The Cummins Onan QG4000 is a great entry level product for RV generators. This model features Cummins Onan 4-Cycle OHV engine for the most electrical output for your dollar.

If you are looking for a no-frills design or watching your expenses this will definitely get the job done, but might not give you the peaceful experience you were looking for.

This unit is ideal for light and medium use applications and will handle all of your basic power needs.
This unit is a reliable value... more

Short Life Span Considering It's $1000 More Than Generac
Have had several generators over the years but none as disappointing as this one and I'm not the only one. The engine parts of the generator has been great but unfortunately the electrical end has not. The plastic part of the rotor came apart inside the generator and took out the electrical end of the generator. A closer look at the design and its hard to believe this is a Cummins product.
Cons: Low Quality, Expensive

Never Again
The motor home that we purchased came with an Onan generator. It was faulty and was replaced (under warranty) within the first 6 months. The replacement generator was rarely used and we just paid over $1,000 to find out that the motor is no good and would cost $4,000 to replace (motor only). As far as I am concerned, Onan generators are junk.

Onan 4000 Pos Generator
After cleaning the carburetor and now replacement of a carburetor. Then a high frequency fault on a $3,000 generator that has less then 40 hrs on it. At the most it sat for 2 months, yes the manuals say to run every month, but I also have a $400 generator that can sit for more then months at a time and I have never had a issue with it. Thought it would be nice not to have to carry the portable generator when we go camping. So when I bought a new RV I wanted a generator with the vehicle, when... more

Can Be A Problem
Bought a used MoHome w/ unknown hours on Generator. Worked fine for 12 months, then $1400 in the next 6 mo. Bought a new one, worked fine for 15 mo., then the manufacturer had it torn down and reassembled under warranty. Worked fine for 12 mo. until hour limit exceeded. then $1100.

Worked 30 hrs. and $1300 ($400 me /$900 dealer write off). Constant warning by shop guys- too much usage!!! Good when NEW, but just not made for extended purposes. When warantee runs out, so does your financial... more

Sorry you've had a negative experience thus far. We are happy to help get this resolved and get you in contact with your local distributor (Cummins Power South). We suggest you bring in your motor home along with any service records/ maintenance logs, inform them of the loads you are running and conditions you run the motor home/generator in.

Ran For Two Hours
Took me awhile to get it installed. The installation of it is straight forward as long as you have basic skills.

Went out for the first time WA and was really enjoying it. Then lights started flickering and the generator died. 2 hours. Sure warranty but now I had to take it back out and then the closest service center is 33 miles away.

It is on the way to get serviced now so we will see. I will post updates.

We're sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Of the units purchased from Electric Generators Direct, we've had no complaints, but even the greatest brands can have problems at times.

Best of luck, and we hope you're able to make good use of it again soon.

Running Again
Follow up to my first review.

Got it back in. Took 2 hours to get it out. Service was great. It was the brushes. Got it back (closest service place was 35 miles away). 45 minutes to re-install and running fantastic now.

There is always a chance of problems, it is how a company reacts when it does happen which is important. Cummins took care of it well. Thanks

Quiet Power
I ordered a Jayco class C MH . When ordering, I was given the two choises of a Generac 5000 versus an Onan 4000 micro quiet. If you can stand beside the Generac and carry on a conversation, you have better lungs than I do. Generac offers a lifetime on the fan belt that powers from the engine to generator. A belt that can fail after hard use. Go with the Onan 4000 and feel comfortable. Once again......SUPER SMOOTH AND QUIET.

I like the generator I have recently purchased for my horse trailer with living quarters. It is very quiet and we had a good time this weekend when we took it out.
