Welcome to GT Talk.
I am sure someone will be along shortly to help you out.
IMHO, you got about 199 hours more than many folks get out of a Onan engine, never liked them and don't see that changing anytime soon.
$500 carburetors spoiled them for me.

Those engines are highly regarded by many. What seems to have soured folks is the high price and limited availability of parts. At this point in time many of these engines have a lot of hours on them and even the well maintained ones are getting long in the tooth. You can at least carefully disassemble it and figure out what happened. If it's that cam bearing again then you need a better solution this time around. A properly rebuilt engine should go for 1000hrs if looked after.
