OOpseys, yesterday, while I was preparing Ellie for a trip to the big RV toitey, I ALMOST made a colossal mistake!!
I had just a little over 1/4 a tank of gas.
I thought I'd better exercise the generator before I left.
Easy enough to do while I put things away - I'll run the a/c too while I'm at it so the genny will get a load to run on.
My little RV doesn't have an over ride system to protect if if I stupidly turn on the generator without unplugging from shore power first!
For the first time since I've owned this rig in '06, I made the mistake of hitting the inside button to crank on the genny before I unplugged!
Oh, my sensor didn't like that either. It screamed out in pain!
Yikes! I let go of the button the very millisecond I realized what I had done!
Fortunately, the genny didn't start, but it did try.
I went out & unplugged.
Came back in, hmmmm, now the genny hates me. It doesn't want to start now.
First thought, oh, I must have also ticked off the coach battery.
Sure enough, I did.
So I started the engine to give the coach battery some juice & then the genny started right up!
Man do I feel lucky that I didn't trash my electrical system!
I feel lucky, but of course, there's no lottery yesterday to play on ;-)
