"Regretfully, since you don’t own one of these newer generators, so you’re speaking “off the cuff” without any real "User" experience. In retrospect, I had both my old coach (standard set) and new coach (new protocol) in my garage for 3 months parked side by side for comparison of the generators."

It is very hard for me to believe that Cummins made major improvements to their quiet diesel generators and you are the only person that they told about it. I have been searching for news releases or reviews about these improvements and the only news that I can find from Cummins is about the new gas generators.

Thanks for the replies - Regretfully instead of this thread being friendly and educational so we can all learn from each other to further enjoy our RV’s, a few users have instead chosen two attack it and my credentials. For those who think I just dreamed up this topic, as a hobby, I spend 8+ hours a day designing lithium systems for their integration to RV’s. I designed the very first lithium system for RV’s in the late 90’s. Since then, I have provided consulting information to numerous RV manufactures, as well as industry leaders such as Lithionics Battery, Xantrex Corp, E-Gen and others. In Fact, I’m presently designing the first 100 volt lithium battery system for my Renegade. This system will provide up to a week of “off the grid time”with the roof A/C running. Other unique features include; the RV’s cab A/C compressor is converted to electric and powered by the coaches same lithium system allowing the dash air to run even with the engine off. This is big news for RV’s since the cabs AC unit outputs 19k btu.

In fact, I just returned from a trip to Elkhart and Decatur visiting with technicians of 12 different RV manufactures for a “Show & Tell” of my Renegades latest lithium design where the entire coach and appliances are powered solely from lithium allowing the roof AC to run for two days or longer. While I’m presently documenting this newer system for an upcoming video, for those interested in a more conventional lithium system for their RV, I have included some links below of a few systems I designed. You might have to copy and paste the links!

Stay Safe - Mike

Mike,
This one took a turn only when YOU refused to listen and learn from many others who tried to correct your erroneous information. Instead of acknowledging someone else may actually know what they were talking about you decided to belittle them instead. Those are the "credentials" we all witnessed. Nothing more, nothing less - you have reaped what you have sown.

This is 100% on you. But nice try at a deflection - didn't work.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Until Mike's buddy informed him he was indeed full of B.S. he was adamant that none of us had inverter generators, then he switched to " I noticed an immediate change from his 2019 and his new rig. " I have never seen anyone stand by a mixed-up opinion in the face of overwhelming proof like that. WOW
He still won't acknowledge he was wrong.

From the Cummins handbook. 1996 - Introduction of first variable speed inverter- based generator. I guess that's why my 1997 Luxor had a QD7500 Inverter generator. [emoticon]

So, looking at the link posted above by SSki, I see Onan states on page 3,

"1996 Introduction of the FIRST variable speed inverter based generator"

I would think since Onan made the statement in their own product manual they would know what they're talking about. I sure wouldn't expect them to publish such a false claim for all these years.

The OP may or may not know what they are trying to say but I gotta' go with Onan on this one. Looks like Onan has had inverter based generators since 1996.

Maybe they've recently come out with some newer model inverter based generators but 1996 is still when they came out with the "FIRST" one. Only one can be first.

I'm also unsure how the OP's experience with lithium batteries makes him an expert on Onan generators. [emoticon]
