Just bought a pop up camper it has a 220 plug, with a 220 to 110 cable do you think it will power it ok ? The main draw would be the a/c unit on top

Asked by: Michaeljo
The pop-up has a 30 amp 110 plug, it's not 220 volt. The plug is an RV 110 volt plug. The adapter you have will convert the RV plug to a standard 20 amp two prong plug with ground. The adapter plug will power the AC if it is the only electrical draw on the circuit. Once you start adding an electric coffee pot, refrigerator, or microwave, chances are you will overload the circuit and trip the breaker.

RYOBI 3,600 Running Watt 212cc Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 676.

So, with the tropical storm from Irma on the way in Georgia, I told myself that I would purchase a generator as soon as I saw one no matter the cost. I was really hoping to buy a battery generator since I knew that most if not all of the generators would be gone. By a miracle and a couple of days searching, I manage to find one on Sunday morning. At first was questioning on the mere possibility of even using this or even needing it. In the end I decided on purchasing it for my family but mostly for the comfort of my wife who is currently pregnant with about 4 weeks to go. I can honestly say that this generator is a lifesaver. I am currently watching Netflix, sending emails, keeping one of two fridges cold, two rotating fans on and lamp. The unit has been running non stop for 8 hours and counting. With about 1.5 million without power in Georgia currently, I will highly recommend this unit for anybody who is looking to keep their family safe and comfy.

I ordered this generator through Home Depot online just as Hurricane Irma was approaching. It arrived four days after the hurricane - we still have no power. I pulled it out of the box (which did not seem to be damaged), poured in the oil and gasoline and prepared to start it. That's when I noticed the start/choke lever seemed to be missing. Looking under the cowling, I see it - broken off at the plastic stem. Poorly designed (see photo). This stem should have been made of more sturdy stuff. The lever sticks out when it is in place, so any external force on the box in the right spot will simply break it off during shipment. We were so looking forward to getting this generator - it was going to be our salvation. Needless to say, it wasn't. Now I'm out the $300+, but still have no generator. I've seen other reviews about the fragility of the throttle lever - why doesn't Ryobi fix this??? Called Home Depot, but due to the hurricane, they have no replacements. Sorry about that. Very Dissappointed

Ran continuously for 46 hours except for stopping to refill the gas tank. Better than expected gas usage. Kept refrigerator, sump pump, internet, 1 PC and some lights going during a power outage after a storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this genset I bought this generator a couple of years ago, slightly used. I use it to power my work trailer which is stationary. This generator has set outside in the weather, uncovered, 24/7 365 for nearly two years. I have had to replace a couple of Parts like the on-off switch and the fuel lines but that's probably from sun fade and dry. Although I can't be one hundred percent sure, I'm fairly certain I would not have needed to replace these parts if it was stored indoors. This unit Powers mainly air conditioning or heat but also power tools. I don't usually run power tools and the air conditioner at the same time. It definitely won't do the air conditioner and the air compressor at the same time but it does power several lights, a charge Wizard and 12 volt accessories. I'm not sure how long it actually runs on a tank but I know I can work all day long without refilling it after starting with it full. My guess would be 12 to 16 hours. I'm very happy with this unit.

I really like Ryobi as a brand, so it pains me to have to leave a 1 star review for this generator, but I could never recommend this to anyone. You could not rely on this generator in an emergency. I have 900 hours on mine and it needs to be repaired every 100-150 hours. To put in perspective, that means you would only be able to run it for 4 days in an emergency, if you're lucky. It takes 3 weeks to get it back from the warranty repair shop and for me it's an 80 mile round trip. Very annoying. The biggest issue I have is the part that the throttle linkage attaches to is too soft of a metal and the linkage wears through after only 100-150 hours. When that happens, the thing is useless because it will either stick on full throttle and over rev or it will go to almost no throttle and not generate electric. Other issues: The muffler vibrated apart at the welds. The handle for the frame broke because of thin metal. The pull starter has had to be replaced twice (because of the internal mechanism, not the pull cord it's self).

My husband and I live in St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We were lucky enough to purchase the Ryobi 3600 just two weeks before the first of two Category 5 Hurricanes blasted through the Caribbean. We lost power to our home on September 6th, 2017 and didn't get it back until January 2nd, 2018. That's 119 days (4 months). During that time, this generator was truly our lifeline. It started up easily every single time, and ran without any issues for 6-8 hours per day, every day. It was enough to run the basic necessities: full-size fridge/freezer, water pump, a power strip so we could plug in a fan, lamp, and charge our devices, and even our washing machine...all at once! Gas usage was quite efficient compared to what we heard from friends using other brands. I can't recommend this generator enough. We plan to purchase more Ryobi products so we'll be even more prepared for the next hurricane season!

I have three separate tools that all run off of 20amp GFI outlets with no problem, however this generator cannot even start them. One compressor turns over at about 10RPM, so you can hear it slowly turning, but it will not actually start. If I plug the compressor into a 15amp outlet (120volt), it runs fine. I will be returning this to the store for a refund. 3600/120 is 30 amps, and this generator cannot even put out 15 amps on one leg. Even running a new Bosch 120v table saw it bogs down. For the price, I would have expected that this would be close to the 40amp starting current on the nameplate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy for a woman to use I bought this when the power went out in July and my old generator had failed. Took it home and was able to assemble it in minutes in the dark, fill it up and fire it up. I am not a ver strong female and have some weakness from an illness and I am able to pull the cord and get it running on the first try EVERY TIME! I LOVE THIS GENERATOR.... It is super easy to use and very fuel efficient. I ran two fridges, a deep freezer, a fan, charged phones, ran a shop light and a sump for 3.5 days and only used about 10 -12 gallons of gas.
