Since coach is new to you and if Cummins can recertify the genset, it will be like a brand new genset so all you got to do is just use it so it does not happen again. I would put a cap at $2,500 in total before considering replacing with a new one.
I agree with you except thinking of $2000 cap. But if I could get it apart myself I could get control board, voltage regulator, brushes and clean slip rings for around $1000 in parts. Basically new generator??? Iím old school and used to fixing myself or knowing someone that could. Donít have my head wrapped around $165 an hour labor costs. Guess we will see. Not sure new ones are available either. Thanks for your input.
