Default Could use a little info for Onan 2.5LK

I have the a fore mentioned generator and I am looking for a wiring diagram for the wiring in the gen output box. It looks like someone was in there messing about and I'd like to clean it up and replace the old wiring.
The unit runs and puts out but I'm not sure exactly how it should be wired to the receptacles as there are none.
I'd like to use this one at camp as it is relatively quiet compared to the construction generator we have been using. Briggs engine is noisy!! We need something that can be run all night and I think this one will do it.
Any downloadable manuals available for this unit?
Thanks for any help.

Sorry, didn't intend to ignore this. Been way too busy lately.
I glanced at the schematic real quick so I'm not sure about it yet. The picture appears to be a little older than mine? Not sure. My box is long, narrow and squared off. I'll have to see if I can get a decent pic of it tonight.
Thanks!!

My pix are from a 2.5LK-RV. May be the same wiring, even if box is different. I have a couple of other pix, too.

I can take picture of the box on the 2.5LK that I just acquired. It has a long rectangle control box. It appears to be pretty much unmolested in the wiring dept. The generator is not at the house, so it may be this evening before I can post a picture.

Just took a few pics of it and looked at the model # again.
It is a 2.5LK-1R/6000 H whatever exactly that means.

Not sure how younse do the fancy thumbnail thing on this forum but here are some links to the pics I just took.









Thanks for the replies

Also kinda curious what the 4 parts in the left of the photo are. I circled them in different colors so you could tell the dumb guy by color code. LOL

The wires are kinda frazzled on some of the connections and I'd like to know what I'm playing with before I discombobulate something I can't fix.
Really curious about that gizmo in the orange circle and why the part in the middle would move??

A couple of pages from a parts catalog. Not all models have all listed parts.
