rebuilts can be tricky to insure. It depends on many factors but this unit is certainly worthy of a look and investigation.

I hear you.

It is a bit absurd to know that we put robots on another planet that can send photos back to us on earth and communicate with people on the other side of this planet via our watches but we make generators that need more maintenance than a trophy wife.

I let my genny go dormant a while back. After exercising it and doing all the specified procedures and getting it maintained it still gave me problems with <200 hours on it. I've never quite understood how my lawn mover can sit the garage all winter and start up on the first pull come spring time wi...

I own a 1995 RSB and I've had some issues over the 7 years I've owned it, including some electric problems. You've received excellent advice regarding your specific post but if you have any future issues with your rig, feel free to reach out.

Thanks!

Jaina -

I also have a 1995 BF. I haven't needed a screen door clip but perhaps we can share ideas when/where we get parts.

Reach out anytime

Thanks!

Tom

It's a westinghouse breaker. I'll see what they have at HD.

Thanks for all the advice.

is there a standard type of breaker? how would i know if the one i see on amazon will work? spec number or something? This one looks nearly identical except for the brand: https://www.amazon.com/Square-Schneider-Electric-HOMT3020-Single-Pole/dp/B008KNPAO0/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1508181731&sr...

It's the main breaker that trips, not the A/C breaker. Obviously, it's a 30AMP breaker. I hookup up a clamp ammeter to the wire feeding the breaker and it peaked at 18AMPs but otherwise ran at about 16AMPs. I did notice that the wire was hot to the touch. I will look into getting a new breaker. No h...

The overhead/house AC unit will trip the main (green) breaker on the breaker box after about 30-60 mins of running it on medium fan at about 80% max cold.

Nothing else is running in the rig except for the frig.

Any ideas?

So now it doesn't trip any breakers. I have no idea how that 'fixed' itself, but still the frig still only works on Gas and the convertor still doesn't seem to be charging the house battery. Maybe the circuit breaker is shot...but I do get current to the outlet that the Frig is plugged into. ? I've ...

Ahhh. Good point and you are correct. i unplugged the frig from the outlet located where you mentioned and kicked back on that breaker. All seems ok...other than the frig of course. no trippy breakers but I'll check to see if the convertor is charging the house batteries tomorrow morning. So now the...
