Product Overview

The Sportsman Propane 3,250/4,000-Watt Portable Generator can power common household appliances and power tools. RV ready, it is equipped with one 120-Volt RV plug, two 120-Volt outlets and a 12-Volt DC outlet for battery charging. A generator of this size is ideal for small camping or tailgating parties or to have on hand in case you need some temporary power in an emergency situation. It has a 7 HP 4-Stroke OHV recoil start engine. It's affordable but well thought out, with full featured options such as automatic low oil shutdown and automatic voltage regulator. It boasts an engine run time of 10 hours at 50% on a common 20 lb. (gas grill type) cylinder (LPG cylinder not included). A 5 ft. propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 68 dB. This is a great generator for anyone who needs affordable power. Propane has several distinct advantages over gasoline generators. Propane burns cleaner than gas engines. Carbon monoxide emissions run up to 40% lower. Propane will not degrade, so you can keep several propane tanks on hand for emergencies and store them for an unlimited amount of time. Since this generator runs on propane you never have to worry about the fuel going bad or having the carburetor getting fouled due to degenerated gasoline - a common problem with gasoline powered small engines.

  • 120-Volt 27 Amp/240-Volt 15 Amp operation
  • 7-HP, 4-stroke OHV, recoil start engine, delivers maximum performance

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this particular type of generator be brought indoors or does it emit carbon monoxide rendering it unsafe?

Asked by: BigW
emits same CO as any gas powered motor, NO CAN NOT be ran indoors or under any open window or by any open door where the exhaust can enter your home. .

How much noise does it make?

Asked by: Geno
During a power outage today, I was running a 30 amp connection to my camper with the heat pump on cool and my house refrigerator, I got 68 decibels right at the exhaust. Stepping back to the standard 21 feet, it was at 55 decibels. Not too bad. Still not something I'd fire up in a campground if I can avoid it though.

will this generator run the a/c along with the fridge and lights on my camper

its important that I have this information before I buy
Asked by: donnie
(This assumes you're in North America) If your Camper/RV is wired with a 30amp RV plug and everything works correctly when you are connected to a pedestal hookup, this Genset will work fine. Here is the math: 120 volts X 30 amps = 3600 watts maximum draw. RVs that use this plug can have a fridge, 1 AC unit, and even a small microwave. This genset will power everything up to the rating of the service. It will not power an RV that is wired with a 50 amp system. First, 50 amp systems are set up for 240v which isn't an option on this genset. Secondly, the potential wattage draw is much higher: 240 volts X 50 amps = 12000 watts maximum draw. This is obviously a huge difference. In practice most 50 Amp RVs don't draw anywhere near maximum power but, having 2 or 3 AC units will push the draw well past what a 30 amp service can handle.

4,000-Watt Clean Burning LPG Propane Gas Powered Portable Generator with RV Outlet is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 323.

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.

Previously, we have always purchased gasoline powered generators, as we have always had a place to store the gasoline cans safely that is not inside our garage. When we moved into town, with no outside storage space, we studied and reviewed propane generators for several weeks. Propane tanks are much easier to handle than gas cans, and the propane generators are slightly quieter. (Not a lot, but just a little.) The Sportsman4,000-Watt Clean Burning LPG Propane Gas Powered Portable Generator with RV Outlet fits our needs perfectly. It's RV ready, and we can store propane tanks safely inside the garage. When we go camping, my husband can lift it into our truck with no problem. If our power is out due to a storm, it can easily power our refrigerator and a few lights. I would recommend this generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Received dented on top and was able to pull out by hand. Had to tighten inlet valve before hooking up hose. Filled with oil and it started on 4th pull. Ran 30 mins and checked voltage at each outlet- 121 volts ac and 14.6 volts D.C. Ran another 15 min.s then hooked two 1500 watt heaters to two ac outlets slowly up heat and generator handled it well. Not sure about charging battery, does it shut off when battery is fully charged?

I used synthetic oil and think that this is what everyone should do. The unit has one draw back, its really loud. If you run it you will know it, no way around it so forget camping. Great price and bang for the buck!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite 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.
