Oh good... I have had a heck of a time getting online with photo bucket to pay them....

I finally got my pictures back. I need to edit a lot of this thread.

I have either forgotten what I’m supposed to do or they have made som changes.

Seeing pictures like this make me remember... and reminds me that it’s time to make new memories.

Wow!

It seems that I have failed to post my last few years travels all around North America over several hundred more nights in out truck. Camper

Janet and I are in our 56th year of marriage .... And our 49th year truck camping

When I get old I’ll get back to posting trip reports and pictures ( if I can figure out how to do it now )

My. Only advice... we find that as long as we mind our own business no one else has to....

Works perfect

Generators

I have a Generac propane generator in my 2003 Lance 1161 truck camper.

It runs fine once it is started

Boatycall analyzed it’s problem for me... some of the external wiring has been corroded as we parked for months along the salt water beaches all around North America

He installed a by-pass rocker switch that lasted several months as we returned home From Seattle area and then part of our later trip to Florida.

Well... we need it for our air conditioning

I think removing the generator from the camper scares many of the people that are capible of doing an overhaul

I dread trying to take the generator out myself as I near 80 years old

Any ideas... please?

On the road, I'm a bit limited in suggestions, at home, there's a mechanical shelf lift we use at work for moving around 500+lb server hardware. Its a dolly and use a crank on it much like a boat winch to lift and lower a steel platform shelf, that you could get and then it would just be a matter of sliding it out of its compartment once its loosened from the rig and onto the crank lift to roll it to a bench for working on.

I like this lift....

Thank you

My plan if it would work has been to use the camper jacks as much as possible

Stabilize the generator then lift ot lower the generator as much as possible with the camper jacks

Maybe I haven’t thought this through quite enough

But with your lift.......

Thanks

Chet

BTW... how’s your rebuild going?

Pulling the last of the in-ceiling/wall wires. Got the backup camera installed, all the marker lights are replaced, all the signals work, just need to get the multiple trailer plugs for connecting all the stuff between the truck and camper (Looking at 4 umbilical cables at this point unless I can find a better source for Jaeger plugs)

Once the last two spools of 500 ft of wire arrive, I can finish pulling the in ceiling electrical and close the walls and ceiling in and start building cabinets, installing the plumbing and gas [emoticon].
