Here's a shot of my old setup.



I found out that the old squirrel cage fan inside the enclosure was DOA.  The new one was about 2 inches wider so I swung the whole assembly over.  It also now uses the original circular access hole in the rear bulkhead to pull hot air out of the genset enclosure.  We had 85 degrees and the genset ran at 175 degrees while running 2 roof airs, inverter charging batteries, and the fridge.  I love it!

Looks good!  If the duct tape does not hold, try Gorilla tape at Home Depot.  Good Luck, TomC

Thanks Tom!  I know I need to rebuild the panel that faces the side of the box since it has excess holes from running the radiator hoses for the previous location.  I figure, test first, build to spec later!  Wink

Hey Lonnie!
Yes, Amy, Matt and I will be at the back to the brick rally.  Will you have the bus there?  It's a great excuse to go for a drive!
