Generator slide leak
#21
My problem has been finding someone even willing to take on the job.

I've had some ridiculous conversations with various shops over the past week.

Them: "We don't service generators beyond oil changes". Me: "I don't want you to fix the generator, I want you to put a lift under it and pull it out to get to the hydraulic ram." Them: "But it's a generator and we don't service generators except for oil changes". Rinse. Repeat.

Them: "We refuse to work on anything over 10 years old". Me: ????

Them: "We're scheduling in December".

I am getting kind of close to going the Richard recommendation and using my air bags and some wood cribbing to pull it out and take the ram to a hydraulic shop. Wink Life on the road does have its challenges.

When I pulled mine I used an engine hoist, they are cheap from Harbor Freight. You undo the ram out front and the gen doesn't have to come all the way out to reach the back of the ram. You can also pull the blower fan out of R1 to reach the back.
