Powerful, Portable Generators

These e2000 and e3200 etrailer inverter generators combine to provide 4,900 watts of clean AC power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, worksite, or tailgate party. Each generator offers a variety of outlets for powering your devices.


e2000 outlets

The e2000 generator comes with (1) 120V outlet for powering household appliances, tools, and electronic devices. It also features (1) 120V L5-30R twist-lock outlet for large appliances and motorized tools with greater electrical demands. Lastly, it includes (1) 5V USB outlet to charge cell phones, tablets, and other portable electronics. As an added convenience, the e2000 includes a TT-30R adapter that lets you plug your RV into the generator's 120V 30-Amp L5-30R twist-lock outlet. This ensures you'll have access to electricity no matter where you take your RV or if there's a power outage at the campground.


e3200 outlets

The e3200 generator also comes with (2) 120V outlets, (1) 120V TT-30R outlet for a RV connection, and (1) 5V USB outlet. Additionally, it includes (1) 12V 8.3-Amp DC outlet that charges automotive and marine batteries.


generator carry

The compact e2000 weighs only 45 lbs and has a built-in ergonomic handle, making it easy to take with you no matter where you go. The e3200 has a folding handle and wheels for easy transport. Additionally, two built-in, ergonomic carry handles give you a simple way to pick up and move the generator when needed.


Built-in Parallel Ability

parallel

Each generator comes equipped with parallel ability that lets you easily pair them with each other to produce 4,900 watts of power. By increasing the power output, you can run equipment with higher electrical demands.


The included parallel connection cables simply plug into the corresponding ports on each generator's control panel. Because the parallel ability is built-in, you don't have to purchase a separate kit and remember to bring it with you.


Easy-Start Engine

Each generator features a comfort grip recoil pull handle that provides easy manual startup. They use standard unleaded gas, meaning there is no need to mix gas and oil.


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.


Safe for Sensitive Electronic Devices

Electronic devices are made with delicate circuitry that requires steady, controlled electrical current. The electrical current produced by standard generators, however, is uncontrolled, allowing extreme fluctuations in power. And these fluctuations can easily damage your sensitive electronic devices.


These generators, on the other hand, have built-in inverters that control the voltage that is produced. This important feature ensures each generator is safe to use with your electronic equipment such as cell phones, computers and medical devices.


Economy Mode Provides Fuel Efficiency

With the flip of a switch, you can activate each generator's economy mode feature. This mode adjusts engine speed to match the power demands of your connected devices. When using low-draw devices like tablets, cell phones, televisions, and radios, the engine runs more efficiently to save fuel and keeps noise to a minimum. The engine only runs at normal speed when additional power is needed. For example, when using a power tool, the engine will only speed up when the device is actively being used. This mode is not only kinder to your pocketbook and your ears, it's also easier on the environment.


Safety Features

Each generator comes with a number of safety features that protect both you and the generators. The control panel contains two warning lights indicating low oil and overloading. When the engine is low on oil, it 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, a digital 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.

* The starting wattage on air conditioners can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the assistance of built-in capacitors and cold starts. Because of this, we can't list a standard starting wattage as every application can be different.


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 compressor2,0001,000
Refrigerator1,600800
Microwave01,000
Blender850400

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.


2,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 4,200 total starting watts


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


1,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 3,200 total running watts


To run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 4,200 starting watts and 3,200 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 compressor2,0001,000
Refrigerator1,600800
Microwave01,000
Blender850400

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


1,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 3,200 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 compressor2,000 +0 (nothing connected)= 2,000
2. Refrigerator1,600 +1,000 (air compressor)= 2,600
3. Microwave1,000* +1,800 (air compressor + refrigerator)= 2,800
4. Blender850 +2,800 (air compressor + refrigerator + microwave)= 3,650

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


850 + 2,800 = 3,650 highest total starting watts required


In order to run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 3,650 starting watts and 3,200 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.

Video Transcript for etrailer 3200 Watt Portable Inverter Generator Review

Randy: Hey guys it's Randy here at etrailer.com. We get questions all the time about our generators and what size generator that you're going to need to handle your specific application. So we've tested all the generators that we've got here. Today we're going to be talking about the 3,200 starting watt 2,900 running watt etrailer generators. Now these are the invertor type generators. It's going to be much quieter.

