Where are we today ?
Just another great night, windows open, fantastic fan going, perfect for sleeping. Up early again as usual (actually slept in till about 5 am). Temps already about 22c (70f) outside gonna be another perfect day.
Shortly after 8 am a phone call to Port Hope Auto Electric and our new starter is in. So I hopped in the car for a one hour drive each way to pick it up. Great service from these guys and quite reasonable to.
Back home and made a quick bite to eat for an early lunch. Then Jim came over anxious to reinstall our new starter. Before we did that checked the fuel pump. Hmm no gas. So did a little trick, fired up our compressor and pumped air into the gas tank of our coach, maybe thirty seconds later fuel pump for the genny is pumping gas !! Starter installed, everything hooked up and our generator fired up right away. YAHOOOO! Turned on both air conditioners and ran for almost 45 minutes not problems.
Appears that the issue with our genny is fixed and we learned a few things in the process. First don't run the starter for extended periods (thats why it broke I think) and if it won't start just pressurize the gas tank (not sure why) and it will go. Maybe for some reason it lost its prime.

Glad you stopped by, too bad you did not make if for our "social hour" conversation just flows around, and get to know a few more people in the process.
