After researching generators for over a year to power my travel trailer while boondocking I setted on this unit. It After researching generators for over a year to power my travel trailer while boondocking I setted on this unit. It seem to hit the sweet spot between weight, power and price so it seemed like a good choice. The unit weighs around 60 pounds (68 pounds will a full gas tank) and was easy enough to move around and load into my truck as well. When using items such as the microwave and the AC you can hear the unit throttle up but it pipes down as demand for juice decreases. If your using this for travel trailer, just make sure you get the adapter for the power plug.
It’s the same as a G. Except for the colors and Craftsman decal, it’s identical to a Generac GP3000i. Purchased on sale for about $700 cheaper than the Generac. According to the owner’s handbook, it will be 20 hours until the first oil change. I let the break-in oil run for one hour without load before changing it. Run for another hour with no load before changing the oil. Because I only needed 600ml of oil every change, I used SAE 30 to break it in then Mobil 1 5w-30 for the final fill.
Even at full steam, the noise level is rather tolerable for a 3kw generator since the eco mode idles down well and responds quickly on demand. Fill with costly but ultra-reliable Aspen gasoline, and you’ve got home backup power that can sit for years if necessary.
