Im using a hot dog roller, cotton candy machine, popcorn machine, and a deep fryer-funnel cake. Is this strong enough?

Do I need a generator extension cord as well?
Asked by: Dee
The best thing to do is look on the appliances you want to run and add up the amount of wattages that they use. That being said, I have this generator for backup power to my house. It runs my 240 amp well pump, 2 refrigerators, living room lights, and all the plugs in my living room where the tv is.

Is this generator good for a food trailer, powering two refrigerators, lights and warmer or two

Asked by: Tim
I have a BBQ trailer and it powers my rooftop AC, 1 fridge, lights, water pump, 3 large smokers. I have a 100 amp breaker box in my trailer and this has no issue. My only thing is that it is a little loud
