This is in an rv. Was running fine driving a roof top a/c unit and suddenly shut down. Tried to restart but would not stay running unless I held the start button on.
Good girl pressure, lots of oil, sitting level , New low pressure oil switch. Out of guesses!!
Anybody out there help?? Please!!!!!!

Excuse my ignorance but how would I go about doing that if it won't run?

Press the start button and hold it. When the engine starts running continue to hold the start button while someone else measures the AC voltage. Perform this test quickly.

An outlet, at the panel, pull the generator apart and back of the breaker, something like that. It's not always easy and quick but the actual volts out can tell a lot about what is wrong.

Is the RV plugged in? Need to make sure you were not just reading the utility. Does your RV use a automatic or a manual switch to go from shore to gen? Unplug it either way.

Need to get consistent measurement on the AC output.
