Terry,
With the age of the bearings, I think you are well-served to consider the replacement. I said earlier you might not have a problem, but best to head it off before selling it.

Just so you don't think you were ignored here, can't answer/help on the beep.

It is an inverter (12volt to 120volt) or a converter (120volt to 12volt, to charge the battery)?

stripit,
At my age, handling 10gal tanks is becoming difficult; convenience is now more important than cost for some items. Park electricity wins for me UNLESS the kW charge is outrageous.
