Well, I finally found a RV generator about 45 minutes from me. The guy had it listed on Craigslist for $500 with all the manuals! I've been looking everyday for weeks. Boy, these are hard to find in the local area!
Its a ONAN 6500 Watt twin cylinder gasoline Genset. Its the old dinosaur. I couldn't believe the outstanding quality and durability of these units. I also noticed how EXPENSIVE parts are for it! WOW! Parts for my truck are cheaper!! AND IT WEIGHS A TON!! Now its time to start planning the installation. Fun. Fun.
Also cleaned up the interior and took a couple shots. I really don't have any good pictures of the interior. Just random progress pics here and there.
I decided to complete the entry stairwell because I disconnected the jacknife door a while ago to sand and paint the stairs and I figured I might as well finish it up so I can hook the door back up incase I take for a ride once in a while.
I used rubber backed floormat material from Lowes and exterior carpet adhesive to glue it down. Then finished it with aluminum trim.
I have been trying to figure out what to do with this space I have across from the bathroom. I will be using a 24" bathroom door so I have to allow for swing room. But I have about 20" in width that I was thinking of using for some storage. Maybe build a short frame with plywood hinged on top. (almost like underneath bunk bed type storage). Any suggestions? I have about 8 feet or so in length and 20" in width. I'm going to put a fridge behind the dinette seat so that will take up a whopping 19". Seems almost unheard of to have extra room. (Sorry). Ha. Ha.
Well, thats it for now until I start making progress on the generator install. I'll keep you posted!!!
