I would like to ask any RV'ers that are on PD and are using a cycler
if they had any issues using a generator for power.....
I have been advised not to use one.......

Thanks..

I'm a dialysis nurse (for 34 years) and taught PD for a lot of those. All I know about generators (ours) is they run out of fuel unless you know how much you're using and fill it back up ahead of time. If you do run out, the cycler will keep your data and resume your program when you get'er running again. I cannot think of other reasons why cyclers and generators would be a bad mix.

Thanks very much for your reply......
I gathered from Fresenius that they thought that the "quality" from the/some generators would not be as "clean" as the power company's.......

As far as the generator running out of fuel, I have the entended run add on tank on mine (2000 Honda) .....Will run many hours before refueling as I had to do recently with days of power outage due to killer tornadoes..did not use for cycler, though...

There are generators and then there are inverter generators. The inverter generators might be a problem. Some sensitive electronics don't like certain types of invertors. I would thing a regular generator would be okay, as they are just like a all house emergency generator. And I would call the technical service people from the company who made your machine. They should know what is best.

Thanks for your reply...

The supplier of my cycler...
"Only plug directly into a wall plug....:"

Have been told that some cycler users have used their machines on their generators with no problems....

Quote from Honda in regard to their generators....

"Honda uses only high quality inverters in our generators, which produce stable, consistent power.

The end result? Clean enough power to run even the most sensitive electronic equipment."
