Get one of these
It will pretty much tell you all you need to know. I have one and it does a great job, you can also find out how much current each of your appliances use.

BTW--propane engines have carburetors.

Re: Need some Multimeter help

that cheap harbor freight meter wouldn't work, the meter has to specifically say HERTZ, I have a Fluke 78 that is specifically made for automotive work and has hertz and I love it for setting my welder and generator RPM's . Sounds like a governor setting, my Onan "hunts" a little bit when cold, just is a choke adjustment on mine. sportyrick

Re: Need some Multimeter help

I have a gas generator that had a carb problem that did the same thing. I ended up replacing the carb and its all good. I dont want to call your carb an issues but I would say its carb related even if its an adjustment.
