Like The Dual Fuel

I was pleased the unit arrived a day early and FedX must of handled it with kid gloves as no damage to shipping box, likewise no damage to MFG box. The unit had heavy form fitting Styrofoam so unit could not move around, must of read older reviews. Bought 10W30 added 18.5 oz checked dipstick measured 1/2 above min. will top off after next use. Hooked up 30# RV propane bottle only minor problem was some burs in the brass generator connector, so had trouble hooking hose to gen. Got brass wire battery terminal brush out of my tool kit and cleaned up brass fitting, hand tightened no further problem. Turned on propane tank, closed choke, started second pull, adjusted choke till running smooth 30 seconds, ran for 5 min, shut down by closing bottle shut off power when stopped. Restarted at 5th wheel 1/2 choke 1st pull, ran 13,500 A/C unit :30 min started cooling camper, fits on furniture dolly for ease of moving around, far more quiet than old set, just a hum inside w/windows closed and what a good price.


Good product.

I liked the fact that I can use propane rather than gas. I won't have to worry about the fuel going bad and gumming up the carb. The size and weight is good for me to move and store. Works great! I will update on longevity later.


Good product.

It light weight about 90 lb easy to pull start always use propane because it never goes bad next year or 5 years from now


Good product.

Looks to be of good quality but was missing accessory package and am waiting for delivery to hook up gas. Seller had no issue with replacing missing accessories


Great generator, but.....

I like the generator, seems to do the job, and is fairly quiet. We have a 26 foot camper trailer with a slide out, so we purchased this for more primitive locals. I really like the dual fuel option, I haven't tried putting petrol in it, I am using LPG for as long as I can, it burns cleaner and will extend the life of the carb. The reason for the 3 stars is related to the frame design. We were not able to plug a standard 3 prong 30 amp rv cord into the generator because the front frame bar interfered with the standard cord. I constructed my own 30 amp extension cord with 12/3 wire and straight 3 prong construction grade replacement plugs. The offset standard rv cord will not work, so just be aware of that.
