Thanks again to everyone. I have an appointment on Monday ( 6-29) at CoachCare in Coburg. I'll post a result.

As an aside, I've decided to replace my 6 volt Lifeline (gpl 4ct) batteries which are now 5 years old. I did a quick check of prices online and found one site that quoted $285 and included delivery. I asked the CoachCare for a price quote. He called me back and stated $515 ea. "No thanks" said I. I told him about the price online and he was very surprised.
He called me back about 20 minutes later and said he made a mistake and had quoted a price for "D" batteries and the ones I wanted were $300.
I'm getting new batteries.
Is there anything to check out on these batteries? I know tires have a mfg. date.

Chris, batteries have a date code just like tires and a host of other items. I would recommend checking the date code and ensuring it is relatively close, for something like batteries, I would want a date code no more than 6 months old, of course the closer to todays date, the better.

Chris.... Did you take your coach in and have the gen fixed? I'm having the same problem and am very interested in the solution.

Thanks.

Chris- You didn't happen to find out where the sending unit is located, did you?

E-mike: No I did not and what's the sending unit anyway?

Try this one: When we came out of the service bay at the end of the day yesterday the satellite dish (TracStar) would not work and the tv (37" Panasonic Plasma) died. The appointment today resulted in a new rooftop dish ($1100) and a new Samsung 37" LCD ($1200). I have stimulated the economy of Eugene. It's time to go to Trout Lake, WA.

temperature sending unit that signals shut down cuz of overheating; probably a screw-in device attached somewhere on the gen motor or in the coolant apparatus (maybe on in each).

I heard somebody in Oregon bought something. I guess that was you. The President will be sending you a thank you note shortly.
