What Happens to oil generators

I have been repairing my generator over and over. as a old farm boy it is old hat to me. I got RV used and puting in my own to make it good and my own. working on it your self will do that.

the real question is as I search for used working or dead RV generators I do not find any. people complain about them, but the dead ones are not out there for parts.

As I get better at process I keep wanting to find a old one or two and rework them.

thanks to all. now I has some more areas to look.
I had searched ebay with out much luck except for new parts to repair RV and generator.

It was also to find one of the guys I can visit and talk to on the subject in Ocala. I travel near there on my trips between my real home and work.
