We use Reminders app on our iPhones. My husband gets a reminder to start 2 generators once a month, water potted plants every two weeks, pickup mail, remove and clean sub tank once a year, etc. LOL

Drain the carburetor after each trip.

On our previous mh I installed a switch on the wire going to the fuel pump, turned it off when generator was running and let it run out of gas. The mh we have now has a carburetor drain.

On our previous mh I installed an electric switch to turn off the generator fuel pump, and let id die for lack of gas.
Out current mh, the generator has a drain valve on it's carburetor.

I've run my Onans once a month since I first got one 15 years ago. Now my rig is parked in Florida where it will sit untouched for 6 months of the year. I'm interested to know if it will even run when I get there in November.

My stick house backup generator gets run a couple of times a year but that one has a petcock and I let it run out of gas before putting it away. Same thing with the snowblower and lawn mowers.
