Wolf's Motorhome Modifications

... and Other Stuff

Generator Problems, Many of Them


I have been a steadfast supporter of Winnebago.  I still believe they are the best motorhome based on value.  But these problems I've had with my generator!  Open to the elements, it is suffering from extensive corrosion and has become a major maintenance headache.  These problems and photos were documented in 2005.  The motorhome, manufactured in 1997, was eight years old.

Beware ... if you are looking at a Winnebago be sure to carefully check the generator and the way it is mounted!


About my the 1997 Onan Generator



About the new Generac replacement



A fellow mounted a Honda 3000i on his 5er.  Neat!


If you are buying a Winnie, beware!  Check the generator carefully!
