If it's made by Schneider than it should be good. I have never used one though, I do have a C12 and love it.

For *just* a refrigerator, continuous load should be easily under 200 watts. When I've measured several of mine they've been maybe 120 watts running. That'd only be about 12 amps off the alternator through an inverter and likely whatever alternator is already on the bus would do fine. Just set up a 500-1000 watt inverter and you're probably good to go. It's when people get into bigger loads like A/C or heating/cooking that a super-duty alternator, generator, etc needs to be brought in.

I agree Mr Wagon. Most of these buses already have pretty big alternators in them don't they?

Jester, that generator does look good but it appears to be old, like a garage queen. They've wiped off the dust. It may work fine but something old is going to have problems, especially if you're leaning on it hard sometimes. For that kind of money go with something newer. All these gasoline engines seem to need the carbs gone over every couple years with this ethanol gas.
