Batteries must be well maintained and kept fully charged. Inspection and testing is extremely important to avoid any start problems.
Ensure your fuel is not degrading and is not becoming contaminated, this can pose a risk to power in critical applications and is something that should be maintained to prolong the life of your generator.
The level of coolant must be constantly checked, similarly with engine oil. The exterior of the coolant must also be checked to prevent any grime or dirt.
It is important to monitor the exhaust system, fuel system, and the engine. Any visible leaks must also be fixed to prevent any hazards.
