For anyone still tuning in...
This happened yesterday
I finally made time to reinstall the generator in my 2007 Tuscany. I had designed my not yet finished new detached garage to easily fit my FourWinds Sprinter based RV...and then we sold it and bought this monster! I had to remove the passenger side mirror to squeeze into the door, but at least I didn't have to work outside on the crusher run driveway.
I had previously repaired the brackets that hold the generator between the frame rails, and verified that the mounting holes had the correct spacings.
My son dropped by to help. It was fairly simple to lift the generator with my S-I-L's tractor, and set it down on a heavy duty transmission jack. Then my son and I removed the front generator mounting beam, and rolled/jacked the generator into place. Easy peasy with the lower half of the front cap removed. Then, put that beam back in place, install all the mounting bolts, torque them, connect fuel lines, battery cables, control wiring, and output cables.
While I was repairing the generator, I had already verified operation under load, and I had changed the fan belt, and the air, fuel and oil filters.
I hit the start switch to the prime position for 30 seconds or so, and tried to start it. Amazingly (to me) it started easily and purred as it should. Inside the coach, it took maybe 45 seconds for the transfer switch to do it's thing.
Both roof A/C's, the fridge, microwave, all outlets and electronics are working just fine! It's a little stinky inside the coach, because I haven't yet installed the generator exhaust pipe.
I had also repaired some of the front end wiring for the headlights and such, bought a replacement headlight, and repaired a damaged cab A/C line.
So I'm coming down the backstretch...still gotta mount a new condenser, charge the cab A/C system, finish cosmetic repairs on the cap, fabricate new front cap stabilizer brackets, remount the bottom half of the front cap, and paint everything. Shouldn't be too much longer.
Oh, and I still have those parts from the Splendide washer/dryer unit that I removed. The pump, dryer coils and blower, control board, drive motor, you name it. If anyone needs these parts, PM me and you can have them for the cost of shipping.
