I spent 6 weeks going up and back in the spring/summer of 1996 in my old TC. I took the Cassiar Highway through BC. That year there were a lot of late spring rains so it was harder than hell to find a hiking trail that wasn't too muddy or soggy. The mosquitoes were hell also, and I found myself wondering the same thing the OP asked.
However, I think it's well worth it just to scratch that itch. Saw a lot of beautiful country and magnificent wildlife. I especially enjoyed the area around Seward, Alaska. Better hikes and less mosquitoes.
I probably would not do it again though.
Well I tried most of those things with no success. So I took it into Cummins Northwest in Medford, Oregon. Had a very good experience. They fixed it for about 140 bucks. They said the propane pressure, the governor, and the little orange wheel (maybe the butterfly valve Skipbee suggested) all needed to be adjusted. They said those things get out of adjustment when the generator is not run under load for 2 hours a month. I sure hadn't been running it that long. He admitted that this is a catch 22 because if you can't start it you can't run it, and that many customers have this problem!
I'd appreciate some suggestions. The damn POS won't start. At all. I've had trouble in the past where it wouldn't start at higher elevations, but would start once I got below 3500 feet.
I do know about the bugs clogging the line problem. That's not it.
So a couple of basic questions to start.
1- IS there a way that I can check to see that it's getting propane? Everything else including burners on the stove and the fridge are.
2- How do take the spark plug out to have a look? It looks inaccessible to me unless you take out the whole generator.
I keep getting enough corrosion on my 9 pin connector that I my blinkers and other lights won't go on. I dutifully clean the plug each time with a baking soda paste, and that fixes the problem. But the corrosion keeps coming back, and I have to do the same thing the next time i go out in the camper, anywhere from a month to 6 months later.
Is there any way to remove that corrosion permanently?
