If you have a new 2500 l p generator. the dipstick sits behind what I think is a L P gas regulator, it is very hard to unscrew the dipstick because raised part of the dipstick hits a screw in the regulator. I have to pull on (what I believe) is a regulator and then twist the dipstick real hard to get it out go the filler tube. A dealer installed the generator not the camper factory are all new onan generators like this?

I replaced my old Onan 2500 with the new one.
I think the addition of the propane was an after thought.
Yep, the dip stick is a pain in the butt.

The exhaust exits caddy corner from where the original one did
and the wiring harness is different and takes an harness adapter
that Cummins/Onan offers for about $28.

I'm pretty sure the generator was made in China and is some cheap knock off
disguised to look like the original Cummins/Onan 2500.

It does start and run just fine. The RPMs only take a small dip when I fire up the AC.

I hope this one lasts longer than the 200 hours that were on the original generator when the stator and armature puked.
