So AC output from genny connects inside that junction box?
There's also a heavy black wire coming into cabinet with the quick connect wiring/plug????
The battery compartment is up front on the side but looks like there's no holes in the genny compartment to run battery connection thru. Might be pain in the *ss.
Looks like fuel line is in with fuel tank and carbon canister.
Also the carbon canister - where does that connect on generator?
Any input would help.
Yep, I installed an Onan 5500 LP in my 2017 Eagle 293RKDS. It was slightly used with 6 hours.
Yes the genset output leads will splice into the coach wiring in the junction box. The onan should have a section of liquid tight on it to connect to the box.
The harness you mention plugs into the Onan for the remote start panel.
You can run the battery cables under the trailer. I ran mine across the front bottom on the compartment inside. I had room for them. Eagles are set up different in the front company.
The Onan manual should tell you about the carbon can. I never had the pleasure to work on an onan with emission devices yet.
Your framing under the wood panel it made for the onan footprint. It's pretty much plug and play but the exhaust.
I highly recommend using several CO detectors, especially for gasoline gensets and if you plan to run it while sleeping.
