This is just an fyi. Replacement of the generator starter requires the generator be lowered from the RV and slid out to remove the cover and then remove the starter. You do not need to remove all the connections, just the fuel line, Positive cable and ground as well as one multi line connector next to the solenoid. Easy peasy. The main line back to the Rv is long enough to drop the Gen Set. slide it out from under the rv and remove the cover. You also need to remove the exhaust which is all of a couple of u clamps.

Now if you have a motorcycle lift or a friend with one and you have levelers this is a 90 min job taking your time. If you don't have levelers this is going to be a real chore. The lift is 5" at its Lowest point. The gen set is about 14 1/2" tall.  Once you have remove the 8 bolts and lower it you will need to use the levelers to raise the drivers side to 20" from the Bottom of the side to the ground to be able to clear the gen set and remove the cover.  Once you slide it out its 4 bolts to remove the cover and 2 bolts and one nut to change out the starter.

All in All.. Easy Peasy
