Thanks.

That confirms that the support ribs (hat channels) are 14 gauge.

They were so shiny, mine is so rusty.

I would sure love to have a brand new one.

Final build weight distribution.

Front tire cap. is abut 12000, rear is about 22000.
GVW is 25000.

Interesting fuel figures.
Got a Scangauge D and programmed it, a very cool tool!

Per Onan, the 4kw Onan uses about .5gph at 1/2 load.
Per SGD, the 5.9 Cummins uses .3gph when warm at idle in N.
One AC on, .4gph.
2 ACs on, .5gph.
No AC at idle in D, .5gph.

Vary interesting.

Too bad long periods of idling at base idle speed is harmful to the 5.9 Cummins engine.

Thanks.

You're right. Lots of these engines don't like to be left on low idle for long periods.
Hand throttle up if leaving them sitting more than five or ten minutes.
