I think this is the usual thing - something about the floating ground or such. You can buy a thing for like $15 or make your own. Do a search on generator and maybe grounding.

Not including labor, either! They said the labor would be 2 hours, so that isn't so bad.

You can also get a new slider hitch of some sort. I also had a 2006 Montana and had no trouble with hitting the truck bed, but from a 2004 Silverado to a 2012 Silverado the truck bed went up about...

I just camped at a park south of Lander,Wy. They had just got Starlink going a few days before I showed up. It worked great. The park only has 20 sites and about 12-15 rigs in it at the time.
