pull out for generator

I have a 1996 HR--has an Onan Marquie 7000 it does not "pull out" and is a pain to work on. Has anyone altered this type to change it to where it pulls out ?( on rollers)Trying to come up with a way to change it--any ideas?---Vince

They really aren't difficult to pull out. Our shop has a nice cradle and strap system that works well even for diesel gensets up to 12.5kw. You could easily create your own much quicker/cheaper than designing/building a slide rail system. Harbor freight transmission jacks work great and are very inexpensive. Most gensets have 4-6 bolts holding them in from the side and the 120VAC wiring, fuel line and remote wiring disassembles in a matter of minutes - and its out.

Vince,
Kwikee makes trays for generators. Google : "kwikee super slide tray".

I don't pull them often enough to warrant a tray.. Although doing major maintenance, I see how it could be easier.

Like the above poster, when I had to pull mine, I used a transmission jack and slid the thing onto that jack then lowered it.
