    March 25We have a 30' Keystone Cougar Lite 5th wheeler and want to add a generator. I am looking for suggestions on what brand and size. We've never had one before but are looking to do some boondocking. Any suggestions?

      BLSMSS (Brenda &Marc) March 25 Guess it depends on what your wanting to run and your budget.

        Rox and Jerry March 25 Lights, AC, refrigerator I guess. We are totally new to this. We usually just do weekend trips to campgrounds with electric, but now we are retired and want to travel more.

      Bob and Lana March 25 Starting with the assumption that you have a 2 way propane/electric frig and not a residential one. You need reliable and extra storage beyond what came stock. You need to have better reserves so you don't need to run the generator a lot. You...  more

      Tom999 March 25 Hi guys- I am new to this world also but i have noticed that many of the trailers have a 5500 watt onan generator package. I bought a new 36’ Grand Design Momentum and that’s what it has in it. Best of luck and Happy Trails.😊

      Daniel and Carol Hamer March 25 The generator you buy should be an inverter generator. It is the type safe for electronics as per below “Using an inverter generator is the easiest way to make generator power safe for electronics on a reasonable budget. With conventional generators...  more

      Daniel and Carol Hamer March 25 In addition watch the db rating as some parks have a maximum that is allowable.

      Kevin/Yvonne & 4 Doxies March 25 Do you want portable or installed?🤠😎🙂 If installed (imo) absolute minimum would be 3500. If portable you could get by with 2200 without AC or two 2200 in parallel, then you could run AC and also have a backup in case one goes down. I have heard you can do...  more

      Hoffmans March 25 Champion with remote start. Great feature able to start and stop the generator from inside the RV.

      ewsweeney March 25 An "installed" generator is very pricey  research it well.  Portables are considerably less expensive.  We have a Predator 8750 for our 34' Keystone Laredo.  Only 30 amp, but with a little planning, we can run everything.  If you want a 50 amper, then loo...  more

        Rox and Jerry March 25 Excellent advice. Thank you so much!
    • Rox and Jerry
      Star Dreamer March 25 A lot also depends on how long you plan to boondock between places where you will have electric to plug in at. Usually if you are boondocking for more than a day or too, you try to avoid using your AC to avoid running the generator for long periods. It al...  more

      GPG52 March 26 Here is myv2c. All of the above is sage advice. You do concern me when you say "you want to add" a generator...unless your coach has been specially plumbed to receive an on board generator, I would caution against carbon/monoxide poisoning. B...  more

      WeareMovinforward March 26 We dry camp quite often in the summer (USFS and NPs). If you can get by not using tv, microwave and be frugal with your lights you can get by running a generator for 1hr AM and 1hr PM. Biggest load on the battery is the furnace blower. We make a pot of co...  more
