I know these things are a little finicky... But for the life of me I can't figure this out...
Two days ago: In the breaker box / switch panel I set the power selector to "Gen", I flipped the top generator
switch to the on position. The exhaust
fan ran for about 5 minutes then the generator
kicked in. It sounded like any engine
should, and produced enough power for the entire boat without hesitation. after 30 seconds, the lights dimmed and the generator slowly sputtered out. It would not start up again.
Now, I follow the exact same routine, the fan blows, stops, and then nothing. There's absolutely no noise
coming from the generator. When I flip the switch on the actual generator from auto to ON, I still don't get anything. Is there anything i can do to manually start the generator, or at least diagnose the problem?
Note: The lights and fridge were on to draw power from the system.
