Repairing a Generator with RPM.

Repairing a generator isn’t the kind of DIY weekend task that can be completed safely, and effectively at home by the average consumer. In fact, these pieces of equipment are so integral and important to the operation of many Marine Vessel systems that you should always trust a pro shop to repair such a component. RPM Diesel is a top-quality Marine Diesel Generator and Engine Service, replacement, and repair shop for all your oceanic diesel needs. When it comes to repairing and maintaining mechanical equipment, it’s simply a better idea to trust, trained licensed professionals.

Why though is a generator such an important piece and why only trust a professional shop for repairing a generator? Well, for example, a car is a complex machine and even with that you may feel confident doing simple things such as changing a tire or topping off coolant. What about pulling an entire engine and inspecting its gaskets and seals, then returning the ending properly to the car? Once you enter this kind of level of repair territory- it’s likely you’d bring your vehicle to a proper mechanic.  With boats or other oceanic diesel equipment, this is just as true, if not mroeso given the even more complicated nature of their technologies. The investment cost alone in these vessels makes it so there is too much risk involved in going through unlicenced repair options. This applies to the internals of the engine itself, and any generators you may have on board.

A large portion if not most of the electrical components on your boat are operated by a marine diesel generator. Unlike typical home backup generators, these special units can take a bit more oceanic punishment from the air, salt, and water of the sea. However, repairing a generator shouldn’t be attempted by a novice and instead should be performed by the same knowledgeable diesel technicians who would perform this work on the Vessel’s engine and components.

Marine Diesel Engines are another major part of your boat that should be dealt with by a professional shop liek RPM Diesel. Unlike a highway breakdown in your car, which although inconvenient is a manageable situation in most cases, breakdowns at sea can be extremely costly and difficult to deal with. As the owner or operator of the vessel, the safety and wellbeing of the crew onboard are also your responsibility. Depending on the location, a breakdown at sea will require a costly tow back to the nearest port, and then figuring out the logistics of getting the crew home. It can and usually takes hours for the nearest tow vessel to reach you, and in that time your boat and crew are subject to the harshness of the waters they are afloat in. Imagine a breakdown in bad weather.

Don’t leave the operation of your boat, and thusly the safety of its crew in the hands of fate. Talk to RPM diesel today about how you can get on a proper maintenance schedule, and how we can ensure the longevity of your investment. That number is: 800-660-6304
