Briggs&Stratton Generator

I purchase a Briggs & Stratton 30545 PowerSmart Series Portable 3000-Watt Inverter Generator about a month ago. To start with this generator is all most as quiet as a Honda. Right out of the box put oil and gas in it and pulled the cord it started right up. Power wise it powered our RedWood with one ac. Weight wise I can pick it up and put it in the basement when not using it. Equipped with (4) household outlets (1) 12-Volt 30-amp locking outlet with RV adaptor DC charging outlet and a USB port, you can charge almost anything with this inverter. The easy-to-read LCD screen shows the amount of power being used, total unit hours, and maintenance reminders,

What are you going to do when it gets really warm inside that coach?

When I dry camp at the Nascar races , I have never had the ability to run 2 AC's . . I turn the front one on, and it cools the trailer down... It does not make it cold , just manageable is all...

I will say that it takes a LOT LONGER to cool down my black and silver RW compared to my older white KZ . .

Come on September . . . My first Dry camp weekend with my new Onan 6.5 ! I may just turn both AC's because I can !

What about gasoline? Gasoline fumes in your basement when storing? Hope you have a way to vent these while traveling or keep genny & gas can in the truck bed...

The generator stays in our shed not our basement. When we travel it will be in the pickup bed.
