If you're sure you're going the LP route than I would get it. I believe I found the one you're looking at and it looks legit to me. The slip rings can start to corrode after just a month so it would still be nice to see it make power.

Food for thought and pause

Thanks for the response. You raised a good point...see the ad, where is and as is. Hadn't realized the potential problem...

Definitely food for thought and pause.

That is a good buy. You should be able to convert it to gasoline.

At most it's a year or so old. Good buy and if I needed it I would go for it. How many RVs sit on a lot for a very long time before purchase and do you think the gens get exercised "NOT". Yes the could be a problem but small chance.
