    when i went to dave's motorhomes for a small job to be done, he kindly adjusted the skew angle on the satellite dish for me. to test it, i started the generator. well, no i didn't as it was completely dead. a quick examination showed no smell of petrol, so put in another 50 quids worth in case drawing from above the fuel level. no joy. so, yesterday i took it back to be sorted. much embarrasment all round. not petrol, but lpg! tap turned off on tank, so no go! never heard of an lpg genny on a petrol rv. anyway, delighted with outcome as genny now half the price to run as i thought.

    Oh dear, Des - that was quite an eventful trip down here for Easter, wasn't it?

    Still, as you say - probably cheaper to run the genny now than pay for site electrics :thumb:

    A tip for what its worth...

    If you have an engine that will not start, if you haven't got any easy start, tip a spoonfull or more of petrol down the air intake, invariably gets it going............. (providing you have the fuel supply turned on!:Rofl1:)
