Pulled out the generator for a little servicing...... new fuel solenoid, little rewiring, new turbo exhaust gasket, fuel, oil, air filters, completely degreased and repainted with new coolant. Runs like brand new!!

Brings back memories for me. I worked as a mechanic on the professional motocross circuit back from 1979 through 1983. I think I traveled ever stretch of ever interstate in North America at least 50 times each Rubbed elbows every weekend with the likes of Bob Hannah, Kent Howerton, Broc Glover, David Bailey etc. Those were the days!

Great pictures! And that's terrible about the vandalism. Sure hope they caught the dirtbag.

Do you guys find vandalism a problem in the RV parks?

With a paint job like that they must have thought it was the Mexican Cartel transport bus LOL But you have to admit from the video photo it looked like a professional hit

Default VANDALISM? BY SWAT WANNABE?

From the fuzzy picture from the video recorder, its hard to tell where its at (like the outside of the park office?). That figure looks like he has an ammo/utility belt and some armor and of course a ski mask. Those old gonzo security camera systems are just awful.

You didn't mention which RV park you were at. The world and members wonder.
