It doesn't look like this can run an RV with a 30 AMP system? I see 4 prong, not 3?

Asked by travis April 12, 2021
1
Answer

The "4 prong" socket is 240V NOT 120V. This clearly indicated in the documentation. To supply 120V 30A you would need a splitter cable which would give you 2x 120V 30A outlets. Each of those 120V 30A outputs would be 180 degrees out of phase. To my knowledge that cable is NOT commercially available. Either have an electrician make one up for you or learn about 240V split phase power. Additionally, drawing power off of only 1 phase is potentially detrimental to the gen head & will likely wear out the engine prematurely. A better choice for an RV would be Westinghouse's WGEN5300 or the WGEN5300DF set to 120V output, which is selectable on the front panel (DF = Dual Fuel, Gas or Propane). I own one of these, a fine little genny reasonably priced w/ all the same features of the 7500.

No, THD is too high (23%), you need an inverter generator (THD 3%) for that application.

I recommend you contact Westinghouse Customer Center at 855-944-3571 with your question.

The battery charger has a red and green led. Does green mean charging, and red mean fully charged?

When charging my WGEN 7500DF with the supplied battery tender, I only have an amber light on my generator (saying it is charging). Here is a link to the owner's manual (see page 27): https://cdn.westinghouseoutdoorpower.com/owners_manuals/WGen7500_manual_web.pdf

Asked by Russell December 4, 2020

I generally manually push the choke on until mine starts (always quick) then push the choke open after it starts, this keeps from wearing the battery and starter out and provide near instant starts. They do seem to have a flaw with the choke closing enough but after running a while it has no problem starting on its own.

How many hours will it run on just propane.

Had this delivered and picked it up in great condition at my local Home Depot. Very simple to set up the wheels and feet. Put almost the whole quart of included oil in which is mandatory prior to starting. The Remote FOB came already programmed and the battery was installed, I just had to push the connection together. I got familiar with the manual that was clear & informative. I'm alternating 2 propane tanks. I suggest using NON Ethanol gas and use of a 4 prong 30 amp GEN cord- mine fans into 4- 120v outlets. I'm also using 12 Gauge extension cords. Generator started right up and should power fridge, portable AC or Pellet stove, TV, Lights etc. Westinghouse offers a free polyester Generator cover with product registration, I'm still waiting for. Excellent 5 star product.

Decided on the WGen7500DF. The best generator with all the features that are necessary. Dual Fuel, remote start, transfer switch ready. Smooth and reliable generator.

Received my Generator yesterday very well packaged, unpacking was a breeze, very nice generator. Easy to assemble the wheels and front pegs. Haven’t tried the Propane yet, did test run on gas started right up, for the price point I think it’s a great choice. This is my first generator hope to get many years of use,, very impressed, with remote start, I’m sure that’s a frill, but wanted something my wife could just start up easy without a lot of work. It’s a heavy beast, with the wheels and handle it’s very mobile

Outstanding Value!
I just bought this generator, and it's hard to believe the value. Remote start, battery start, manual start, internal recharge on the battery, covered 120 and 240 receptacles, and more. It took about 30 minutes or so to unbox, assemble, start up, and program the remote start fob. Nearly $100 a few weeks ago spent to rent a generator, this will pay for itself in no time flat. As Warren Buffett says, price is what you pay, value is what you get. I feel like I got way more value than what I paid.
