Pushed the start button on the Onan this morning for breakfast, the Onan started surging. Went out before breakfast -- will troubleshoot tomorrow.

Recently? The Kwikee step finally refused to play ball. Pulled the control box and He who Must Be Obeyed checked the electronics and using the proper tools and materials burnished the relay contacts. Between the two of us, me underneath of course, we were able to figure out the wiring, cut away the corrosion and end up in a better place than when we started id est, the step now will retract when the ignition is turned on, something it has stopped doing a while ago.

Yes tommorrow after doing the lawn I am going to work on our steps, tired of using the aluminum portable step! Today I welded the exaust up after fighting with my fairly new Lincoln MIG . Got 'er going again and welded the joints. Found my new left rear shock hanging in the breeze, bolt on the bottom disappeared. Adjusted valves , thought it was a lifter, but ended up being something in the distributor, contacts in the cap have arc marks and seems like some metal transfered we'll check it out tommorrow. Bobby

Sure would like to see some pictures of that. I am in the process of removing decal/stripe and will be putting on paint after that.
