High-Output Capacity

firman p08003 generator outlets

The Firman P08003 generator produces 10,000 watts of power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, at the worksite, or faced with an emergency. This powerful generator comes with (2) 120V GFCI protected outlets for safely powering household appliances, tools, and electronic devices. It features (1) 120V L5-30R twist-lock outlet for large appliances and motorized tools with greater electrical demands. Also, it has (1) 120V/240V L14-30R twist-lock outlet that provides a connection point for an inlet box used in home backup power. Lastly, it has (1) 120V 30-Amp TT-30R outlet and (1) 120V/240V 50-Amp 14-50R outlet which both provide RV connection points. These ensure you'll have access to electricity no matter where you take your RV or if there's a power outage at the campground.


Easy Remote Start Engine

e3200R remote control

The generator's engine is designed to start up easily so you can power up faster and without hassle. The key to this easy startup is the electric starter. In conjunction with the remote, turning on your generator becomes remarkably easy and worry-free. Simply turn the fuel valve to "on" and flip the engine switch to the "run" position. Then, push the battery power restore switch for a few seconds and release. At the push of a button on the remote, the generator will fire up and be ready to go.


Before starting your generator, ensure nothing is connected to the outlets. Start your generator and let the engine run for a few minutes to warm up and stabilize. Check to make sure the circuit breaker is in on position before continuing. Once the generator is up and running, you may connect your electrical loads. To follow the recommended order of operation, connect the device with the highest starting watts first, like your air conditioner or refrigerator, and work your way down to the device with the lowest starting watts. By connecting devices in this order, you can make the most of your generator's capacity through connecting high wattage loads when there is more power available.


Safety Features

e4500R data minder

The P08003 generator comes with a number safety features designed to protect both you and the generator itself. The 4-in-1 Data-Minder monitors voltage, frequency, oil, and running hours. Simply press the select button to switch the information on the digital display.


When the generator is low on oil, a light-up indicator in Data-Minder turns on and the engine will automatically shut down to prevent damage. If an overload is detected, either by exceeding the generator's limits or a power surge, the circuit breaker will stop supplying power to the connected devices. A built-in spark arrester helps prevent any sparking that might burn someone or start a fire, protecting both you and the environment. This arrester has been certified by the USDA Forest Service. Also, an automatic voltage regulator assists in minimizing voltage fluctuations which helps to maintain a steady flow of electricity.


Choosing a Generator

To choose a generator that meets your needs, you must match the size of the generator (that is, the starting output and running output in watts) with the electrical demands of the equipment that you want to operate.


Power Demands

Starting (surge) wattage is the power a device requires at startup. Running (rated) wattage is the power needed to keep the device running. A large appliance with an electric motor such as a furnace, refrigerator, air conditioner, or washing machine may require 2 to 3 times more starting wattage than running wattage.


It is always best to start your generator with no load connected, then add each device one at a time. Additionally, a good practice to consider is connecting your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. As you connect and start devices, your available wattage decreases. This order of operation allows you to start devices with the highest power demands when there is more power available.

Determining Your Power Needs

When choosing a generator, knowing the amount of power you will need is crucial to your decision. Whether you are preparing for an emergency situation at home or taking a weekend trip in the RV, planning out your application is essential. The two calculations below provide power estimations that will help point you to a generator that is right for your needs.


Industry Standard Calculation

The Industry Standard Calculation is a quick and easy way to determine your required wattage. It may provide some padding in your wattage requirements, which could give you more power than you actually need, but you shouldn't have to worry about not having enough power. The following steps will help you quickly calculate the correct size generator to meet your application.


As stated earlier, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation requires this approach to work. However, using this calculation removes the worry of connecting devices in a certain order.


1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for the devices that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List all of your starting watts and running watts as seen in Table 1 below.


Table 1

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air conditioner (10,000 Btu)1,8001,200
Refrigerator1,600800
Electric drill600450
Floor fan0100

2. To find the total starting watts required, add the starting watts for the device with the highest value to the running watts of all the other devices from Table 1.


1,800 + 800 + 450 + 100 = 3,150 total starting watts


3. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 1.


1,200 + 800 + 450 + 100 = 2,550 total running watts


To run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 3,150 starting watts and 2,550 running watts.


