We have lots of bugs lately here. Haven't seen skeeters but something is leaving bite marks.

Surprisingly the lake we hoist or host on has very little skeeters or bugs. The water level here fluctuates and is not a desirable habitat for skeeters. Donít say thereís not some, but you are not fighting them like elsewhere. We are in charge of utopia for the next 2 weeks.

Dang, lady! To a total non-tech, it doesn't look promising. Not life threatening, at least, just an expensive inconvenience. Best of luck!

Dang! That truly sucks.
Time to look for alternatives?
Our first RV, an 84 C, had no generator. But, we had never had such a thing! Didnít miss it. Campfires for cooking and such.
You know? MUTATE. Camping!
It was that way for 9 years. Improvise, adapt, etc.

Simple answer: No. The engine and alternator/generator should be good. It's almost certain the problem is down to a gremlin in the ignition or fuel system. Many cars suffer from these faults at some time in their lives and are fixed fairly inexpensively by a competent tech. One thought, did he check the ignition capacitor? Those things can go bad without warning and stop play. Dwayne may be able to offer more thoughts. Don't despair!

Agreed!
The RV tech at C&Js RV Repair, Yuma, is a genius

And what if the FEMIGC had ... not only a RVM Jammie Party, but an RVM Jammie Pastie Party?

Now, if that said "pastry party," the answer would definitely be yes.

Who else might the cat drag in? Charlene & the elusive Allen? Don & Sandee? Ed & Jackie?

Mini-mutants need to know!

Cheers!
Might be!! Depending on timing...? First half of June is camping and my birthday and doc appointments and fathers day so it is a bit tight but I'd like to!

Used to go through Covington on US136 to visit grandparents when I was a kid. Then they built I74 in the mid-60's and bypassed it. Took he occasional trip on the 'old road' just for the heck of it but haven't been through there for years now...
We're about 2 hours from there now, depending on how big a crowd you want.
