Hello I am looking for something to use while bowfishing i am trying to run 3- 500 watt halogen flood lights last weekend we tried to run 2 of the lights mentioned on a generac 2000 watt and it overloaded Just wondering if this genorator would get the job done
Greg Gothreaux

Answer
One of the biggest issues with generators and night fishing lights is they are halogen bulbs which require a high starting surge and you would require a large generator which would be too noisy when fishing late at night. I recommend that you stick with batteries.

From some research on bow fishing, many experts do not exceed 2 lights per battery which may be the best option for your application.

Also, it is not recommended to have a generator in a fishing boat.

Jim, Can the 12v tap be used to charge a battery? I'm thinking of this for my car trailer to provide occasional 120v for small power tools, but it would be nice if it could charge the winch battery (not run the winch). I'll also be looking for a 6000-6500 for my big enclosed hauler to run a small compressor and shop tools inside. It will be mounted up in the goose-neck, so sound is a concern. Your suggestion? Larry

Answer
Yes, the 12VDC outlet is designed to charge batteries. Please review the charging instructions on page 8 in the owner's manual.

Owner's Manual

The only models we have capable for outside, permanent mount installations for RV use would be our RV generators.

You should take a look at the Cummins Onan or Generac models that can operate on NG, LP or Gasoline...see link for details.

I have a pop-up with ac, heat, lights, tv and radio. What size do I need?
Howard Lawson

Answer
Your biggest challenge is powering the air conditioner. Since you have a pop-up, you probably don't have a compartment for an RV generator.

This model is better designed for short-term bursts of power. You'll want something much quieter like an inverter generator.

The following article will provide you with some good details on which generator will work best for roof-top air conditioners.How to Power a Roof-Top Air Conditioner

Looking for a generator to keep my sump pump functional during a power outage. I will only use it for the sump pump. What size would you recommend?
Bob Papas 
from Indiana

Answer
It really depends on the size and starting amperage of your sump pump. An average 1/3HP sump pump can require an "estimated" 1300 starting watts whereas a 1/2HP sump pump can require an "estimated" 2150 starting watts. Rule of thumb is the size the generator to 80% of the units running capacity so the unit has enough flexibility to handle a large load when it starts and allows the unit to provide proper voltage output without a major voltage drop.