Advanced Precise Calculation

While the method for calculating your power needs outlined above will work, it isn't the most precise. If you aren't afraid of doing a little more math, you can use the Advanced Precise Calculation to get a more accurate idea of how much power you will need and potentially save yourself some money. Because the calculation above pads in enough power to ensure you can start your devices in any order, it may point you to a bigger and more expensive generator than you need. However, by following the more regimented, order-of-operations calculation below, you'll get a much more precise idea of how much power you need, which could in turn point you to a smaller and less expensive generator.


Again, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation also requires that you start your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. When you connect devices in this order, you can start high demand devices when there is more power available.


1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List out these devices from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts as seen in Table 2 below.


Table 2

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air conditioner (10,000 Btu)1,8001,200
Refrigerator1,600800
Electric drill600450
Floor fan0100

2. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 2.


1,200 + 800 + 450 + 100 = 2,550 total running watts


3. In Table 3, shown below, the values from Table 2 are used to calculate the highest total starting watts required as devices are connected and running. This number represents the highest power requirement you will encounter as you connect all of your devices to the generator. To find this, add the starting watts of each new device you connect to the combined running watts of all connected devices. The highest of these numbers will be the total starting watts required. And again, remember to always connect devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts.


Table 3

DeviceStarting WattsRunning Watts of All Connected DevicesTotal Starting Watts Required
1. Air conditioner1,800 +0 (nothing connected)= 1,800
2. Refrigerator1,600 +1,200 (AC)= 2,800
3. Electric drill600 +2,000 (AC + refrigerator)= 2,600
4. Floor fan100* +2,450 (AC + refrigerator + electric drill)= 2,550

* Even though the floor fan does not have starting watts listed, you have to account for the power needed to actually run it.


1,600 + 1,200 = 2,800 highest total starting watts required


In order to run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 2,800 starting watts and 2,550 running watts. The starting watts are determined by the highest total starting watts required during the calculation in Table 3/Step 3. The running watts are determined by the total running watts from Step 2.

Do you have a question about this Generator?


  • Power Needed for Furrion AC for Van Conversion
  • I definitely appreciate both the fact that you are trying to keep your dog cool and trying to learn, though I should say there isn't going to be an air conditioner that can run indefinitely, and something that runs for long periods of time is going to use up a ton of power. So if you want to use the Furrion Chill Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # FACR14SA-BL - which will also require the Air Distribution Box for Furrion Chill RV Air Conditioner # FACT11MA-PS - powering it for long periods...

  • How Big Of a Generator Is Needed for 50 Amps
  • In order to get 50 amps you will need around a 10,000 wattt generator like the Firman 10,000-Watt Portable Generator part # 333-P08003 which is what I recommend. This generator actually has a 50 amp service port so you would not need any sort of adapter like the Power Grip RV Power Maximizer part # CAM55025 to plug your shore power cord into this.

  • Amperage and Total Harmonic Distortion of Firman 10,000-Watt Portable Generator
  • The Firman Generator part # 333-P08003 that you referenced can put out 10,000 watts of surge power and 8,000 watts of running power. It can be used with either the 30 amp or 50 amp plug. It can run in either 120 or 240 volt which means that with 120 one pole will have 30 or 50 amps but in 240 two of them will put out 30/50 simultaneously. The total harmonic distortion 5 percent or less.

  • Generator Capable of Powering Two AC Units on RV Coach
  • RV AC units like the Atwood part # AT15026-21 that you referenced do require AC power so for a bus that has DC power you would need an inverter like you mentioned. That said, you should note that these AC units are designed typically to be powered by a generator or a power supply found at a campground. There wouldn't be a way to power them with any type of adapter from the power generated by the alternator of the bus if that was what you were considering. To wire up the bus for the power...

  • Is Firman 10,000 Watt Generator 4 Stroke or 2 Stroke Engine
  • We have the Firman Generator part # 333-P08003 that you referenced which can put out 10,000 starting watts and 8,000 running watts but this is a 4 stroke engine. Twin stroke or two stroke engines are typically smaller, weigh less and typically are cost effective but they require mixing oil typically, require more maintenance, can be harder to get and keep running, and burn more fuel. The Firman 4 stroke generator I mentioned is very solid and I would recommend it highly.
