    Re: White/grey smoke from Onan 20kw genset after 4 months disuse.

    I had an 8KW that would skip and miss a bit after a lay up. Once I ran it a while under load it smoothed right up.

    If you still need help, try Paco Generators (786) 287-4861. Never used him but recommended by a dock neighbor

    I tried running it under a load and the smoke cleared up for a while (5 mins) and then the unit bogged down and died filling the generator room with oily smoke. So, we have shelved plans for the Bahamas and now will leave for Jax and our go-to service shop: Lambís Yacht Center. We will stop for two nights at Halifax Harbor in Daytona to visit a friend along the way. We have a couple of minor issues with a 32v Sentry charger and a dead VIP exhaust fan (itís behind the washer/dryer!) so we will get those sorted too and then head north for the Chesapeake. Next Spring we will try the Bahamas again!

    Let me know when you are in the area and I'll take you all to dinner courtesy of the HOF. You can even bring Randy if you see him hitchhiking.

    We would like that. We plan on stopping in Annapolis to eat at one of our favorite places: El Cabrito. Isnít that where you are?
