Re: Got my exercise today
In winter we make coffee in the Grand Canyon village parking area. Draws about 900W
for about 20 minutes.
In summer we run the A/C for the exercise period. Not sure of the draw, but it's probably
double the coffee maker.
I've had niggling problems with my Onan over the last 2 years, mostly from lack of use,
hard starting probably due to having to prime itself while I crank it, and one problem
was corrosion related, when a wire rusted off the starter solenoid inside the casing.
Also a bad battery cable connector, it rusted inside the clamp and I wouldn't have
found it, except for markopolo suggesting I recheck my battery cables.
However, it hasn't affected the performance in terms of overall electrical output
when it does get used. The repair person bench tested the output power when I had
the rusted wire fixed, and showed me the scope and the wattage/amperage/voltage
was all within +- 1% from it's specs the day it left the factory. He said unless I moved
to AZ (drier climate) they are always prone to corrosion if not exercised fairly regularly.
It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
