The generator arrived last week, but we still have not fired it up. I wanted to add the optional swivel wheel kit before adding fluids to the generator.
I installed the wheel kit yesterday and asked a neighbor to help me lift the generator into the truck bed. The next step is to fill the sump with oil, put some gas in the tank and fire the generator up.
After initially running the generator, I will shut it down, drive the truck across the road and hook it up to the trailer to start charging the batteries. I may also test the generator under the maximum load with the trailer’s air conditioner activated.
I took this photo of the generator in the truck bed this evening. On the far side of the front panel is the adapter that converts the generators 30kVA outlet to the 30 amp connector configuration common to most RVs. Clickable image.
