Hi Everyone,

I've been busy moving things from brother's place in AZ to CA......I spoke to his wife and she said she does not believe that he converted anything but the appliances in the RV is European or foreign.

I emailed motorcarelease.com as that is where he bought it from to see if they can shed more light on it.

So I contacted someone from Motorcarlease.com and the previous owner before my brother, was a US resident and had the RV in Indiana and his assumption is that it was converted already but he's not 100% sure.

I won't know until I can get it looked at.....

Another question: Because we've been moving everything from AZ to CA, my wife had to unplug the RV charger since no one has been at the house so keep electricity cost down, any chance once I head back I can just plug it back in to charge the RV??

If you can get it started, the engine alternator should recharge the batteries, both house and chassis. Assuming the plug is a standard 50 amp RV plug, hopefully the system has been converted over. In less there was some special equipment at the house where it was plugged in, it should work or the damage would have already been done.

if he had a 50amp rv plug it is no problem to leave it plugged in. with nothing on other than the charger it will consume very little electricity

you can also charge off of a 15 or 20 amp outlet but it has to be a non gfci outlet.

you have my number, call me anytime.

Mystery solved with the AC Generator, that last pic in the original post was the old unit he pulled out, found a pic of that old unit on his computer...met up with Tom and his friend last weekend, thank you again for showing me the basic operations and giving me the history of what Newell my brother bought. 

I hope it starts when I head back to AZ sometime next week.
