How long a pull rope would you need?
I did think about putting the gen on the roof, but I think over all it would be a big pain in the butt.
If all goes well Ill have a box built and install it beside the batter box, you can have lots of ventulation with out it overheating and getting covered in road debris, the overplan is to place it on the rear deck, even there it will have to have some type of cover, keep it from walking away, and rain etc.
just my 2 cents, after about 6 pack or 2 you will say hey Im a skoolie, and if I want I will mount it anyplace I want!!!
keep us posted
