I believe it. But the key word was that you used it every weekend. Most of the time I've had to replace generator impellors from picking up a plastic bag, or just lack of use. Usually you'll always ending up frying an impellor at startup, from the impellor taking a set and then ripping a few vanes off when started. I've never seen a generator impellor go bad while it's running unless a bag or something has blocked water flow.
