Re: Where do i put a generator?

It depends a little on what style of generator you have. in any case, you don't want it inside your bus, unless the world has treated you cruelly enough that you want out.
If it's a built-in, motorhome style unit, you'll want to make some brackets to mount it to the frame, under your bus. If there isn't space, maybe build a box that protrudes up through the floor but is sealed from the interior.
If you have a portable generator, and have under-belly storage compartments, those are a good place, or make yourself a bracket to hold it in front or behind your bus to use it in motion. At camp you can just put it on the ground, but get a chain and padlock at the very least.

Sometimes, depending on the bus, your genny, and maybe your ability to move things, you can get it in the engine compartment if it's a rear-engine bus.

Re: Where do i put a generator?

I'm still wondering just what I'm going to do with my EU2000i. Has anyone permanently or semi-permanently "mounted" theirs anywhere on their bus? If so, where, and how?
