I assumed Bill's Powertech would have an alternator like mine.  At least I assume mine does.  I have never charged my generator battery so it must get charged by the generator.

Our PowerTech Generator requires 12 volt power to keep the engine shutdown solenoid from shutting off the fuel.  This solenoid is controlled by relays (which also require 12 volt power).  Our generator does have a small alternator, although I have seen PowerTech models without an alternator, but I believe they have a low amperage 12 volt output from the generator head (not sure, I would have to check my manuals).  Jack

I have lots of photos of Gator and Bulldog fans, pirates, witches, etc.  The problem is I'm may get kicked off the board for posting them.  Heck, we could call it art work.  Now they would kick me off, for posting beautiful artwork.  When I die I want to come back to life as a airbrush artist in Key West.

Ok, here's more ART...

oophs,,,

Forgot the art...

Moderator Edit:  While body painting seems to satisfy some definitions of covering the body from a legal standpoint,Here on the forum it probably is better if you do it as Newbee MC9 suggests and post links with a note about the content so that those that want to see them can.  They do somewhat cross the line for this board.
