Normally I ALWAYS let it run for a few before turning anything on. I even do that with my 25KW genny. In this case I was screwing around with some new gear and just screwed up by not checking the fuel. I would normally be on the big genny and dont have to pay attention to fuel. It was the hunt in the last second or two before it completely shut down that caused the issue.
It was only the Yamaha console and Yamaha monitors that have the hidden (requires complete disassembly to change) fuses. My Driverack has the combo socket and fuse holder with a spare fuse. Guess Yamaha figures we would pay for them to change a fuse.
