Hi All, just went from LV to Paso Robles, them Bodega Bay, then Napa Valley, 2 days each place. Then Napa to Barstow, then LV. The section return to Barstow, was the longest, with my temp gauge on the fritz after Barstow going down, Tehachpi pass and Baker grade, we're nerve wracking, not being able to tell about overheating, but just did what Clifford, Gary and everyone else said to do, 2000rpm and radiator sprinklers, the stop half way up the engine compartment temp gauge, said all was fine. A real confidence builder, lvmci...

There should be a warning light that activates at 201-202F before shutdown

Richard, I just checked and my unit is a Kohler L654, 7.5kw.  Is that what you have?

No - we have a 12.5kw. Sounds like a different animal altogether. The bus is still in the shop awaiting parts for the a/c, but once it's home I'll check and see how ours is connected.

Full timing vs traveling on days off of work is totally different. 

When we full timed we traveled and then stayed somewhere for 2-4 weeks and moved on and it wasn't stressful.  Due wanting and having an older bus now and having a career we have found it best to use it for close travels withing 5 hrs otherwise we make other arrangements due to the worries of what ifs with needing to get back, ext.  We keep it simple and that has allowed us to enjoy having a bus.  We are about to take on a long travel out west but we have 3 weeks.  I also have always tinted the windshield and side windows and it provides a lot more enjoyable experience while traveling.

Just thought I'd pass on this info for anyone with a 1970's Kohler generator that is thinking of changing it from 240v to 120v.  I was able to track down an expert on these units.  He was actually recommended to me by Kohler tech support who could not help.  He is retired for their company and knows the old machines.  Anyway, to be absolutely sure, one would have to know the model, spec, and serial number.  But a rough rule of thumb would say if your unit does not have a starter motor, but is started by internal windings, it can not be switched over.  Later models that have external starter motors can be.  Since mine is the former type, that will not work.

His added advise was to never get rid of the unit.  "If you do" he said, "you'll be sorry." He said that my generator was manufactured in July, 1979.

I've activated the 205f shutdown a couple of times in the last 15 years and it didn't hurt my engine at all.  You may have gotten it hotter than that due to a bad sensor.

me too, only in Arizona, wouldn't be there without it.
Lived to tell about it. Smiley
