Learned a bit about running completely on generator this summer. Ice fishing we’re adequately covered with the Honda 2000 but the big camper is another story.
We went with a Predator 4550 inverter. Broke it in by spec and test ran it at home with everything on but on a cooler day. All good!
First run on site was a hot day though. By all accounts it SHOULDA been enough to run the A/C but we had some issues. Harbor Freight even sided with us and exchanged our first one for a replacement. 2nd one did the same thing - over revved; overloaded and tripped out.
After lots of internet trouble shooting and talking with actual electricians and debating about upsizing, I went with a soft start kit. Another $300 but yep, that was the ticket. Runs smooth as butter now.
Even better n my best hand in cribbage tonight.
Oak tree and May fly, sex season!
With stringy oak tree pollen sacks hanging all over everything, and dead May fly bodies stuck all over everything!
Throw in a few spider webs and you camper or cabin looks like a haunted house! 🤨 😆
