Idol is fluctuating up-and-down I noticed on this last trip that I have a smell smells like propane but I can’t find any leaks my generator is making really weird noises fluctuating. I’m in Bullhead city I’m hoping it will stay together till Monday and I’ll see if I can find somebody in Vegas they can look at it right away since we’re full timers in our Monaco dynasty. Do you guys have any recommendations of who to take it to in Vegas it’s an on in 10,000 W thanks advance

Don,

There have been some members here who have posted in the past about really good RV repairs shops they have used in Vegas. I just don't recall the name(s) of the shops.

Maybe you can do a search of this site & see if you can located it. Otherwise here is a very useful web site that lists various service centers.

Shut the gas off!  I bought a gas detector/sniffer from Amazon for about $40 and tracked it to a faulty pressure regulator at the tank.

Propane smell is likely a leak at the regulator on the tank. ..recent thread on which regulator. 
Your diesel 10K generator is probably in need of a new fuel filter (cheapest place to start) but the electric fuel pump (Amazon has them) is also known to weaken and not supply enough fuel…10K should run at a constant speed.

So my regulator was the leak my brushes had to be replaced on the generator. That generator ran right up to the repair shop and stopped that was luck. Thank you all as always for you help.
