I have been running my gen set off and on over the last month  because I some times go out and take a shower before I go home or I have a mid after noon meeting,  my webasto isn't working at this time.  I have noticed that when I run the Ac's on heat mode the HZ is 60.2 and the voltage drops to 110, should I adjust the voltage regulator for a higher volt out put and how would I do that. I have a 4 cylinder Kubota with a 13Kw Marathon gen end.

Thanks

Don

Don I wouldn't worry about it.  60.2 hertz won't hurt a thing- higher frequency than 60 hz is ok- it's when it drops below 60 that you can get in trouble.
 And 110 volts is within spec of most everything.   So just leave it I think, and you'll be fine

Sounds like the coach was wired with too small wire gauge (what a surprise!).  Small wire is one of the ways you get resistance in the wiring that lowers the voltage.  110 volts with 60.2 hz is just fine.  Maybe one of those old ex railroad 2-71 generators would be the fix.  Good Luck, TomC

Ned; It's here for you, I think that we could DDEC it with about 250HP and run a Allison 3000MH that should get it down the road.
Then again if you want to really get trick we could take a Duramax pump it up to around 550HP with the 2000MH Allison change to heaver axles front and back with bigger brakes. What do think I'm game how bout you.

Tom C you are correct about the wiring  being to small, I have been up grading from 2-Gauge to 4/0 and 2/0 om my batt runs and the main feed panel, I still need to change out some more of the 2-gauge to 2/0 asap.
