I haven't heard of a sealed disposable carb before, learn something new everyday. Then before I would spend money on a new carb try this. I have an older Honda 6500 watt genset that I use at home maybe once or twice a year and it was running rough, searching unless the choke was pulled out a bit. So I drained the gas tank added a 16oz can of Seafoam injector cleaner with 8 oz gas and let it run a few minutes and shut it off, let it sit for two days and repeated this two more times. Filled tank with gas and it runs like new, no searching, choke off. On a genset in an RV since the fuel comes from the RV gas tank you would need a longer fuel line to run from the carb to a container with the cleaner/gas mix in it.

Yup, I talked to Cummings and they basically said the same thing.

True.
I too forked out $700 to the local Cummins place.


Our Greyhawk was gently used when we grabbed it and I took it to Cummins thinking the warranty would cover anything.

Nope.
Gummed carbs are not covered.

I asked about rebuild and they said they absolutely could not rebuild due to regs and faced a stiff fine.

There is a buyer/seller misconception in the used market that a lower number of hours on a generator is a good thing, when it's generally the exact opposite.

I think that's true for the entire coach.
Don't let them sit and rot.

X-2 My dealer says the same thing. Mileage was never a concern since he knew when problems arose they were found and fixed, especially leaks.

I don't think the epa. I believe it's all the stupid California rules. Same reason we have horrible gas cans.