We'll talk about that a little bit more in a minute.But basically with the single 3,200 starting watt generator that we've got, it's going to be pretty ideal for your mid sized campers. So in this camper, we've got a 15,000 BTU air conditioner. We've had it running as well as a TV and DVD player. The coffee pot would run fine. Our dual set of crock pots here run on high with no real issue.

The only big thing that we've had, we've got a 1200 watt microwave here. It's been giving us a few issues when trying to run that with the air conditioner, the refrigerator on, TV and DVD on. But we've got a solution for that. There's also a kit available with that 3,200 watt generator plus a 2,000 starting watt generator. That's a slightly smaller generator, more of the suitcase style that you see.Now the two we just talked about that's going to take care of most of your bumper pull style campers.

It's going to take care of most of your medium sized RVs. Once you get into the larger setups though, we're going to be running two air conditioners. We want to run our crock pots the same time we're running our microwaves, same time we're running our hair dryer, same time we're running our coffee pot as well as our AC. Then we'll need to step to the two 3,200's.Now those can be paralleled together or you can get a parallel kit, which includes a 50 amp plug. So we can use our two 30 amp plugs coming from each generator.

They're going to come to a box, which we'll show you in a minute and that'll allow you to use your 50 amp service. So overall it's going to give us a wide variety of applications that we can use these generators to suit your needs.Now the biggest benefit with an invertor type generator, they're going to be the ones that look more encased and more enclosed, is that they give us pure power. We're not reliant on the old generators where the motors would really pulse up and down a lot and increase wattage and decrease and increase and decrease. These give us more of a pure power. So even with sensitive electronics, we've been charging our cell phones off generator power. We charged laptops off generator power. We've got no issues. We're running a 32 inch flat screen and DVD player.There's no worries at all of those being negatively impacted because we don't have that invertor type generator. As an added bonus besides the pure power, that nice clean power, is that they're a lot quieter. So you're not going to be bugging people at the campsite. Or if you're in trying to sleep, you're not going to have to worry about keeping you awake at night.Now to give you a better idea of what each of these kits can handle. With our 3,200 watt, 2,900 running watt generator, we've been able to run our air conditioner with no issues, TV, DVD. And we've been able to chose to either run a coffee or the microwave or a blow dryer. Now if you have needs greater than that or if you want to use those things at the same time. You'll go to the 32 combined with the 2,000. That's going to be that midrange. With that, we've successfully started two 15,000 BTU air conditioners. But that's about it. You're not going to run a whole lot of extra stuff especially nothing that has a heating element. That really draws a lot of power: coffee pots, crock pots, blow dryers, microwaves seem to be the biggest wattage draws that really exist out there as far as your RV appliances are concerned.And then going beyond that, with the two 3,200's you're really not going to have much of a worry. Unless you've got a really long bus and you've got eight TVs going or something like that. It's really going to fit the bill for any of the camping needs out there. These can also be used to operate power tools on job sites. They're not limited to the camping world, but it's what most of our customers are looking. The more camping and the more realistic world aspects of what they're going to be doing when they get out there.Now we've done a lot of testing on a lot of different appliances that we think you're going to use while you're out there camping. And just to give you an idea of what some of the power draws are, let's take for instance a 32 inch flat screen TV. That runs at about 68 watts. The DVD player we've got connected to it, that runs at about 14.A hair dryer on low heat, low blow mode, it's about 160 watts. Then when you get into a hair dryer on the highest setting possible, it's closer to 1,300 watts. For a coffee pot on it's highest setting about 1,066 watts. Then for a fast charge cell phone charger, it's only about 11 watts.We have a microwave in here. It runs at about 1,000 watts. The Norwal 00:04:57 10 cubic foot icebox that we've got in here, that's about 300 watts. For a crock pot on its lowest setting, it's about 126 watts. And once we get it up on its highest setting, it's closer to 374. So this should give you a pretty realistic idea of the different items that you can use at any given time.Now when we look at 15,000 BTU air conditioners, those start a little bit higher. Generally somewhere in the 3,000-4,000 watt range. But the running watts are going to be closer to 1,100 and 1,200.Another common question we get about generators are noise levels. And with these generators whether you're going to pair it with the 2,000, you're going to run it straight or pair it with another 3,200. We do have an eco mode option. Now we don't have that turned on right now. And if you listen in the background, I'll shut up for a minute. You can probably hear the generator but it's pretty faint.What we'll do now is we're going to start with just one running, which is what we have going right now. We're going to go out and stand by it, so you can hear the noise level there. Then we'll be about 10, 20, and 30 feet away from it. Once we're done with that, we'll fire both of them up. It doesn't really increase the volume, but the fullness is definitely a little bit increased. So we'll do the 10, 20, and 30 from there. We'll come back inside here and wind up with both of them running. Just to give you a real good idea of what to expect.Overall though, with the generators running outside even with both of them running. It doesn't make any more noise than maybe a ceiling fan on high or oscillating fan on high. So pretty much if you're used to a little bit of noise as you sleep, I don't think it's going to be any problem for you.Here we are with our single generator running. Now it's in eco mode. That's going to be a little bit quieter and basically it just brings the RPMs down until we need power. Then it's going to ramp it up. So I'm going to switch that off and we'll take that walk we talked about.You can see in its normal operating mode rather it's just a little bit louder. Now here we are at that 10 foot mark. You can see the noise has definitely decreased than when we we're standing right there by them. Here at 20 feet, very normal conversation levels here. It's a very faint noise off in the background. Now here at 30 feet, it's something you can't even really notice or pick up on. This is a