I'm starting to get too good at fixing my generator since I've done it so many times.

I was running my generator this evening and everything seemed fine.  I happened to walk into the bus and noticed the A/C units had all quit.  I went out and checked the voltage and it was zero.  I played around for a bit and decided to ohm out the brushes.  The brushes showed open which wasn't good.  I took the end cover off the generator and discovered a wire had come loose from the brush holder.  I put the wire back on and the generator runs fine again.  I'm going to finish up putting it back together in the morning.  I'm hoping this is my last generator repair for a while.
