I had to go look. Thought that was my Onan. Mine was still here.

Mine had about 100 hours and would not start when went to exercise test.
Further testing revealed no oil pressure. Could not believe I found the Oil pump gears broken with clean oil in the unit.

I exercise the unit at least once a month, usually two times a month and all at once the carb clogged, even with a inline fuel filter and non-ethanol fuel. Have to unbolt manifold to remove carb. Good cleaning with low pressure air only and back together and ok again.
I trust the non-portable Onan as compared to my other PORTABLE gens.
If it's mechanical Murphy's Law can strike at any time.
If it's China made you are inviting trouble. (Murphy's Law is built in)
