Alternative generator installation
My little 20' Argosy mh has an old Generac 4k genset installed in the back end under the bed. I'm not a big fan of the Generac for one it runs at 2400 rpm and is a single cylinder. The 6.5k Onan that I have from the 345 is a couple of inches wider and a little longer. The original orientation of the Onan in the 345 was the the long side of the genset was installed lengthwise in the motorhome.
After checking all my dimensions it seems pretty clear that the Onan will fit just fine in the Argosy compartment if I install it 90 degrees to what it was in the 345. That sort of puts the controls (what few there are) on the side of the genset when looking at it from the genset door opening at the rear of the motorhome.
The Argosy genset compartment is actually quite large. Large enough infact that if I install it this way it would be fairly easy to install it on drawer slides like I did for the genset in our 310. That would make it relatively easy to do any sort of maintenance or troubleshooting on it.
Anyone see any obvious flaws in my plan?!
