Hi Debbie!

Latin seems to be quite appropriate when naming our Birds, eh? Welcome to the Zoo! Elliot & Linda

[Now that is just all KINDS of interesting.] Meanwhile [until we open the tray or I find a receipt in the box to say otherwise], my current grokking is that I am dealing with a Kohler stator with 26-year-old varnish, regardless of engine hours. [Plus a leaking tray ram – or its valve, for which I have the Grainger part number now – and the exhaust sleeve mismatch resulting therefrom.]

.

Wow I don't think I have ever seen an engine with 45 hours difference from the generator. That is quite astounding!

So the flooring project has yielded up one of those "don't that just beat all?" moments.

As part of the project I set my mind to remove the kitchen end panel and cut the back edge enough to reinstall it flush with the countertop front edge. The lower cabinets prove to be about 4" out from the wall. I see and fish out a ziploc bag full of soda straws. The top drawer is set forward, so there's a lip back there. The entire stack is a solid box, no way these could have fallen out of the back of the drawer. I explore the lip further, and extricate 3 pieces of paper.

So now I have the name of the missing previous owner! My Blue Box has all receipts from 1987 to 2006, with a gap to 2010. One of the missing receipts missing is for the 110 house reefer, and the kitchen generally kept giving me a vague sense of "not the original installation." This clinches it; there's only about 1.5 ways that little trove could have landed on that ledge, and that's just before the countertop went in.

And one of these 3 pieces of paper is a receipt for 2 days camping at an unnamed California beach state park, dated September 2006, made out to Wallace Curles. Thank you Wallace Curles, whoever you are, for removing the propane reefer!

So to recap, to my PO succession above, add:
Wallace Curles, ?California?, 2006 - ?2010
James Alnsworth, [Point] TX, 2010 - 2011
Debbie Huffman, Houston TX, 2011 - ff

i found a bag of pot in a newly purchased coach once!
I had known all three owners,and 2 of them i was sure didnt smoke pot.
Plus it was not all that old,judging by the color!

Not being a smoker,i gave it to a very happy friend!

It is possible when one buys a used car, coach, truck or whatever to take it to the local authorities and have it sniffed out... I am sure there is a time limit on it... or at least that's the way it is at military installations

So I should take apart the panel behind the sink, deploy the stalk mirror, and check the OTHER end of the kitchen install? At 27 months, the hand tools and I have been inside … only about half of the interior blind spaces….

[No seriously, the cat had already found that space behind the kitchen sink, into where used to be the compactor motor; and did I ever tell about the couch? The cat can squeeze through the space between the kick facing and the seat springs; she likes the box where the central vacuum makes the "L" into the pass-through below. THAT gap gets a permanent fix during this round.]
