tank pump ( there goes the stimulus check , IF it ever arrives ) I'm going to try blowing compressed air back thru the main fuel line, I might even try a test, connecting to The generator pickup tube, My biggest priority until now, was to get airlifts installed at the drive axle

RE: Calling Computer Video Buffs..

X2 for video help forum Another program is Avi2Dvd It converts most pc video formats to DVD I have used it extensively in the paste, but very little: the past year I still have it and use it, just not as much as before I am not using anything else instead, just not creating as many DVD from self produced camera video,

Where did the Gas go ?

Apparently there is a clog in the fuel pickup in the tank and or the In Tank Pump has finally gone to pieces, Last year I installed an external inline pump on the frame Right now little too no fuel is reaching this pump, In a bid to move the RV to another location close by, I connected the input of this external pump to a gas can "hillbilly style", And pulled the power fuse of the OEM in the tank pump It started and ran, but it pumped 3 gallons of gas from the can in a few minutes, going less than one mile, No fuel was spilled, No external leaks, No fuel on the frame, or the engine, or the ground/street, No fumes, No smell, Is it possible the fuel somehow went thru the return lines into the tank ? Or Maybe dumped into the engine by a blown open injector ? 1996 Ford 460, F53 RV chassis

RE: Calling Computer Video Buffs..

You don't want to burn the mp4 file to CD You need to Author a DVD, and yes that is what the process is called The mp4 is turned into a Set of Vob files and and other associated files that are used for indexing chapters and scenes used for DVD format That collection of files is burned to a DVD disc to create a DVD that will play on any DVD player This is a multi step process, even if the software of choice is a one button click The first step is the conversion into DVD files Which then get turned into a DVD image file Which then gets burned to the DVD disc

RE: Solar Charging and Amp Hours

A 120w panel does not output 10amps Out put it more like 7 amps Full Working voltage of a 12v panel is around 17v, Output from the controller is 14.x to properly charge the battery 12v won't charge a battery, a battery at 12v is only 50% charged/capacity

RE: CDC and the government may be loosening the lockdown

IMO the ineffectiveness of the flu shot is because the cdc chooses the strains Too Early and don't have the correct ones in the vaccine That said when i was much younger (young adult), i got really sick from the flu several times

RE: Solar Panel Charge Waveform

When would a solar controller not be regulating power?During bulk phase That would depend on the output voltage of the panel, Bulk voltage is higher, but is not equal to panel voltage, which is usually above 17v even fully loaded, if in good sun

RE: HBO free streaming for April

If you goto Collections Click on free no subscription You can see the list of free shows I've been able to play the trailers But the series them selves, give me an error, can't play that video right now IDK if that is systems overload, or other problem I'm not using the app yet Will try that next
