Is there an adapter that I can plug into the 4 prong twist and safely convert to my RV's 30A 3 prong plug?
Asked by: John
John, Yes, it's ti CAMICO part no. 55338 adapter. It adapts the L14-30 4-pin 30 Amp twist lock 120v-240v to your camper plug TT 30. I shopped around and got mine on eBay for $13.47 with free shipping. Arrived in 2 days.

Q6500 QuietPower Series 6,500 Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Inverter Generator with Briggs and Stratton Engine is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth running and low noise First of all, out of the box, this is a nice compact looking generator set. Setup was super easy and after fuel added and oil checked, was running by second pull. Engine operation both under load and not under load is smooth with low noise. Generator set was put through it's paces and with few test loads of wall AC units, fridge and a few electronics with not even a whimper it could not handle it. Power delivery to both appliance and electronics was smooth with no noticeable power ripples you would get with other traditional generator sets. Long term reliability is not yet in but so far, I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this unit. You never want to be without electric in time of need Something I have been wanting and wishing I had since the last power outage we had that lasted for 5 days. This unit is perfect. If you only ever need it once it is worth its weight in gold. It is a much smaller size wise than other standard generators. Making this so much easier to move around in and out of doors when in use. A telescopic handle that locks in and out of place to easily manuever this unit where needed. smaller size yes but it still delivers 5,000 running watts and is super quiet during operation. With this 306cc engine. Always use this generator outdoors and face the unit exhaust side away from your home or building.Fantastic design looks great.Super easy pull start, clear controls and easy instructions to get you up and powered when you need it. This unit weighs about 141 pounds. It has 4 - 110volt/ 20amp outlets 2 USB port to plug in your electronics to charge. And also has a 110/240 outlet. Not something I will use every day. But I have a warm fuzzy feeling now that I know I have it in case we have electric failure in the future. Being left in the cold once, in the dark and or without refrigerator/freezer is no joke. This Briggs & Stratton will service my needs exactly if the time arises. I trust this brand and feel confident it will be here ready to service when I need it most. Note for the first operation of this generator be sure to remove the 2 pouches of oil that is required to be placed in the generator before its operation. They are behind the back wall of the unit. You need only a Phillip head screwdriver to remove three screws. remove the yellow plug insert oil and place the oil cap back on tightly and you can then screw the back wall back in place. Gasoline is filled on the top of this unit. Also has a quick start chart that you can hang on a wall nearby explaining the operation of the generator.I suggest you invest in a large funnel and two minimum 25 ft. size outdoor extension cords and keep them with your unit so you have everything in one area easy to get to if the need is there. Thank you so much Briggs & Stratton and Home Depot for providing quality merchandise I depend on. Every homeowner I recommend should have this backup generator. Peace of mind and dependability when you need it most. Two thumbs up..

It is also light weight and easy enough to handle and maneuver - light enough for a lady to use if the man isn't at home. A perfect unit for all homes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this so far It was time to update and replace our old generator and we settled on this one. This unit is surprisingly quiet, nice size and adequate output without being a huge unit. So far on the trial runs it also seems to be much more efficient on fuel than our old generator too. It starts early and the panels options for plugging in powering are great. This is a well built, convenient and compact little powerhouse. Now that we are entering the storm season time of the year again we feel much safer and better prepared. If you are looking for a portable generator this one seems pretty hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living in the countryside we get a dozen or more power outages each year. Uninterruptible power ... Living in the countryside we get a dozen or more power outages each year. Uninterruptible power supplies keep our computers and TV running for an hour, but longer outages require the use of a gas generator. Our old generator is difficult to start and has only half the capacity of the Q6500. Setup for the Q6500 is simple, just requiring adding engine oil. At 128 lbs this is no lightweight but the large wheels and retractable handle make it easy to move around even on the gravel and sand between our detached carport and house. During a dry run the generator started easily. In the month we have owned the generator there have been no power outages, but thunderstorm season is here so we are unlikely to be so lucky next month, but we are confident that this generator will keep our household powered whatever the weather throws at us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Generator I am very impressed with this generator. The decibel level is definitely below other generators we have had. With its large wheels, transporting is also easier on our rocky ground. It powers up up everything we would need when using it on remote areas of our ranch and will come in handy in the event we need it for back-up in the winter months. Highly recommend this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Intelligent I like that it runs intelligent as much power as you need to be more fuel efficient. It sounds wonderful and is not too noisy. It's not too heavy so I can move it around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet I like this generator because the noise is not too loud. Portability is good to use with my camper with the handle and wheels
