Last time we were out (June 12-16) I started having a squealing problem again on my generator trying to run both AC's. I had the gene checked little more than a year ago & the tech said I would need to replace the drive belt soon. Got ~1750 hours on it.
I started to pull the panels off today & due to how my gene was installed, it is going to be much easier to drop my whole generator to work on it. My gene does not slide out & the nim-roads
that installed it did not center it between the frame rails so I can't get the passenger side cover off to get to the belt. Fortunately I have a friend with a cherry picker & motor cycle lift that we will use next weekend to lower the gene to the ground. Only 8 bolts, battery cables, fuel lines, exhaust, & one wire harness & the whole generator will come out. That will allow us to work on the thing easy & replace anything that is needed.
Maybe one of these days I will look into how I might be able to install a slide for better access.
