RE: Exercising generator

OP here - Nope, no heat pump or heat strips. And the roof AC compressor isn't really practical in the winter in Minnesota. Here's what I did: I did run a space heater on high for 1 hr. It's 1500 watts I think and the generator is 4000 watts. So I'm only at about 38% load. I guess I need another space heater to get the load closer to 50%. I have always used Seafoam over the winter with a full gas tank. The reason I'm asking all this is I ran into an issue where the generator didn't start. I had missed running it a couple months over the summer. The Cummins shop got it working again but I'd rather not drop $300 again.

Exercising generator

Regarding exercising the generator under a load... Does the fan on the roof AC count as a load (just the fan, not the compressor)? I could add the furnace as well. I live in Minnesota so don't want to run the AC with compressor during the winter months - and can't really run the microwave for an hour. Thanks!

Minneapolis - RV repair shop and Ford dealer recommendations

We just moved to Minneapolis from Cincinnati. We are in a SW suburb of MSP but will drive to the other side of town for good service. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good RV repair shop (dealer or independent)? Also, does anyone know if there is a Ford dealer in town who will do oil changes on the E450? Thanks!

RE: Advice on buying new class C

The Forester and the Sunseeker are sister products with little difference. The little difference steered us toward the Forester (one issue was the fiberglass roof). . I would consider the fiberglass roof to be a "BIG" difference. bumpy Both the sunseeker and forester have fiberglass roofs. Another thumbs up for forest river. We have a sunseeker. All new ones have some issues but forest river was very good to work with when problems arose.
