there are internal shut offs but the other peripherals will suck power even with those turned off.

Dennis, not sure where this was made, thought all Vanguards were built in USA?

Look at the spec sheet inside the closet and it will tell you. The spec sheet is usually stuck on the back of the door or on the wall adjacent to it.

Replaced the starter on my ONAN Generator today. Seemed to be pretty easy, oh wait, I just did it last fall. Darned thing would not engage just ran without the gear engaging. Lucky I can change it in about 15/20 minutes, will send it back under warranty.

Got her all put back together and cleaned inside and vacuumed! Now she needs a wash job outside and some attention to her engine/transmission fluids....

Went with the DW to a fabric store and got material to recover the sofa and cushions on the table. She is good with the sewing stuff, so going to turn her loose on them. Will have pictures soon.
