We will be bundocking next week and will need generator. It has very few hours so we should be good.
Just want to check oil.
Also are these water cooled?
The cover pops off similar to motorcycle side panels. The unit does not slide out.
Once the cover is off, unscrew the oil fill cap, the dipstick is attached.
The generator needs to run two hours every month with at least half load (run 1 AC unit) to keep it running in tip-top shape. I learned this too late and now have carburetor issues.
This unit is air-cooled.

Good luck, have a safe trip.
