After adding a great number of LED lights (strobes,rope lights,and a disco ball) and an extremely loud sound system, I keep tripping breakers. I have decided to add an open frame generator to the rear bumper of the camper to carry the new electrical demands. How should I attach the generator ? Directly to the bumper or to a frame mounted hitch?
I tried to hit several of the forum hot buttons with my above missive. [emoticon]

Hope everyone has a fun and safe 2019 camping season, ours starts in about a month when the local campgrounds open.

Just be sure you get a large cheap contractor generator. [emoticon]

And we did stay at Petit Jean SP a couple years ago and a nearby site did have a rotating lighted disco ball hanging in a tree. [emoticon]

Strobe lights? Loud sound system? Disco ball? Rednecks are alive and well in KY.

You may have acted a bit precipitously. [emoticon] This thread really deserves to be in "ATC" Forum. He's just messin' around.

If you build a nice smokey campfire (and keep it smoking well), you get a far more impressive light show due to the haze than you would with clear air. It would be particularly nice with some lasers and moonflowers added to the mix.

I hope you got a 1000 watt sound system so you can hear it over the generator. [emoticon]

Don't forget to wire for a flood light. You'll need that to safely cut through your neighbor's campsite on your way to the bathhouse.
