Questions & Answers

will the 240 plug convert to a 30 amp three prong outlet?

we have 30 amp 4000 watt needs for our rv, if I add a 3 prong 30 amp adapter to the 50 amp plug will it convert?
Asked by: bill
You can technically convert any 4 wire 240V source to a 3 wire 120V source. You need to take either line 1 or line 2 with the other 2 conductors (the ground and neutral) to make a regular 120 volt source.

Does anyone know what the Noise Level is?

I have checked several sites and can not find what the noise level is.
Asked by: Loretta
I do not know but we run it in our attached garage with the exhaust piped outside and it isn't bad plus my neighbors haven't come over and yelled at me YET. They have been invited over when it gets cold in their home. Bribery?

Why are the Westinghouse generators so much more fuel efficient than all the rest? Its either brilliant or suspicious.

Compare to comparably sized Generac or others--major difference!
Asked by: Steve
I know that's what everyone says. We haven't used ours that long to get an accurate reading so I cannot vouch for that. The engine sure sounds strong though. Maybe it's in the carburation. I don't know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and good value-I added an hour meter I bought this generator based upon the overall reviews. It seems to be one of the best reviewed generators on the market. I would agree with those reviews. Since this generator does not come with an hour meter, I purchased one and installed it. I then ran it for about 20 hours with the oil that came with it. I then changed the oil and put in synthetic. My research on this seemed to indicate that the break-in period should be done with regular oil. The hour meter I used was a Honeywell 28104 for about $30. It requires a 2" round hole and I wired it directly to one of the ac outlets. A generator really needs an hour meter so you know when to change oil.

I unpacked and assembled the wheels and added fluids. On the first run I discovered the fuel line broken and leaking fuel. It took multiple calls over a period of 3-weeks to customer service and the warranty provider to get repair approval and locate a service center. I then had to take the generator to the service center to have the repair completed.

Even came with installed hour-meter which I thought I would have to order and install myself. Will know more about how much I like this generator after about twenty years ..... how long I had the one it replaced. This unit needs free air flow on the right left and rear when running. The larger than standard muffler does make it somewhat quieter than my old Coleman unit. There is a new Westinghouse unit with the same general ratings that has the larger 420 cc engine ... had I known I would have purchased it instead. It appears to use less fuel at the load I normally use.
