RE: Onan 5.5 HJAB-901A starting problem

romantraveler writes: "I had exactly the same problem and got the same code. The technician said it was probably the control board or slip rings. Turned out to be the slip rings. $410.00 later it runs like a champ. Good luck. RT" More often than not, trouble code 32 has nothing to do with low voltage, carb, or anything else. It is almost always trouble with either the voltage regulator or the slip rings / brushes. What RT posted is exactly what ours was...

RE: AC Volt meter install

------------------------ UPDATE ---------------------------------------- The meters I got (like those in the OP) are exactly the same size - the second unit (the DC meter) snapped right into the box just like the first one. Both fit nicely, but I did have to remove the 'bottom' horizontal rail of the box. But they are mounted very close to the floor, so the install works fine even with the bottom rail removed. http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s667/normared/DSC00610_zps22def003.jpg width=400 And now that I've been down there taking this picture, I think we'll spend some time vacuuming today!

RE: Fess up time

The handle 'AikenRacer' makes a lot more sense now... It's a good thing that you're thinking "Hey people, is it just me?" So, yea - we think maybe it is.

AC Volt meter install

Liked the volt meter installs as posted here by Ginther on 08/05/2013: http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s667/normared/VoltMeters002_zpsfc362d41.jpg width=400 Great looking meter, so we ordered the same exact ones. NOW - call me a chicken, but I was very hesitant to cut into a wood cabinet to mount them. So, after lots of looking, found this $5 electrical 'outlet box extension' from Lowe's website It worked - the meters snap right into the box like they were made for it! Here's a pic of the box: http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s667/normared/Lowesitem69766_zps9c6019a3.jpg width=400 And here is one of the meters mounted in it on the wall by the entry door - I liked that location so I can look at them from just outside, and the blue color will make a cool little night light for the steps: http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s667/normared/DSC00605_zps532ab71e.jpg width=400 http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s667/normared/DSC00607_zpse113552f.jpg width=400 Didn't think the box would look good, but the obvious 'screw holes' built in along the edges give it sort of a rugged industrial look. NOTE that I only have one meter installed in the pics. As soon as the DC meter arrives I'll snap it in below the AC meter, removing a little of the box's cross rail if / as needed. Feel much better about not cutting them in... two little screw holes is all it took, no dremel, no hole saw. If you hesitated getting these because of cutting them in - this may be a solution for you.

RE: Cymbalta??

TRY this! After trying a number of RX's I have found that a combination of Gabapentin and a supplement called ALA (alpha-lipoic acid) works best for me. When I read ALA is approved in Germany as a prescription for diabetes and nerve-related symptoms, I tried it - and it was a godsend. No more needle-sticking pains in my feet, it's worked great, and has helped me for over 2 years. I take my Rx of Gabapentin X3 a day (as written) and add one single 600mg of the ALA at each dose (morn, noon, night). I buy ALA at GNC, I like their version's vanilla scent (be sure & sign up for the GNC card, and always buy in the first week of the month - big discounts!).

RE: LP Tank conversion

We also use the Extend-A-Stay, it was already installed so can't help with that... BUT if you must buy another (= external) tank, consider something larger than a 20-lb tank. We quickly learned that the gas grill size bottle don't last very long at all, especially using propane heat. We actually use BOTH a 30-lb AND a 40-lb tank with the extend-a-stay. Don't use both at the same time, but switch-over when one goes empty. And we still have the full chassis tank for back-up or emergencies. A problem with any of these set-ups is that most propane companies won't come to your site (with a truck) to fill-up a less-than 100-lb tank - you must haul them back and forth yourself. The 30-lb is not too bad, but the 40-lb can get heavy on just muscle power. Good luck.
