    Hi, has anybody installed a fuel/water separator on their gas mh’s?. I’ve been thinking about it because this “new” fuel just doesn’t hold up like years ago and water contamination could be a problem like in a boat. when not used regularly. I’ve used STA-BIL in the tanks of our mh,boat ,and classic Mustangs for years and this last fall I put the NEW STA-BIL in the boat to add protection against the corn gas separation. Motorhomes and boats are hard to push if they fail,plus the gas gen-set doesn’t get alot of use in many rigs either….. I’d like to hear some thoughts……………Thanks,Jerry

    Jerry, in my experience as a full-timer in a diesel pusher, it is important to start the engine once a month and run it to operating temperature. The same with the genset, diesel or gas. Run the genset at full load for 30 minutes. Full load means to turn on all heaters and air conditioners in your rig. And don’t forget to cool down the generator motor before shutting it off. Cool down is accomplished by idling for about five minutes without load.

    Hope this helps answering some of your questions.
