How much oil does it take to fill the first time before use?

None
Asked by: Ernesto
1qt. SAE30 fixed weight non-synthetic comes with it. Use it for the break-in unless you are in frigid cold then switch to synthetic on your first oil change.

Does generator have a 30amp RV plug in and what is largest AC it can power?

Asked by: Mike
I find the answers to this question, especially the one from B&S, to be very misleading. This generator is designed as a home emergency back up generator and not specifically for the RV market. It has a running power rating of 5000 watts and supports short duration surges up to 6500 watts. 5000 watts corresponds to 20.8 amps when used on a 240 volt load, like a well pump. When powering 120 volt loads, it provides two separate 120 volt circuits that can support up to 2500 watts and 20.8 amps each. These cannot be combined to support a single 120 volt load greater than 20.8 amps or 2500 watts. Since RVs tend to be 120 volt only, the most you'll be able to use is 2500 watts, even if you use a 30 amp RV connector (using an adapter to connect to the generators L1430 plug). Some generators intended for use with RVs have an output voltage switch that will combine the two 120 volt into a single higher capacity circuit available through the 30 amp RV connector. This unit doesn't have that feature.

Bought this after Hurricane Hermine hit and have used it for 3 power outages since, the last being for over two days of outages related to Hurricane Michael. I am not experienced with generators but having an older person in our home I felt I needed to ensure comfort and routine could be maintained and that required a generator. For Hurricane Michael, I used this generator with a Reliance transfer switch (10 switches including a 30 amp) and it performed wonderfully. It was run for about 12 hrs for two days and about 4 hrs a third day. Easy to start. Easy to maneuver around. Once started, we could just forget about it. WE ran it at 25% capacity the majority of the time and it lasted 15 hrs on 5 gallons. We could not hear the generator from inside our house. Very pleased with this purchase.

Product operating instructions were clear and easy to follow. Initial setup was easy and unit started right up. I feel well prepared to deal with the future power emergencies.
