Good afternoon Ben,

Thanks for the reply, I definitely would not adjust with the genset on.
I just had to put a new Control Board so I know the price…

is there any way you could take a picture of that screw? Or give me direction on the pictures below?

Is the screw on the control board?
If so, here is a pictures of mine:
http://nikimat.com/onan_board.jpg

If not, here is a pictures of my Control Box:

Also, I have the MDKAL not sure it makes a difference.

Thanks in advance!

Alex,Great looking installation of
Blue Sea meter.  It's easy to adjust voltage on Onan.
 On bottom of control box - on board facing up - is a very
small screw covered with a rubberized barrier ( you need to
peel a small amount off to turn screw).  With a very very
small screw driver turn screw clockwise to increase voltage
and counter clockwise to reduce voltage.   After turning
screw about 1/2 turn I ran gen-set to check volts. You
likely will need do this several times.  I did read you
could make adjustment with generator running but thought
this not a good idea for me.  If you drop screwdriver in
energized box you could be buying new control board.  No
joy!

Mine is putting 250.8 volts… kind of coincide since I
replaced the exhaust elbow.

I thought in 50 hertz it was 1500 rpm and 1800 rpm for the
60 hz, but could be wrong.



Ben, how were you able to adjust the voltage from the
control box?

I installed the Blue Sea AC Multimeter, here is the
illustration if interested (should be similar for any
multimeters)

Thanks Bill .  I will check out light

source as well as meter.  I have been thinking a Cruz
Pro

or maybe Blue Sea would be invaluable.  Especially in
older

marinas where you could experience low or high voltage
and

be unawares.  I did put a multi meter on my generator
and

found it was putting out only 200 vac.  I was able to
go

into control box and adjust upward to 220 vac.  A

permanently installed meter would have informed me much

sooner.  Ben

Ben,

The Green 220VAC light on BeBe has

gotten dimmer with age. I have not looked, but I am
guessing

it is a 220VAC LED.



This,

or something similar would likely work:

https://www.amazon.com/Power-Indicator-Pilot-Single-Light/dp/B00DUW2NSC



You may

want to consider installing something more than a bulb,

which really tells you nothing.

I installed a CruzPro VAF110. It is

a TriData meter that tells me Volts, Amps being
consumed,

and Frequency (50 or 60htz). http://www.cruzpro.com/vaf110.html

You can see where I installed it

here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/photos/albums/1112519422/lightbox/935875563?orderBy=ordinal&sortOrder=asc&photoFilter=ALL#zax/935875563

This gives me data on shore power

and on generator power, which ever source is delivering

power to the main AC breaker box.

I am sure that there are other

meters/gauges that do the same thing.

Best,

Bill

Has anyone had the AC panel green light fail? 

Mine failed -  lots of Power from genset or shore but
no

light.  I assume it is small 220v AC bulb.  Can anyone

recommend a source ?
