My 2001 39' Bounder is leaking fuel from the Gen I to date have been unable to find that rascal.

Where do you think it is most likely to be found?

If the RV came with the generator installed as original equipment it probably draws fuel from the RV fuel tank.

How well does the Onan run, does it act flooded
Check the carb for a bad float
Check fuel hose to carb, might find a crack


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !

Are you saying the new fuel line is not producing fuel to the carb?

We have to be missing something here.

Title says DIESEL Onan Generator.

And comments by others as well as OP are discussing carburetors/gasoline issues.

Please tell us exactly what generator you have. And, is the problem a fuel leak and/or a no start.

If no start, how far into the "run" cycle do you get:
Fuel pump clicks?
generator turns over at low or normal speed?
generator starts and runs or dies?

^Yup, pretty sure it's fuel injected. Thanks for getting the crowd back on track.

As for diagnosis help, OP, please describe your issue in as clear of detail as possible.
"found it. alternat is no producing" does not help anyone help you.
