If you will fallow these simple rules. You will get all the help you need.

1 No such thing as a dumb question. If you knew you wouldn't be asking.

2 Provide the full model and serial number. When you can. It will help us get you the correct information. If the model tag is gone we can still help you.

3 Pictures also help.

4 Don't expect an answer right away. If you come on at midnight and want the answer now. Probably not going to happen.

5 Some answers may not solve your problem. Remember we are trying to help over the net. We are not there with you.

6 We will discuss your problem. To give you the best answer. Please don't argue with us.

7 Let people know. If your unit is fixed and what was done to fix it. May help someone else.

8 Keep it clean. No need for cussing people out.

9 If you want a manual,print or any other information. Give us an email address. Can't send it if we don't know where.

10 Don't come on the site. Ask a question and leave. Because we work very hard at getting you an answer. Don't waste our time. If you don't really want to know.

Everyone is welcome. You will be treated with respect. No one here will call you dumb,stupid or laugh at you. Like I have seen on other sites. We are all family here and we help each other out.

Thank You! And everyone for valuable troubleshooting information.

So how do you say thank you on this forum without having to post two threads like I just did.

I would also recommend using the Google site search option at the bottom of the main search page. The standard forum search does not include short words or prefixes/suffixes like NH, CCK, BF, etc. Just for kicks try a search with both using Onan 4.0 BF.

To say thank you you can click the Thanks button on the bottom right of the post. Always a good thing to do when someone helps you out. The Thanks button will disappear on some post after the post has been up for awhile.
