SSGs must be started and warmed up to normal operating temperature every seventh day of short-term storage.
Keep voids 4 as dry as possible. Keep all moisture out and keep bilge dry. Manufacturer recommends using a
dry space and/or space heaters to minimize condensation in generator windings and possible damage to insulation.
