RE: Running Generator on the road

Yeah but you are now off topic. This thread is not about bashing the loud reliable 279 dollar champion workhorse

RE: Running Generator on the road

yup, worse thing is they damage my champion generator ;) My strong bumper will protect the RV unless major collision then don't matter what we have back there.

RE: Running Generator on the road

This maybe a stupid question but why not. How many out there run a generator while running down the road and if so how do you run the cord if the generator in the truck bed and the plug is at the back of the FW or did you have another plug put in up front? Yes - (run the gen in the pickup bed) if desired. Yes - another "plug" up front. Serves several purposes, besides the gen. See the (my) - *connection options* from discussion about the 50amp cord. It's a variation of a schematic posted many years ago by Ken Lenger for his on-board gen & manual transfer switch. BTW - The rack in back. Unless it's for a slide in camper (no bed space available), IMO - the gen on the "rack in back" is your *substitute bumper*...:( But - whatever rings *your* chimes!..;) ~ and mine is stronger than the stock make believe bumper :B

RE: Running Generator on the road

Another option is to add a cargo rack on the back end of your FW and mount a gen-box back there. Usually a much shorter run for the cord and not (usually) necessary for another plug. Lyle This is what I did and works great. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/62nCoDeZCcs/s640-Ic42/genny%252520rack2.jpg width=450 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kpn6HOU7Tzg/Tg9HtFHCToI/AAAAAAAADk4/q45yYmv5sc8/s640-Ic42/genny%252520rack.jpg width=450
