Hey Guys! Sorry you had the problem, but glad you got it resolved! I bad a problem with mine as well but it was a propane situation (with the sprinter) so not the same: HOWEVER, I have now scheduled to run it at least once a month, (recommended by many) to be safe. It's one of those things that is only needed when you (we) need it.
We'll be emailing you - all the best,
Jack (& Linda)

I'm curious,,, does the manual recommend running the gen the same for propane?  I understand the reason with the gas due to varnishing in the carb etc... BTW, from everything I have read your not going to hurt the gen by running it,,, that's what they are designed for...

Yes, it's good to run it regardless - you're right on about the gasoline. My problem (I think) is I filled the propane in Yellowstone last summer, and I read somewhere that often big users get a mixture with more butane in the summer - this supposedly doesn't work as well in winter. I'm a little beyond the scope of my book in this but for whatever reason it wouldn't run/start until I had fresh fill with propane (it only took 2 gals. So it wasn't the low volume problem) .
Best,
Jack
