I'm in Idaho.
#1
The Idaho forum seems dead, so I thought I would make a post here. 

I live full time in my RV in GrangeVille Idaho.
It's a small farm town, but there is a lot to do here for a small town. Anyone passing through this area should check it out.

I know I'm a little late to this post.
I really my Phoenix cruiser, the only problem I've had so far is the generator, it died, so I will have it replaced when it goes into the RV repair shop. 

Otherwise I haven't had any problems with this RV, and I would highly recommend it.

A generator will cost $$$. Maybe they can fix it. I think they are about 3-5000

Most onan generators suffer from not being run so the jets clog. I know when I got my van, the generator wouldn't start (it would turn over). I removed it and cleaned the carburetor jets and had to put a new fuel pump on it. Runs like a champ now. Onan recommend exercising the generator monthly for two hours at half load. I cheat and only do one hour with a resistive heater connected (1200 watts on my 2800 Onan). Onan's should be good for a couple thousand hours.

Exactly. Important to run regularly for any gas engine with a carburetor especially if it doesn’t have a fuel cut-off switch. I run my Honda about monthly and it has the switch to run the carburetor dry. From my limited experience it seems EFI, electronic fuel injection, engines is not as critical to run regularly. I have several EFI engines that sat for a year or two and started fine. 
My Koehler RV generator runs on propane and was starting fine until I changed the batteries cables around and the battery. Now it won’t crank over very fast or start. It might just be the battery. 
 2000 hours seems about right. I have a 6000 watt Generac with 2200 hours and the main oil seal failed. 
 I went to Grangeville a few years ago thinking of moving my base there. I was there a couple months. It’s a nice area. But it didn’t work out.

My now favorite state (used to be Colorado but too crowded now). My favorite campsite is on the Salmon River near Stanley. Starts getting cold there in September and is still cold now. Wish I could get outta here!

I run my gas engines, that haven't run in the previews month, on the first of the month.
My Yamaha generator has a fuel cutoff, I run that dry.
The Onan doesn't have that function.

My Onan's fuel pump is the impeller type. I don't think it would like being run dry very much if I added a fuel cutoff to it. Next time I have to remove it (if I ever do) I will put a Y or T in the fuel line so I can run carb cleaner through it easier than adding it to the 35 gallon fuel tank. Hmm, maybe an electric switch to just shut off the fuel pump. I'll let this idea soak for awhile. Think it would have to be a SPDT with center off though. Flipped one way, the generator would power it and flipped the other way to always 12V for priming.