normal conversation level for sure.Now we're going to fire both of them up. And something to keep in mind, when you are using a generator, you're going to place those a little bit further away form your coach. You know you'll run your power cord out as far as it'll reach and place them there. That'll give you that good separation. So generally you're going to have them 20 or 30 foot away from your camper anyway.Now this is with both of them running. As you can tell, definitely a little bit fuller volume. But they don't really get any louder. Now here we are again 10 feet away, two generators running. It's about the same as what we had before. But let's go through 20, we'll go through 30 and then we'll head back inside.All right, here we are at 20 feet. This is going to be back at 30 feet. And here we are back inside. Now even with the two running and keep in mind, we have these right at the back of the camper. It's really not going to make any difference in your stay.Now here's what our generator's going to look like. As you can see, they're really nice straightforward easy to use generators. We're going to go over all the buttons and the plugs here in just a minute. You can see we're using these paralleled. So basically we're just bringing our wire out of our parallel kit. Plugging it into our generator and then attaching our ground wire there. So a 5/16 inch wrench or socket, you'll have that taken care of. That gives us our 30 amp twist lock plug, which we're using here. Or if you have that 50 amp service, where you've got the three that go up and down. And then the single ground, it'll plug in the other side there. So it kind of gives you the best of both worlds.Now depending on which one you go with, you're going to have two or three ways to start your generator. Of course, there's an internal battery there. So we can just hit that button into the run mode. Once it's in the run mode, we'll just hold it down til it starts. We've got our choke here. It's an electronic choke, so you push it in. That has your engine choked, allow that to come out once it gets started.Now they also start very easily just by hand. See it doesn't take a whole lot of force. It doesn't take a whole lot of effort to get them to operate. Now as a third option, you have the remote, if you go that route. They'll go with or without the remote, however you want it. But when your switch is in the on position, you'll just hold down the start button from inside your RV. And it'll cause the generator to fire up that way.Then let's say you have the power you need or you got your camper cooled back down. Then just hitting that stop button, it's going to shut it back off. So I like that accessibility. I like that we're able to do that from inside of the camper, rather than walking out, getting it started, pressing the button and then walking back in.Now the eco switch causes or generator to run much quieter than it generally does until the power need exists. So let's start it. It'll ramp up into its running mode. You'll see the green light come on. Then we can just switch it into eco mode. That's going to bring those RPMs down quite a bit. That's going to save us some fuel. So we don't have to worry about it running through all the gas that you've got on hand.Now the three lights that we have here are going to give us the information we need to know what condition our generator's in. The green one on top means that our output is ready. That means we're ready to plug in power up whatever we want. The red one here is going to come on if we overload it. Now we overloaded it a couple times. And basically when that red light comes on, it's going to go into a smooth idol. It's not going to deliver any power. Need to come out and shut it off. Once that red light goes off, just kick it back on and you're ready to go again.Now the yellow light here is going to indicate a low oil situation. It also shuts down the engine. So that's going to help to protect it. We're not going to have to worry about burning through our oil. It running out, then eventually locking up the engine on us.Now here we have a battery powered restore switch. And before initially starting our generator, want to hold that for three seconds. We're also going to have our five volt 2.1 amp USB right here. That's going to be perfect for cell phones, tablets, and things like that. And the cool thing about that is, when it's in eco mode and you're using that USB, it will not raise the RPMs. So we can use this without our generator getting any louder.We got our battery charger port here. Just below it, we're going to have a breaker in case we happen to short out on the DC side or the 12 volt side. Reset it there, the AC side's going to be reset right here. We have the red button down here. That's for our remote programming. If we need to change our remote or if you have the remote start option, that's going to help you program it if you need to if you got a new remote or something like that. And then we've got the 8.3 amp 12 volt DC here as well.I like that most of these have covers on them when not in use. Down here you can see our two standard 110 20 amp outlets. Now something to point out for a lot of the microwaves inside, which you probably aren't going to be running your microwave directly to it. But it does have that additional little side slot to it. Here we've got our straight plug in 30 amp and of course with that parallel kit, we're also picking up the 50 amp.Down here we have the voltage coming out. We have the frequency and we also have the hours. That's going to help us to know when it's time to change the oil in it, stuff like that. And something that I really like and we don't always see it on generators. But we have a fuel shut off here. The reason that's important to me is because most of the time you're not going to drain the gas out of your generator every time you store it for a month or maybe two months.So what we can do is while our generator is running, I will shut this off. And I'll let it completely run out of fuel. That's going to get all the fuel out of your carburetor. It's going to really reduce any of the issues we have with it gumming up in there or causing us issues where we'll have to rebuild it. I think that's a very nice touch. I do it on my boat motor all the time just to help ensure that I don't have any fuel in there that I'll have to deal with next time I want to use it.We've already talked about how our parallel kit's going to hook up to the generators. But here's a good look at it. Plenty of cord length here. You're going to have about six foot of reach side to side. Got our 50 amp plug here and again, that's the three that run straight. One that's going to go in. Our 30 amp side's going to be a twist lock. Just goes in, rotates. And then we have the switches here. So we'll either turn on our 30 amp service or we can turn on our 50 amp service. All in all, this is going to be an excellent way to ensure that your generator's going to work for just about any application.

