How to Make RV Generators Run Quietly How to Make RV Generators Run Quietly
It is very important, that RV generators run properly, both for your safety and that of your RV. If you find that yours has been noisy, here are a few steps that you can take to quiet it down, while ensuring that there isn't any damage.
Step 1 – Check Manual
Before checking anything else, refer to your RV’s manual and make sure that you have the right generator for your make and model. If you are operating with a generator that isn’t specifically made for your RV, there is a good chance that this is the source of the noise. This happens a lot when you purchase a used RV.
Step 2 – Check for Damage
Once you verify that the generator is correct, check to make sure there isn’t debris or damage done to it. Always make sure that the RV is completely off and has had a chance to cool before working with it. Use a rag to clean while you inspect. Look for any dirt build up, clogs and leaks. Clean or make replacements if necessary.
Step 3 – See Mechanic
If the noise continues, bring your RV into a mechanic. It is best to resolve the problem right away than let it continue and grow worse.
