That's almost an antique. Heck, if it works, that's great. And you're correct, that's a small package.

Not sure if ours has the muffler built in or not, probably why it was installed as part of the exhaust. Puts out 54 amps. Works fine. Sure doesn't look near as bulky or boxy as the modern ones.

Ah OK. That's a motorhome style generator, probably for an older Class C or A that was mounted on the side of the frame with a cabinet door that was had a large vent in it, and the insulation around the box to quiet them.

Sorry about that. I just assumed it was the newer style that are all boxed in and have a cooling system fan that circulates and exhausts air out the bottom, eliminating the need for the vent in the cabinet door. The muffler and intake are all contained inside the insulated enclosure.

I love my genes which is the newer style Onan. However i miss my old one that ran on Gas instead of propane. The other thing that is my concern is how low the RW is. I constantly am worried about dragging my exhaust pipe. It is way to low for my comfort but there is really no option.
