Generator ventilation

I just installed an Onan 30 amp micro quiet genny. Now I have to figure out how much natural ventilation it needs or do I hook up a fan motor, I have in installed in a metal box, half genny, half batteries, with a partition , any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
lid is a diamond plate toolbox lid, so I really cant cut into that

Re: Generator ventilation

My POS Onan has the fresh air intake on the "face" of the genny... exhaust runs out the bottom. I have screened vents in the enclosure door.

Re: Generator ventilation

I''ll take pics tomorrow. It's dark out and it's doing NM's version of rain. Always smells nasty when it does. I'm told it the ozone in the air... smells like I have a hot electrical outlet or breaker.

Onan MicroLITE 2.8KW. Not a microQUIET. The vent air is on the left (you can see it in the pic) and the same end.

Re: Generator ventilation

They normally use an intake and exhust for cool air. If you get an instalation manual there is a diagram on air inlet and exhaust.
