Questions & Answers


When the machine is running, the edison outlets are 120v, however the rv plus metering at 60v per side. Is this correct???

Asked by Areiss June 20, 2021

is it made in china?

Asked by toad June 9, 2021

All Westinghouse products are created and manufactured here in the USA in Columbus, Ohio, with a team of industry experts. We assemble our products at our factory in China, where we have stringent quality control standards and functionally test each and every unit.

What kind of gas tank? Is it plastic or metal?

Asked by Randal May 30, 2021

The tank appears to be plastic. Definitely plastic cap and plastic threads on tank.

Where is this manufactured?

Asked by Andrew May 19, 2021


Does it idle down

Asked by Babaloo May 17, 2021


Can it run a refrigerator in the house?

Asked by Rpepp May 8, 2021

Yes, easily.

Does the inverter shut down if it is putting out to much carbon monoxide

Asked by Milt May 7, 2021

No, this generator does not sense CO. Personally I prefer it this way as you should always operate it outdoors and away from people, I’m worried these sensors will fail causing the generator to not operate. If used correctly, CO levels at the generator are not the issue. When using this at my home, I have a CO alarm in my home to monitor where I am, not where the generator is. For me, this is just a possible failure point I don’t need and I much prefer to monitor where the people are and not the generator.

Is this the same unit with the same features as the Onan p4500i?

Asked by Mik April 17, 2021

Yes it has the same features as the Cummins Onan p4500i.

Asked by JR April 14, 2021

What is the height, to the gas cap, with wheels and feet installed?

Great dual fuel feature for our rv
Just bought. Can't wait to use with our rv. Hoping to run all that we need.
Great for RV's
Great for RV camping. Fits under my tonneau cover in my 2019 RAM 1500.
by rivet2021
It is a machine with many advantages to start with, it is portable, it is a light weight machine, it starts by battery and also starts manually, it is a fairly silent generator, it has a digital voltage indicator light
by MLR71

Great Generator
Great product! We’ve used this 4 times camping and would buy again.
by nimel
Will not start but it looks great!
The machine will not start when it is cold. There is an electric choke that does not work on these models. your odds are 50/50 that you get a model that has this problem. I am going to start the process Monday. I will let you know how the customer service process is in future reviews.
