No
a fuse is there to protect the circuit and the genset
check why the de-icer is pulling so many amps as the problem may be in that unit
a 10 amp outlet has a maximum current capacity of 10 amps as that is the current allowable from the gen set and wire capacity
even if you had an outlet with 15 amp rating , it would still be blowing fuses as the 16 amps is above the allowable current draw
you would need a 20 amp outlet ( difficult to get unless it is in a house power board and are normally reserved for hot water systems , stoves and other high current usage units and are normally then not outlets but hard wired in to a circuit breaker

Testimonial: "Yes, the de-icer is shorted. But it is not an available part. Don't see the use for it , I don't use the RV in cold weather . Seems like I should be able to unhook the power to the heater and run the set without the de-icer"

There are several fuses. All are 3AG size. On the Rectifier board you need:
F1=10 Amp 32V
F2=3/4 AMP, 250V SLO-BLOW
F3=4 Amp, 32V
F4=5 Amp, 32V
F5=20 Amp, 32V
F6=3 Amp, 32V SLO-BLOW

On the solenoid driver board you need:
F1=3/16 Amp

How do you seperate a kohler motor from generator on a miller welder?


if by asking this im assuming the generator is face bolted to motor , if this is so , to save from having another front bearing , the gen stator is directed attached to motor shaft , on the far end under end bell cover is the end of shaft , a long bolt goes thru gen shaft to screw into motor shaft , MARK/photograph all the wires you unhook helps a lot when puting back together

Kohler 20resal 100amp transfer switch RXT will not auto start?


Disconnect generator remote start wires in the ATS. Put an ohm meter across the remote start terminals in the ATS and kill utility power, you should here a click in the ATS and the ohm meter should indicate close to zero ohms. If it does then your ATS is fine and the problem is gen control board or wiring between the two. If it does not show that value, then the start relay in the ATS is suspect.

Kohler RXT won,t start Kohler 20resa


Did you check the remote terminals and relay in the ATS, disconnect gen remote wires, kill the ATS brealer and ohm across the start terminals, they should close, if not a relay/control board issue, if they do fault is in wiring or gen control, or incorrect wiring

Is there power at the gen? The transfer switch may not be transferring power over from gen. Check it at the gen first thing.
