I would search the internet for the model you want and see who has the best price local to you to save on shipping costs.

You sure that is not just a single phase system. Have not seen one that small with 2 phase. As stated find something close that has good shipping if possible.

What happened to it? I know it's not what you asked, but just curious what happened that would make replacing cheaper than repairing.

Most ONAN RV generators are single phase 2 branch. (Both legs same)

I do know Onan makes 120/240 volt generators (I have worked on one) but I've not seen one in RV use (The one I worked on was a soft serve ice cream truck).


Home is where I park it.

Check Craigslist. You will often find used ones on them from RV's being totaled/scrapped.

Well Camper Dave, It no longer will run both A/C and often not even one. We haven't found anyone here in N.Texas to work on one. It is 21 years old and when working perfect...it was loud! thanks for listing to my rant.
