Product Overview

The WEN Super-Quiet 3,800 Watt Inverter Generator produces clean energy free of voltage spikes and drops. Generate up to 3800 surge watts and 3400 rated watts of power. Our 212cc 4-stroke air-cooled OHV engine operates at an extremely quiet 57 decibels at quarter load, about as quiet as a window air conditioner or the average conversation. The WEN 3800W Inverter Generator is also equipped with fuel shutoff. This turns off the flow of fuel, allowing the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down to prevent unwanted buildup. Designed to mirror a pure sine wave, this generator limits total harmonic distortion to under 0.3 percent at no load and under 1.2 percent at full load, making it safe enough to run laptops, cellphones, monitors, tablets and other vulnerable electronics. The lightweight design along with the built-in wheels and folding handle make for easy portability while the ultra-efficient 2.2-gallon tank provides over 8.5 hours of half-load run time. Our fully-packed panel comes equipped with two 3-prong 120V standard household receptacles, one AC 120V 30A NEMA TT-30R twist lock receptacle, one 12V DC receptacle, two 5V USB ports and an easy-to-read digital fuel and load display. Maximize fuel economy by engaging the Eco-Mode switch. Easily link up two WEN inverter generators using a WEN GNA50i 50-Amp 6000-Watt Parallel Connection Kit (sold separately) in order to share wattage between multiple units.
  • Extremely quiet operation minimizes noise; EPA III and CARB Compliant
  • 212cc 4-stroke OHV engine produces 3800 surge watts and 3400 rated watts with a half-load runtime of up to 8.5 hours
  • Fuel shutoff maximizes the generator's lifespan by using up the remaining fuel in the carburetor before shutting down
  • Produces clean power to prevent damage to sensitive electronics such as smart phones, tablets and laptops
  • Includes two 3-prong 120V receptacles, one AC 120V NEMA TT-30R RV receptacle, one 12V DC receptacle, two 5V USB ports, a digital load and fuel display, and a 2-year warranty

I guess we will find out, that's what it stated in the setup guide.

Asked by Troop January 12, 2021

Answer

For house use you should be at least 20 ft away from the home for safety reasons. And you don't really want to go over 50 ft in length because you start to lose power.

generators do NOT safely run in the rain .

Does this generator have a bonded neutral, or a floating neutral?

Asked by JohnSWood December 24, 2020
1
Answer

It’s a floating neutral, this can be verified on WEN’s website under the generator’s specs. Most generators for transfer switch and RV use are set up that way because homes and RV’s already provide the neutral.

I recently purchased the Champion 100889. It's within the return period. The Champion is a great ...

Answer

You might have trouble getting the wen to run your 1700 watt load reliably as it would not run my 2100 watt load which runs fine on multiple other smaller generators.

This is a amazing generator
I did alot of research online and came across this one. I watched videos on YouTube and was very impressed. I ordered this on the Home Depot websites also had free shipping to store. I got it home got 30w oil for a 4 stroke. Removed the 4 brackets on the base plate. Filled it up with 18oz of oil. Then put about 2 gallons of gas. Turned the dial to start and pushed button. Fired right up then turned to run... People this generator is super quiet. I must say as quiet as a honda. The handle is awsome for moving around or has 2 grab handles for lifting. WOW i must say I am impressed. ***** 5 stars for this one

Ordered this generator after researching many others and found this one to be a better fit for my needs. I had it delivered to my local Home Depot store and picked it up on the delivery date they indicated. Went flawless... Once home, I followed the directions as described, used Just regular 10w30 motor oil for break -in, let it run for about 20 minutes without a load. Drained and repeated the process. Drained again and added 5w30 synthetic as per recommendations and then run it under a 50% load for about an hour. This is a very quiet running machine and no hiccups at all. So far I am happy about the purchase and if anyone is looking for a quiet generator, this one fits the bill. I powered up my A/C, Fridge, All lights (all LED), TV and Micro in my Rv and didn't trip any breakers on the unit. It was pushing it though. The coffee pot and the micro really cranks it up especially when A/C is running and usually I don't run those at the same time anyway. Under ECO, runs very quiet and once under the heavy load it does get a bit louder but not much. Rv parks wont hate you with this one. Took it out for the maiden voyage and ran it all weekend long without a problem. So, without a doubt, I would recommend this Wen Generator. Just follow the instructions, keep it maintained and it should last a long time.

The WEN Super Quiet 3800-Watt Gas-Powered RV-Ready Portable Inverter Generator with Fuel Shut-Off...
The WEN Super Quiet 3800-Watt Gas-Powered RV-Ready Portable Inverter Generator with Fuel Shut-Off and Electric Start is a very handy generator to have. This generator can do pretty much anything I want it to do, aside from powering my house without the proper transfer switch and parallel kit. This unit is very easy to use and powers my 15,000 BTU AC unit along with my microwave inside my trailer. The unit is very quiet for it's size, it's nearly twice the size of a Honda 2000 generator and makes just a little bit more noise. Make note, this generator is pretty big, it weighs nearly 100 pounds without fuel, but comes equipped with pull handle and wheel kit. It has the easy to hook-up RV connection and the Electric start is very handy. It has a parallel port if you wanted to hook up another, and the available parallel kit allows you to hook up a transfer switch if you have one. This unit is also equipped with USB ports and standard 110 outlets. The equivalent-sized Honda is nearly twice the price and is rated at a higher DB level than this unit, and I haven't had any issues with this generator at all. I'm very tempted to buy a second one and install a transfer switch on my house in case the power goes out in the future.

I have 200 hours so far and it’s been flawless a little hard to start after it sets a couple hours no matter if u choke it or not it cranks excessively in my opinion it’s not as quiet as my Honda 3000 but it’s close enough not to complain especially it being a bigger gen. All in all for 800 bucks u can’t beat it I can run my 15k btu air conditioner and microwave at same time in my RV

Appears well made. It's extremely quiet. Has excellent control panel. Starts easily with e-start or even on pull cord. It's quite compact for the output and easy to move around. Time will tell for durability.
