Two other things:

1. Is the Oil Filter painted red?

2. May want to have a spare fuel solenoid on hand if traveling. I changed mine out a year or so ago and it's already acting up again. That's the only issue I've had from my generator.
Well, you know...I hadn't gotten that far on either of those. The oil filter is red and darn if it doesn't look painted. This is the far side of the generator and it takes a wiggling to get back there and see it. I can't imagine painting a filter to match an engine but the PO was pretty OCD about the boat in general. Huh. I didn't pay close attention to it but will when I get back to the boat in the next day or two. On the solenoid, I would think that would be a good spare to have. Again, just haven't gotten there yet.
