Westhaver is shut down
The folks that make the autostart circuitry for our rigs and others have stopped making them and are closing (have closed) their doors. Their website is still up for info, but that's about it.

Phillip,

That sounds like a bad voltage regulator.

Yep, it is in a difficult place to access but it can be done. You don't have many options but to crawl in there or pull the whole generator out further. Many owners have relocated that voltage regulator to near the stop/start box for easier access next time.
