Drying out a genset
Survived the storm with no major issues. We did lose power, normally I give the utility a few hours to get it back before I drag out and connect the genset. With all the media hype, including five feet of snow expected to fall in the mountains of W.VA. and our power comes from down there.... Drug it out connected it and all was well. Power came back two hours later. Decided to leave the genset on the front porch which is on the East side of the house, the snow and wind was coming from the west. Next morning I went out and the wind had shifted and came in from the South and the genset was covered, including snow in the generator vents.....
Drug generator to the barn, vaccummed out the generator, then started it and put a load on and let it run for a while so it would heat up and dissipate any remaining moisture.
It's working now, just concerned about long term moisture issues. Thinking about spraying WD-40 in the vents and anywhere else I can get access, but not sure?
