Trailer Report

Del, KØDDS reported on his investigation  of replacing the generator ruined by flooding.  He reported the Harbor Freight Predator 8750 starting, 7000 running watts would be the better buy.  Cost $599.99 plus 2 year replacement program and taxes,  In two years, the unit can be returned to Harbor freight and a new one received for the cost of a new two year replacement plan.
