I have no idea how much gas is in there. I thought I pretty much drained it for the winter. I've put in about 15 gallons thusfar along with the seafoarm. The generator draws from the fuel station.

The switch was replaced or "fixed" last time I had it into the local dealer (not the one I bought it from). I have yet to try it, though I definitely should as I'm leaving for the track in a week.

This generator never goes to a different rpm, always stays the same, of course except when it is surging. Adjusted the altitude knob and that seemed to help ever so slightly.

Well, the calming storm of beer has shown back up (thanks wife). Hopefully, the generator will continue to work next week. I'm charging the boost pack to make sure I can crank it for about an hour without it going totally dead.

This keeps reminding me of the first time I brought it home when the dealer gave me it with a dead battery and had to jump it to get the landing gear to move so I could take it home. Me not having owned a RV before didn't put 2 and 2 together to know that by the time I got home the battery wasn't going to charge itself. Ended up in a AutoZone parking lot buying ridiculous amounts of jumper cables to try and just get the landing gear to move.

The track? What kind of track, do you have some go-fast toys?

Hmmm. My alternator charges my trailer battery through the 7 pin round plug. It will also suck my truck battery dry if I'm camping and don't pay attention. The good part is that at least my generator has a seperate starting battery, and a pull start.

Hmmm. Beer sounds like a good idea right about now. Finished up some concrete sidewalk and patio which was my big project. I've been piecing together a solar system for my trailer and have a few more parts to go install.

Ehh, the stuff I can fix, I'd rather do on my own instead of dealing with towing it around and leaving it with the dealer and trying to find time to pick it up.

I agree that calling the manufacturer sucks. I had to call a different part of the plant and get transferred a few times to get them on the phone.
The tech support people do not know the product well. I do like my camper but the factory backing is weak which would have steered me away from the work and play and will help me next time I spend 30k.
