RE: Anyone familiar with the Tuson sway control system?

If that works as advertised, $250 seems like a bargain

RE: Bike rack recommendation for front of tow vehicle

I really like that trailer tongue rack Jbarca! Here is the full post Bike rack for front of TT You HD Ram should be able to handle the added TW. Just do you have another 100# for the spring bars? Yep-remember our conversation-I need another 100 pounds on the tongue weight.

RE: Need help selecting generator

Starting to take a look at the Generac's. Anyone have any info on them?

RE: Need help selecting generator

I believe that I am definitely going with a Honda engine powered generator. Not one of the expensive ultra quiet ones though, the ones I have been looking at are $1500 and under. Mainly looking at these three right now: Powerstroke Honda Blackmax Honda Powermate Honda

RE: Need help selecting generator

Since the OP did not mention cost concerns and did mention "quiet", I would agree with the recommendations for the very large Honda or Yamaha. Be aware these are big, heavy and costly, and "quiet" is a relative term. My "suggestion" would be that the OP catagorize his power needs for the RV versus a power outage at the home. With this in mind I think two generators would actually serve better. For example, a 3k inverter gennie for the RV, and a Champion 3500 for home backup. This would give greater reliability for home backup and both gennies would stream a combined 5000-6000 watts. Added benefits are easier portability, more flexibility in setup, and reliability through redundancy. I have a Powerhouse 2700 inverter gennie that goes with the TT, and a Champion 3500 that stays at the house faithfully awaiting the next call for home backup. That is really a great idea and one that I can't believe that I didn't think of, thanks!

RE: Need help selecting generator

Why not get your home set up for a generator using a transfer switch, then add a receiptical to your home to plug the rv into? Dusty Definitely an option and I already have a 30 amp plug on the house to plug up the camper.

RE: Need help selecting generator

Do you expect to be able to purchase and/or draw from stored gasoline during an outage? You may want to decide how much you value the option to run on Propane/Natural Gas - especially if you already use one of these fuels at the house. This would be valuable during a large regional outage where gas stations can't pump and those with generators can't get fuel. This happened to us during hurricanes Sandy, and Irene. I like the option to run on propane, a dual fuel unit would be perfect. I have quite a few propane tanks since I have a gas grill, camper, and an offroad truck that runs on forklift tanks. Plus propane can be stored for long periods without going bad. It can also be filled when there is no power.

RE: Need help selecting generator

Honda or Yamaha 3500 watt will be more than enough for your trailer and quiet enough not to make the neighbors mad. To run an a/c, 2 household fridges, and the rest of the camper? I don't think 3500 watts is enough for that. The household fridges are in my house, full size units, not small portable ones.

Need help selecting generator

I am looking at purchasing a generator for power outage emergencies. Yes these are rare occasions, but since I switched from a motorhome to a travel trailer I miss having the convenience of just staying in the camper if the power is out. I would like for the generator to be able to run my camper (jayco 33bhts) which has one 15k but a/c and all the normal stuff-it has 30amp service. I would also like to plug in 2 additional house refrigerators. I can of course run the RV fridge on propane if the load is too much. It would be nice to have something relatively quiet, but since I don't plan on ever using this at a campground it's not a priority. We always camp with hookups. I've been looking at units in the 7,000 to 10,000 watt range. Some have rv plugs directly on the unit and others do not-I assume there is an adapter if they do not? These are some of the units I have looked at: http://www.sears.com/duromax-durostar-10000w-portable-gas-electric-start-generator/p-SPM7298198902?prdNo=27 http://www.planetgenerators.com/powermate-pm0497000-04-review/ http://www.planetgenerators.com/duromax-xp10000e-review/ http://www.homedepot.com/p/Champion-Power-Equipment-7-500-9-500-Watt-Electric-Start-Gasoline-Powered-Portable-Generator-with-50-Amp-and-RV-Outlet-CARB-41534/203649714?N=5yc1vZbx9nZ1z0z74f#specifications http://www.homedepot.com/p/PowerStroke-6800-Watt-Generator-Honda-GX390-Electric-Start-PS907000A/204401587?N=5yc1vZbx9nZ1z0z74f#specifications http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200614588_200614588 Thanks for any help or advice!
