recommendations for a new generator?

Unread postby Zed on Sat Dec 24, 2016 11:41 pm

I need a new gen for my 1971 270, the original was gone when I bought it. It looks like the original was a 220v generator since the original panel looks like it takes a 220c source and splits it into 2 110v circuits. Anyways I'm hoping someone has a recommendation for a modern replacement. Looking for something electric start, quieter, 220v that can be converted to run off the main fuel tank, maybe by putting a generic electric fuel pump inline. There are a few Onan microquiet 4000w gens used on craigslist, but they all appear to be 110v. Thanks.

It is a good possibility that it was a 6K or 6.5k genset. our 76 has an Onan NH 6.0 which can run both AC units and the Panel looks like a 220v one. The 50 amp cors feeds 220 into the coach but the 30A adapter feeds the same 120 leg down both legs.
