Oh Man :(

Getting our 86 Ellandan 28footer ready for our trip this wednesday and was doing some work on the coach battery system hit the positive side on frame.
So today I started the genny and it ran for about 3 min and died
Then no start

It did the same thing when we first got it,turned out to be the control board.
So I ordered a new one from Flight Systems,should be here Tuesday.Probably
shorted the board out,glad it happened at home.Just had to vent

I know: Couldn't tell you why it went out the first time,they told me because it sat for so long the components on the board dried out and went bad. Thats what I get for rushing
