    Starting Generator trips GFCI

    Finally figured out my batteries were not charging. Just got back from a week of camping and found I had no water in the batteries or propane in my tanks LOL. I also have solar so my batteries have always been charged. I did change the GFCI outlet though.

    Starting Generator trips GFCI

    2014 Weekend Warrior with a 5500 Onan generator. Went to start it to get ready for a camping trip and it turned over fine. When it started to run it just died and there was no power anywhere in the trailer. After some troubleshooting I figured out the main GFCI outlet was tripping. I...

    Water leaking from Intake

    Have water coming out of the intake when it is on the hose. I can't see far enough in to see exactly where it might be coming from. I had the bowl off to install a new bowl seal. I also used all new gaskets putting it back together.

    Bowl seal

    I don't have the special Berkeley tool to drive in the seal. Is there another way to install it without damaging it?

    Bow rail removal - small holes

    I decided to not put my bow rail back on after some detail work. How would fill the 3/16 bolt holes. They go all the way through the deck and I have quite a few to do. In the past I have used a dowel with epoxy to fill a larger size hole and just put a little gel repair over the top. I have...

    Degreeing a Camshaft

    Thanks for the responses I went through the process of finding TDC each time I degreed the cam. Going through the whole process probably 5-6 times thinking I was doing something wrong. It came up with the same wrong numbers every time. I even bought a new dial indicator to make sure my...

    Degreeing a Camshaft

    Let me start by saying I have degreed a few camshafts but don't do it everyday. I have a new hydraulic roller cam I have been trying to match the cam card specs. Long story short it had to be installed 6 degrees advanced to match the card and particularly the 109 degree intake centerline. I...

    Gel Coat maintenance detailing

    Here is my opinion. Started with 2000 color sanding which makes it very dull Heavy cut is better than 3M Super Duty compound (Heavy cut takes out imperfections in one or 2 passes and brings out a shine. 3M super duty takes longer) 1000 is better than the 3M medium cut for Gel Coat (3M is...
