Cummins Onan Announces RV Generator Story Contest

Cummins Onan recently celebrated the production of its two millionth RV generator at its Fridley, Minnesota plant.

To help mark this historic milestone, the company has invited RVers to submit their RVing stories that involve a Cummins Onan generator. Every person submitting a story will be entered in a contest to win an Apple iPad 2 complete with FaceTime, Smart Cover, 10-hour battery, 16 GB of memory, and Wi-Fi.

“We know from RV customers that our generators have made a big difference in their comfort and convenience on the road,” said Shon Wright, Director of RV and commercial markets. “And we are proud of producing two million reliable RV generators over the past 50 years. So it makes sense to invite our customers to join in the celebration by telling us their RVing stories.”

Worth Pondering…

I am part of all that I have met

Yet all experience is an arch wherethro

Gleams that untravell’d world, whose margin fades

Forever and forever when I move.

—Alfred Lord Tennyson
