I have a 2007 Georgetown 35 bunkhouse and do not agree with your statement that they are garbage. The onan genset on your sister's is probably the exact same model that every class A gas motorhome comes with. Now, I am not sure about the 2015, but the 2007 does not have an automatic transfer switch. It has a socket in the electrical bay that you plug shore power into when not plugged in at the campground. This socket is powered by the generator. If this is the configuration that your sister has, the first obvious check is to see if the shore power is plugged into this socket.
If that doesn't help, check that there is output voltage from the generator. You can use a meter at the genset itself.
I occasionally have had trouble with the exciter field on my generator losing magnetism. My genset (a generac) actually flashes the field with every startup. I have found that if I do not get generator output voltage, I can stop and start the genset engine a couple of times and it comes back.
Good luck, and tell us what you have found.
Yes, it is probably the easiest job on a motor home to do other than changing the oil. I did mine. While you are doing that, do the cheap handling fix. Very simple to do.
Disagree.... The sway bar bushings are much easier than changing the oil :)
We were at Ft. Wilderness for Christmas last year. We made reservations the day of our arrival while we were parked at the welcome station at the Florida border. The loop we were in was not full. There was plenty of room.
Christmas day was crazy at the Magic Kingdom.! I have never seen it so busy and I would not go back on that day. We didn't enter the park, but according to the Disney app, the day after Christmas was dead.
Warning: With the new wrist bands, people with reservations in the resorts can make fast passes up to 2 weeks ahead of time. This changes the entire strategy for seeing the park. Since this was spur of the moment for us, we didn't buy tickets until about 2:00 PM the day before. We immediately tried to get fast passes for the next day. The first fast passes available were 5:30 PM.
Love these merge threads. They usually come up every year or so.
Illinois rules of the road state: "When entering an expressway, you will usually find a speed-change lane. This lane allows you to gain the speed necessary before merging. Signal and look for an opening in the traffic, match traffic speed and merge with traffic when safe."
Notice there is no statement about "yielding", although "when safe" is kinda the same thing.
Also, the merge sign says "The driver on the expressway slows down to let the driver on the ramp merge."
So absolutely when in Illinois, you should adjust your speed to allow the oncoming vehicle to merge safely.
The propane is stored in the tank in liquid form. It has to change to a gas to make it to your furnace. That takes heat. It is possible that when it is really cold outside, there is not enough heat to evaporate the liquid to a gas fast enough to keep the furnace running.
