I purchased this generator to use on our houseboat. I did a lot of research on safety and feel that I have a a safe set-up. I couldn't believe the price but it was the reviews that sold me on the product. Most negative reviews came from some issues with shipping damage. I was fortunate not to have any. The generator started on the second pull. It runs great. The sound was louder than anticipated (68 dB). I built a sound suppressing box with fan and exhaust ports that has greatly reduced the noise to the range of a Honda EU2000 inverter generator (53 dB) and it is a far cheaper system. I purchased a Fairview RV Camper LP / Propane 2 Stage Gas Regulator, that automatically changes over from an empty to full tank. I can run the generator the entire weekend without having to change out my propane tanks (10 hour run time at 50% load on a common 20 lb. LPG cylinder). I like the benefits of using propane over gas (Propane burns cleaner than gas engines and carbon monoxide emissions run up to 40% lower). Be sure to have your propane tanks filled instead of exchanging tanks (Exchange tanks are not filled to the maximum legal limit, 20lb tanks often contain only 15lb of fuel). I love having the 120-Volt RV plug. I purchased a Marine 30 amp female to 30 amp male 125v Shore Power Pigtail Boat & RV Adapter that allows me to connect to my 30 amp shore power cord. There are two additional 120-Volt and one 12-Volt DC outlet that allows me to even charge a spare battery. This unit powers our A/C unit on our houseboat and refrigerator along with my boat systems with no problems.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TexasGal I gave this a midline rating and a 'yes' recommendation because I'm sure it is a fine generator. But, because I wanted an LP generator for use during inclement weather while camping it won't work for me. Unfortunately, after picking up this generator, I found there is no wheel kit for this model, and the outlets are NOT covered. Therefore, using it outdoors in inclement weather
( what I wanted it for ) is not advisable. Shame on me for not doing more research on this particular model, but when I saw the price drop under $300 I jumped on it.
If you don't need portability and would use this in a covered area it would be great. But I would suggest a model with the built-in LP tank carrier AND wheels if you plan to use it outdoors.

Generator works as advertised. Starts on second pull (very first time took 5 or 6 pulls to get propane in the line). Runs my 30 amp rated RV. Ran A/C and micro - did not try both at same time though. Really like the propane idea as we always have it with the RV, and this way I don't have to worry about fouled carberators or storing gas (both long term or while camping). Good buy. Seems about as loud as a normal generator. I'm going to build one of those sound boxes when I get around to it.

I've had a few gens and I'll admit I may get a couple of weird looks but it's worth it if I don't have to add fuel saver. Had the gen in the back of my truck for a week as I slowly moved down the boulevard repairing all the street signs. Never failed me once and barely used any fuel. Up next...RV'ing in the wild.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry A Purchase that had been looked forward too
The Propane powered portable generator is not large enough to run the whole house, but this one wasn't intended for that purpose. The price was great and this unit can set aside until I need some additional power in an emergency and it definitely will replace having to run a "long" extension cord to do work outside of the house. Less than a 100 pounds (Home Depot does not have a wheel kit for this unit available-the purchase of a wheel kit for another generator and adapting to this generator cost less than $20).
Imagine having over 3,000 watts of clean power available, ease of handling, no gasoline to deal with and its associated storage problems. (Gunk in carburetor and old fuel). Might end up wishing I had purchase two.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Overall, the best generator I have found for my travel trailer
The generator arrived exactly when it was promised and was in perfect condition. I hooked up a propane tank and it started and ran on the second pull. It is light enough for even a heart patient, like me, to load it into my truck and just performs as it was intended. I started it in a quiet campground and immediately had two neighbor campers come and marvel at how quiet it was. I am very pleased with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tigger Great buy
Bought this as a back up for storms in Florida. Put oil in it and attached lpg tank and it fired up right away. I mane a wheeled dolly to move it as it is heavy. Also installed an hour meter sold on line. Have now run it 0.7 hours and so far it's great. Lpg is better as it does not clog carburetor and last longer on a tank of gas. Great buy at great ptrce

I purchased this generator to use as a back up for our living quarters horse trail. When I receive it, filled it with oil, connected propane tank and it cranked on the third pull. Have not used for an extended period yet, but tested on my LQ and powered 13,500 btu AC just fine.
