We’re visiting the grandkids this week and stumbled across a Facebook Marketplace ad for an Onan 6.5 Generator.

Restoration performed by local Onan Dealer and has 4 hours since restore...sounds too good to be true?

A couple of phone calls, some video’s and we’re on our way to Illinois. Upon arrival, physically matches the photos, starts right up and output is good (volts, frequency, ...)

A handshake, a smile and we’re headed home!

Wired the generator output for 50 amps while it was on the trailer, easy access.

Looking forward to our upcoming shakedown cruise!

You have to marvel at these wonderful machines!

What started out a a one week shakedown cruise has turned into a 3 month adventure. We met my best friend in Ohio and spent a month in Michigan and explored/experienced the UP.

Our trip was cut short when fell ill and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. We made our way back to his home town for treatment. Two months of radaction treatment and chemo so far...it’s still touch-n-go ☹️. We may be here until the end of January if he can handle the chemo.

I guess you could say we our living a semi-Fulltime life in our Airstream Classic 310. All of my dear wife’s design ideas have paid off handsomely and we are very comfortable. All systems are functioning as designed.

I miss having a washing machine and don’t enjoy visiting laundromats. No success convincing wife to let me install a Splendide 2100 Washing Machine yet...(still working on her ). She is concerned about losing drawer space if I remove the cabinet and install the Splendide.

Due to our extended stay, we have added a few minor mods to add storage and remove some of the clutter on kitchen & bath countertops.
