AFFILIATE LINK DISCLOSURE: Friends, making a quality Loloho video is kind of like making sausage – only slightly more violent. It’s a ridiculous amount of work that typically involves high dollar camera drops, blue-screen-of-death computer crashes, and at least one angry shotgun wielding old man shouting, “Hey! Get the hell outta here!” Once the final video is posted, rewards here on YouTube are few and far between (unless you are a masochist who enjoys being verbally abused by anonymous trolls). One saving grace is our affiliate links. JUST CLICKING THESE LINKS HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR LITTLE SHOW. Think of this clicking as like tipping – except that it doesn’t cost you anything extra! If you eventually make a purchase via one of our affiliate links, we will receive a few pennies (and Sean typically invests these pennies in duct tape and video gear).

    I need help please, I have a Onan 7000 on my RV and when traveling I run the generator and power up both roof A.C. but doesn't cool . But when my RV is powered directly to 30 amps both AC work great. Any idea, would gladly appreciate it, thanks

    Makes sense. I'll remember that. I find that with my A/C on with the generator on the generator dies if I also try to run the convection oven. Any remedy for this?

    This is actually terrible advice, as you need the 12 volt power from the converter to run the fridge and AC boards to cycle them on and off. Sad people are giving wrong advice all around.

    Would you advise to still use your surge protector with a generator, or is the current “ clean” enough and safe enough to run the generator without a surge protector? I’m talking about the newer generators such as the Honda 2000eu

    I'm a newbie and the more videos I watch the more I'm wondering if I should have bought my rig. There seems to be endless senarios of issues that can arise when you are rving. I don't even have it dewinterized yet from buying it recently and I'm wondering how I'm going to learn all that rving entails.

    Another method: Stop using a car battery for your RV 12VDC system. Instead use a 12VDC power supply which you run off of an extension cord (assuming you have a source of 120 VAC). If you generator has enough power, you might also run the 12VDC RV power off of the generator. In other words, I suggest disconnecting your RV inverter. & if you are going to use a generator, have one with enough capacity to run everything.

    Hi, I intend to buy one of those restroom trailers (the small one) and wanted to know which generator or inverter to buy. I was planning on getting a 3500W inverter but the dealer said that will not be enough to power the unit. He recommends 5000W – 8000W. Not sure why so much power for a small portable restroom. Not even RVs use so much. Any advice?

    great info but depends on your set up. some folks have self charging systems with dual quad parrallel battery banks set up on 6000 watt inverter trickle charge so no need to worry about the sun or running out of juice. the self charging system im designing run me 800 bucks so very affordable for those on a budget.

    I understand the concept here but I was able to run two 2200 watt (peak), 1700 watt generators in parallel mode and run my air conditioner WITH my converter on and my fridge in auto mode. Maybe 3000 is the magic number since I had 3400 watts? Just adding some personal real world experience to the equation. Note: I'm also running a small 3 cu ft freezer and watching movies on a 32 inch LCD streamed from my tower computer and a surround sound system. Water heater is only turned on in the morning for my shower an d to wash dishes.
