    Selling an RV; a "heads-up" tale

    I would have taken their money then charged a $1000 to sign the title. You did make them give you a copy of proof of insurance I hope or if they got in a wreck you'd be liable. Also the proper way is to do the deal at the sec of state so you're sure it's out of your name.

    Alternator Output

    I left the master switch on for over a week & it started fine but put out the most I've seen it do, 150 amps at idle. The old DC generators barely put out at idle.

    Don't buy Lectric Ebike

    I bought a pair of Evercross scooters last year from Amazon for $499ea ($699 now) & they've been been great. They have 3 speed transmissions & 1 year warranties. Here's a review but I'd recommend them highly.

    Alternator Output

    The ambo has a larger one for all the lights & equipment it can run. Do you know your alternator makes 3 phase AC?

    how to find space to safely store a van (so it doesn't get vandalized, stolen, etc when on-street parking near stix n brix)

    Smaller airports would be a good spot either in a hanger & give the owner a few $$ or where the pilots park when on a trip. Cops like to sleep at airports. We had one at the local airport that my buddy asked if he'd like him to turn off the outside light & the cop said Thanks that would be great (:

    Lil Willy my new toy.The small town we live near has a 2 hour parade for the 4th & I want my 2 Grandsons to drive it in it after I dress it up a bit.

    I bought it new from a dealer in TX. $2500/shipped, go's 37 mph. If I put it in the wrong place just move it, sorry! Put a 26mm carb & taller tires it will break 40. I was looking for a gas golf car but prices are crazy nuts this year & I found Willy.
