    Can someone explain to me the battery source for starting generator? Both my engines start fine, but my generator doesn't. The volt meter on panel drops big when I starting.

    Also, are sound shields available for 2004 ONAN's?

    Unless you have a mechanical issue such as hydro lock I suspect bad connections either positive or negative.

    Have you looked in your manual?
