Can anyone who has run an RV Air conditioner tell me how they did it without the 30 Amp style plug or 30 Amp twist lock plug? I can't see how this generator can run a 15,000 BTU A/C unit off a 110 volt 15 amp outlet like the one on the front panel of this generator?
Asked by: RVACGuy
I bought the Westinghouse parallel cord and plugged it into both outlets. It has the 30 amp plug and two 15 amp plugs. Works great.

does it have 12v inverter

does it have 12v inverter
Asked by: Larry
Your question is a bit confusing. An “inverter” takes dc power, like 12 volts from a car battery and produces alternating current like you use to power a microwave in your home. This generator uses an inverter to produce 120 AC power. If you’re looking for a 12 volt DC power socket, then no, it doesn’t offer that feature. A device that produces 12 volt DC power from 120 volt AC is commonly called a “converter”.

2,500/2,200-Watt Super Quiet Gas Powered Inverter Generator with LED Display is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1049.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from DO YOUR DUE DILLIGENCE! Short and sweet! I did A LOT of research and you should too. Reviews indicated units arrived with broken spark plugs, bought a new one before my unit arrived. When it did arrive, yep spark plug was broken. Reviews also said to use a magnetic oil filler plug and break unit in properly. I did and glad I did. Lot of garbage in the first oil change at 1 hour. Now for the good, reviews suggested putting upper cylinder oil in cylinder without spark plug and pulling it slowing to lubricate the cylinder prior to starting. I did this with 2 tablespoons of Lucas oil, installed new plug and the dang thing started first pull. Smoked due to the oil but cleared up in minutes and off we go. Runs quiet and YAHOO, mine came with an hour meter. Wish I had known that before I installed the hour meter. It says nothing about it in the owners manual but the last item listed under the digital display is LIFE TIME RUN HOURS!. Time will tell but I will update if there is a need.

He uses them in tandem to power an arch-welder and all of his power tools in his 20 ft long trailer workshop; and he is quite satisfied. For me, I own a Lance camper and travel for a living, and sometimes I am away for months at a time. I needed a portable generator that would power everything in the camper, including my ham radio equipment, my laptop, and, especially, the air conditioning; though the air conditioning pretty much maxes it out, so I probably won't be able to run the ham radio at full power while running the air conditioning on high. This generator fills the bill. It is much quieter and lighter (about ten pounds lighter) than the old Kawasaki 1400, which couldn't handle the air conditioning, anyway. Three cheers for Westinghouse!

Usually 3 times a year, maybe 6 hours or so long, sometimes longer. My street is on a bad grid. Finally had enough. Wanted something simple. I got the 2500. Seems like a quality product. Comes with a container of oil and a funnel. I like the fact that it is very light weight. Carrying 48 lbs with a grip from your side seems even lighter. A lot quieter than I expected. Started right up. The LED display shows fuel level, volts, wattage, run time. It also has an illuminated display bar which shows % of wattage being used and % of fuel remaining. Very nice .Has a shut off for low oil and overload. I did test the overload out on two space heaters that put out 1400 watts each, so at 2800 it did trip off. I removed the heaters, hit the reset button and it fired back up. I really like it. Made in USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful little generator, quality control issues After much research into which suitcase size generator had the best options, performance, decibel level, and price point I came to the conclusion that the Westinghouse iGen2500 fit that bill. This model is the same size as most 2000 surge/1700 run size generators, but this one performs at 2500 surge/2200 run capability. It also has some handy digital monitoring that most small generators don't. My concern was that a number of reviewers on various sites reported receiving damaged units from the factory, specifically broken spark plugs and spark plug caps. I reside in Canada and would have ordered from a Canadian supplier to simplify the return process (in case this was needed), however the only Canadian retailers for this generator, Home Depot Canada and Amazon.ca, had no stock and had no known restock date. So, hoping I would not need to submit a return I ordered one from Home Depot USA who had the best U.S price I could find, but required a trip to the U.S to pick up as they will not ship to Canada. To my dismay the unit I received was damaged. The spark plug was cracked, and the engine shut-off switch (behind the front panel) was broken. The spark plug was no big deal, but the kill-switch repair would have involved major disassembly, so it had to be returned, which meant a return trip to the border, as Home Depot would only cover return shipping within the U.S. and UPS could not figure out how to charge me just the difference. Home Depot handled the return very quickly. By the time all this took place, I discovered stock of this item was available in Canada thru Amazon.ca again so I was able to re-order the item within Canada. The second unit arrived with some serious crud/sediment in the gas tank, and what looked like small rust spots and staining on the inner gas tank walls that required numerous flushes to clear, but no physical damage was evident. I decided to take a chance that the crud appeared since the factory run-up and hope a good rinsing will prevent any further issues. It appears to have a small inline fuel filter that should catch any remaining sediment, and can be replaced if required. After careful break-in it seems to be operating as well as I'd hoped, and is able to run numerous tools and produce the expected 2500/2200 watts. The digital monitoring is very nice, cycling thru the various information modes and keeping me notified of all the important data regarding its operation. A friend who works in construction and uses numerous of the expensive "H" variety generators confirms this unit is as quiet as their red units, which is supposedly where the bar has been set. So despite the initial quality control issues, I will give it a 4 star rating for now, hoping the initial purchase experiences don't reflect the longevity I hope to get out of this generator, to be used as my supplemental RV power supply. Here's hoping Westinghouse reads this and corrects the problems coming out of the factory so others can enjoy their fine product without the hassles of returns and having to deal with these sorts of issues in a brand new unit.

I have only tested the unit so far, not "had" to use it, but it works as advertised. Setup was straightforward, instructions are easy to understand. The unit is light and relatively quiet. I set it up about 25 feet away from where my wife and I were working to let it run with various garage appliances plugged into it (space heater, radio, shop lights, grinder, etc.) and we could have a conversation without having to yell to each other. It will only be "loud" when under a heavy load (the space heater on full blast).

Most generators in its class can not candle the camper and its AC but 2,200 running watts gives that little extra kick that you need to do the job. The only real problem that I have had with it is when it is cold. Cold as in when the outside temperature is below 38 degrees F.When it is cold this beauty does not like to start so well, once running and warmed up it keeps the pace all day long. Would I purchase a second one, heck yes with a parallel kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp size and unit weight 2,200 Operating Amps is ideal for boondocking my travel Camper. Should run everything I have from AC to microwave to toaster oven, just not all at once. Light weight 22Kg and compact size make it very portable. After adding Oil it started first pull. Like efficiency mode and the data display. Works great under loads up to 1,450 Watt steady draw, haven't pushed to 75% of output power yet... Will check back in after boondocking for five days this May.
