I thought you were going for another female monicker in lieu of Minne Winnie.. .?  instead of what I was thinking, I'll suggest  Home instead of Home

Or,,maybe you could just swap it for a different one that needs no other name.  For instance,  our simple little camper- and probably my wife's favorite material possession in the world, is a Cox Commander........

Bob was Liz's first idea.. my dads name was Bob and my trail 90 got named Bob after him.
I have a hitch carrier so he will probably Bob along on the rear bumper sometimes.

RV there yet and Nomadad both good but we decided those names are probably already in use by a few if not many other RV's.

Just found my little round Moto Guzzi sticker, that will be the first add to the bumper.

If I named my rv by it's character traits it's name would be "always something to fix",  or "expensive bitch".

Rocinante - requires some explanation probably for the less well read;
- it’s what Steinbeck named his rig in “Travels With Charley”, but this was after:
- what Don Quixote named his horse, which roughly in Spanish translates to something like “previously a horse”.

At least that’s my recollection.

Rocinante is a good one, especially if you watch The Expanse on Amazon. If that's too much of a mouthful try Rosi, pronounced Rossi, or Rosy for short.

I think all the "Bob stuff" is because FG is from MN.    Of course, Bob was raised in the circus, so you never know.   :grin:

Got her home, drives nice!
 Generator surges and I've been running it a couple hours with premium in the tank and a can of seafoam but still surging. The shop who cleaned the carb says you can't get a carb kit, have to buy a new carb, we will see if I need to go that far. Buddy Bones says it's hard to keep a generator from some surging.

  Hey Foto, by the looks of it I'm betting it ain't goin' in that garage :evil:  On the gen surge.....BULL$$.   There are two types of controls for the carb, one senses load like your old lawnmower and increases the rpm's based on that, The other electronically senses load and a stepper motor is used to increase the RPM. If there is no load on the genset it should idle all day long without surging. As soon as you put a load on it it may slightly surge before coming up to full power and then smooth out.
 
  Carbs are plentiful and reasonable if needed.  Circuit boards and stepper motors are a different story. Onan or Generac  Genset?
