Just did some searching on some of the older Solera threads re running the
genset that was loaded up with the coach A/C while tooling down the I-State, or wherever. Is this fairly foolproof after all? Seems like many of you do this to augment the MB A/C (which we agree is very adequate!) esp. on a very hot & humid summer day. Tho it's an expensive way to cool the interior of the coach while driving I also realize that there are MANY personal reasons for doing this considering other passengers "in" the coach...I understand! BUT, my question is simply this...
Were these generators "made" to take the rock-and-rolling of the MH insofar as supplying adequate lubrication from the sump area? You know, not overheat, burn up...OR start a fire from the bottom up? I thought I've seen a few video's on this problem previously? I maintain my generator and ALWAYS check the oil level before using it...never have had a problem with the level being low. Of course, the FIRST time I DON'T check it then that's
when the problem will arise and I know many of you whom DO NOT faithfully check it! I also check the MB engine oil before I move it too, btw! That engine is traditionally too darned expensive to screw up! So...
Any thoughts here on this would make me feel at least more-or-less confident depending how the explanation goes...how 'bout gratiated then?
(I normally just need the MB A/C as it does a great job for my wife and I plus pooch who is tethered on the floor behind us (happily too!) and am merely
thinking down the pike for that extra hot day when we would be tempted to
turn it all
on...)...hah. Looking forward to a beautiful Autumn and weather = prime time for camping by far! Enjoy all!!
