Those were in front of your couch, yes? Before the floor replacement Tony?

You are right Tony, there is another one right above the trans. I want my table back....
Pretty cool original set-up: 2 barrel chairs that table and the couch. Dinner for the entire family.
I took the barrel chairs out and build my own dinette. I just hated that they were just floating about on wheels. Imagine what could happen in an emergency with those chairs...
Found this picture on Freds site, first I have ever seen

Yes they were; someone had filled them with bondo as my compost floor was falling into them.

Peter

The table top fitted into a plastic tray just below the front couch, above the the three flap doors. I'd imagine that over the years of bouncing around with weight the plastic tray disintegrated or it was just a pain in the petoot to hold up the couch to slip the table top in. (I'm going with this reason), that people got rid of this set up.

I too had two front chairs just sitting there that someone got from a garage sale somewhere, and yeah, lethal missiles in a crash. I now have two bolted down swivel base chairs traded to me by John.

BTW How is our Texas friend, as I haven't heard from him in a while? Did you get him squared away?

Cheers
Tony

I still have the original Corian set up that came with our 325LE, the chrome legs have a separate wood holder in the closet next to the refrigerator, and the table stands in there as well on end when not in use. Regards, Bob

Interesting what they came up with over the years.
My favorite design was in 79. The table unit is stored behind the drivers seat and moved on tracks to the center of the coach with lots of possibilities for exact location. Then the top flips up and this very sturdy table folds out, either for a half or a full size table

Seems to be a much better solution. I checked and my 310 does have that plastic tray under the couch, but as Tony pointed out, the effort to store the table must have caused many

Hey Peter, thanks for the tip about the elevation setting on the generator.
I went and found that mine was set near sea level. Not good here at 5,000 ft, even worse at 10,000 ft in Colorado.
Its running and smelling much better now.
I can hardly believe I hadn't noticed that before.

I do get occasional no start issues with my genny.
Push the button and nothing happens, no click nothing.
I've then tried with the engine running, still nothing.

I've checked for good ground etc.

Then try it another time and it fires right up.

I've had to sleep on a very soft air bed after driving down from high ele.
And it chose then not to start.

Any ideas where to look for the culprit On this?

Cheers Richard

Yep Mike, I've tried it every way I could think of.
All of the inside switches, even the front one with the tie together switch held on, and with the engine running for a bit to boost charge.
And at the switch at the genny.

I've been told there are a coupl of switches mounted in the case of the genny.

So I'm working myself up to tearing into it to see what I find.
It would be nice going in to know what to look for.

I was puzzled by Kyote' bubble test, then realized he may have. Propane powered unit. Is that the case or am I missing something?

In the last couple of days that I've been lookin into this, it's been working great.
Just love those intermittent electrical problems. 😨

Cheers Richard

Just curious, have you tried heavy duty jumper cables when it refuses to start. In my opinion, the cable that runs from the battery to the generator is underrated. Corrosion and poor connections may be the culprit. Why it would be intermittant, I wouldn't start to guess, but there are times when my genny "thinks" about wanting to crank. Funniest thing.
The other thing you can try is to unplug the remote square plug on the side of the genny to take the 2 interior switches out of the equation.
It has 4 smaller gauge wires that look like this bundle.
