This ne wproduct released yesterday might have some relevance for a segment of the RV population.

Note: Cummins is dropping the names like Onan but apparently they haven't quite master it yet since one will note the URL still uses Onan

Here is the announcement on name changes

In the coming months, Cummins will be consolidating our many brands under one unified name and logo.  This should make it easier for our customers to determine what it is that they are looking for, by providing a clear and consistent branding standard.

The changes you may notice include dropping the names:

Cummins ReCon
Cummins Marine
Cummins Power Rent (and Rental Power)
Cummins Onan
Nelson
Fleetguard Emission Solutions

In their place we will be using:

Cummins Filtration
Cummins Turbochargers
Cummins Alternators
Cummins Emissions Solutions
Cummins Fuel Systems
Cummins Power Generation

I have always wondered about why the brand name of Onan was used, especially when one considers the ancient practice of onanism  ???

No mystery there, Steve. The Onan Company was founded by David Onan and still bore his name when Cummins acquired it about 15 years ago. Changing the name of the Onan products  is just the final stage of Onan's  integration into the Cummins Corp.

The last step in integration: Throw away the industry recognized nameplate that was a good part of what you purchased.
