New Generator 30 amp CB arrived in the mail today.

Coach has sat since our return from Natchez, after installing new generator circuit breakers attempted to start...no joy.

Gen spun too slow too start...another project for the list.

So are you using any chemical stripper or anything else to remove that vinyl? It looks like it’s just peeling off

Guess I will explore replacing the gray tank due to its age (38 years) and the location of the flange crack.
