Ok. I'm glad I asked, i almost did it. Thank you for saving my wife and I from what could have been a major hospital visit.
I know an rv dealer that keeps these in stock and I decided long ago that if i had to change it out, i'm going to upgrade to the electronic ignition model anyway, but now i'm half tempted to get the electric capability to it as well for those times when i am on shore power.
After reading this, I have no problems with the idea of replacing it. It sounds like once it starts to look like mine does...its pretty much toast. Never hurts to try and safe some $$$, but it doesn't make sense to have it if i can't use it, thats for sure.
Here's to the two of ya and your fam.
Where we've been:
2000 Rockwood Roo M-18 Hybrid
2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Auto 5.9 Diesel
Gone but not forgotten -1986 Rockwood 1003 PUP
