The main suggestion is to run it for 30 minutes under load at least monthly. I use a 300w shop light ands big fan. Also open the carb fuel drain if it sits w/o being used. Always use stabil or sea foam in the fuel.

I've got Stabil in the tank right now. I'll probably pull it out every week or so and run it a while, until all the gas is gone, then prep it for storage and put it away till I really need it. Even though it set me back several bucks, I'm glad to have backup. I just can't function without a generator.

While working on the HTT in 38 degree weather, I hooked up my Honda generator to power the Coleman Mach heat strip into action since the propane tanks are empty. Within an hour, the interior was a relatively comfortable 58 degrees. It was nice to see it works.

To be safe I unhooked my water pressure regulator last night and put it in the basement. I hope this was the last threat of freezing weather this year and as of 4:50am when I'm writing this it didn't get that cold, but better safe.....

I needed to use some of my fresh water tank anyway to keep it rotating since I keep it full all the time except when I'm traveling. Too many times parks lose water including where I am right now. We went without anyway water in the park for 2 days due to a major water main leak that serves this entire area.

One of my main rules after checking in to a park after the usual back in/level/slides out/plug in and turn on a/c is "fill the fresh water tank". We are not self contained if our fresh water tank is empty and generator fuel tank isn't full.

After 43 hours I got the Trailer finished had to do a lot off things where the manufacturer left off. Maybe I am to picky but love to make it our home away from home. Cleanup wiring, plumbing and installed with fasteners. Strengthen the structure off the dining area and beds. Fixed the poor fit of some of the cabinets etc. Installed dual batteries and cleaned up the wiring on the A-Frame. The stabilization jacks the self drilling bolts where loose in the holes so new 8mm bolts made that solid. One storage door resealed and fixed the water inlet check valve, also installed a valve in case the check valve fails. De-winterized and checked for water leaks. Sanitized the FW system and filled the FW Tank and weighed the TW. We still expecting frost so the heat stays on at night.
So we're ready for Easter Camping and while on the road we will be going over the Cat Scale.

Looks good! And I see your egg-carton charcoal hiding there under the fridge.

Hey, when I get back up to the Northwest next month, do you want to give my Jayco that treatment?!

Took the motorhome back to storage after spending time in Louisiana and Texas to hide from the cold.

Sure will Bill just give me a call and if we have time we'll tip a cold one. We'll be done be 3:30 at the latest.
Got 10 egg cartons in that space for my grilled Salmon and oysters, Tunce will take Tri Tip or Salmon.
