Re: Generator mounting

I don't know much about electrical systems, but there has been lengthy discussion on this board about how much juice is required for various appliances. I recommend you do some searches and see what has been discussed.

Re: Generator mounting

I've seen some Class A's that mount them on a pull out in front of the bus. Of course if you have an engine in the front then it wouldn't work. But I'm wondering if it would work with a RE. is there room up front that would allow it to be mounted up front on a RE?

I ran my rear bumper mounted Champion generator while rolling on a 1400 mile trip last August. Needed it to run my AC and a fan to move the cool air around. I t was also handy to have my dorm frig powered up the whole time, cold drinks during the trip, cold mixers when the key was switched off!

Wisht I had someplace underneath to do a works-in-a-drawer install...
