To enjoy the greatest amount of electrical power you would want at home, you must occasionally service your motorhome generator, just like you would with any other component in your travel trailer.

It would be preferable if you regularly serviced your motorhome generator; this would relieve you of the financial load and would also lengthen the generator's useful life. Maybe you're still unsure of when to have the generator in your car serviced. In that situation, this article is here to assist you. To learn more, continue reading.

Reasons to service your motorhome generator

  • - Stops your generator from malfunctioning just when you need it.

  • - Reduce expenses

  • - Increases the generator's lifespan

  • - To prevent unforeseen incidents, such as overheating, a lack of output, and diminished performance.

Maintenance and servicing tips

  • - All generators for motorhomes should have an hour metre, which keeps track of how long the generator has been running. Try to always keep an eye on it. The generator, like your motorhome engine, utilises oil to lubricate its various moving parts, necessitating a periodic oil change.

  • - The details from the hour metre dictate how frequently the oil should be changed; it is important to keep track of the generator to prevent any future troubles. Manufacturers recommend changing the oil in your new generator every 45–55 hours, and then every 145–155 hours after that, however this largely relies on the type of motorhome generator your motorhome has.

  • - When changing the oil, it is advised to replace the oil filter and top off the coolant levels because they can have an impact on the RV generator's performance.

  • - The covers are arranged to support airflow, so any careless movement could wind up harming the engine. Don't remove the covers, not even the major ones, while the generator is operating; you won't be able to cool it down that way.

  • - Visually checking your generator at least once a month is the easiest way to maintain and service it. You must check the generator in your car to make sure it is dry and clean, and that there are no obvious problems, such as leaks, corrosion, or cracks that would point to a more serious issue.

  • - Replace the air filter on the generator frequently. Around every 380–400 hours, or more frequently in filthy or dusty environments, the air filter needs to be changed. The generator in your car will function worse if you don't replace your air filter when it's either worn out or dusty.

  • - Every 440 hours, service and replace the spark plug in your motorhome generator. Your vehicle’s generator will cease working if the spark plug has a problem because it is the spark plug that generates the power that keeps the engine running.

  • - Properly store the generator in your car. You must keep your generator clean, well-maintained, and in good working order when storing it.

  • - To avoid missing or going past the generator's service date, you might make a maintenance schedule to keep track of the time you service the generator.

  • - Create an upkeep schedule for your generator.
