Re: Winnebago Generator Access by Robert
Post New Message Looking at the genset's engine from the access door, it appears that the cylinders are horizontally opposed, running front and aft (side-to-side of the RV). I can see a little of the front cylinder head fins, and the oil filler/cap is to the right and at the bottom. Extending from the oil filler block is a right angle down-pipe which terminates with a petcock. This would be the oil drain. I can't, however, seem to locate the oil filter. I can see some of the front of the unit, which contains the front cylinder, but is covered by a sheet metal cover/shroud with the Onan ID tag riveted to it. I can unscrew the screws holding this cover, but I can't seem to remove this shroud in order to get a better look, as there is not enough clearance to do so. The top of the unit contains the carb setup, spark wires, and exhaust ports. The right side is mated to the generator setup, and the left side is taken up by the exhaust down-pipe. My only other guess is that the oil filter is mounted on the bottom of the engine, since this would be a logical location for an oil filter, but the Onan's manual shows the oil filter to be on the front side of the unit located to the lower left corner next to the front cylinder head/fins. Any ideas?
