I have picked up a C-Gen generator with I believe the same Kubota engine, Not positive but have heard same engines from the same plant some painted yellow?. I have a pile of wires for a future project to sort but anyhow I tried to see the alternator no. but tag is to far gone but did notice a ND stamping and take that as nipondenso, ( possibly call a tractor salvage yard). as 800.00 is gold money in my book and way out of line . Do you have a picture of that Gen.
When the gen is running it is not charging the start batteries, and they have a draw from some items in the bus that is not wired thru your whatever the generator is powering - inverter, house bats, etc.. I think im on the same page with ya.
I need a new one but a digital volt ohm meter " having min - max readings" capability is super and especially walking a 40'bus, and or a helper watching the readings while testing each of the possible gen start wires when in the bus buttons or whatever you might have for remote switches are operated.
Im working another project now but am very interested in your wiring as mine is I think very much the same yet everything was cut.
You say you received a customer wiring pdf, that would show several things like motor items. Some don't put to much other because all bus builders are different or use other brands.
Good Day

I do not think I would put a start cap in series with the ptc. You are looking to reduce the starting current and the cap will do that but it will also reduce the current thru the ptc and that will cause it to keep the start winding energized longer while it heats up.

Go with a Potential relay and a cap around 110 MFD.  Even the 3 wire all in one Hard Starts are sometimes flakey. As far as picking a potental relay, thats a tough one as the compressor was never speced to use one. Mars (and others) do offer an adjustable relay so you can tweek your pick up and drop out voltages.

That's the wet tank on a 5A.
That's interesting. That is the dry tank on the 5C and is behind a metal wall in the last bay on the driver side. I pulled the wall out and put a pull drain on it and a gauge on top so I can check tank against tank. My wet tank is in the front axle wheel well area on the wall and is easy to loosen the straps that hold it but the top has very short fittings that are extremely tough to get to without taking out the floor above first.

The folks at Southeast Power Systems in Orlando finished what we started with the electrical system.  I think they did a great job.

I hate to agree about the price, but I know of a 75%-finished '89 Prevost with two slides that would go for not that much more.  It's listed over on the BNO, with a little interest.  I wasn't sure if I was allowed to put up this kind of post on this forum or not to help move it along.

It's basically a give-away resale market for these things, so I wish you luck.

Cheers, John

I do believe it is the wet tank. It is loaded directly in front of rear tires. It does have a drain, which I drain faithfully. I think 46 tears has finally taken its toll. Thanks for help