Broke in my new generator today. Ran like a charm. Its quiet and powers everything in my teardrop trailer including a 5000 btu air conditioner. Should provide solid service for years to come. 716516

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


Well, it's brand new. So far I'm pleased with this generator. It's reasonably quiet. I ran it for about an hour in my backyard and could not hear it at all in the front yard. I could start hearing it about 1/2 way from front to back. It started easily --- second pull. Voltage and HZ seem to be stable. So far, I've only run a few lights for about 45 minutes without issue. Shipping was extremely fast. Once again, I'm really happy with E-Trailer. 706410

Runs everything and my AC in my 17 ft Coachman clipper trailer......at this point I have only tested it out....but after putting oil and gas in it, it started on second pull out of the box...seems to be a well built good running machine and just as quiet as the smaller ones. 662906

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


I took this setup along with me on my first trip with the new Trailer (finally). Prior to leaving, initial setup was easy, they started pretty easy and I ran a shop Vac off each generator just as a test. On the trip, i used them both individually (with 30 Amp plug) and in parallel (with 50 amp plug). Everything seemed to work fine and the units in parallel ran both my A/C units at once without seeming to be pushed to hard. They are not as quiet as a Honda (I had one with my previous Camper) but they are not bad. The "eco" switch (essentially an auto-throttle) helps keep the noise down and seems to work as smoothly as my previous Honda. The individual generators don't seem to be overly heavy and are relatively easy to move around. It also appears they will be pretty easy to service (It appears they will be easier than my Honda was). I will caution that when hooking up the ground wire for the parallel kit to each generator, the nut you must remove to attach the ground wire was tightened pretty hard. When trying to remove it, I actually loosened the stud the nut attaches to. Use 2 wrenches (on to hold the stud and one to loosen the nut) to prevent this from happening. 698146

Received the generators today and within 30 minutes I had both of them unpacked and up and running. They work great and are very quiet compared to other generators I have had. These will be perfect for my RV trailer in the backwoods. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a small quiet generator or a pair of them. Great Value and really quick shipment. 594909

Excellent product. Super easy to start and runs quietly. I’m not sure it’s as quiet as a Honda but, the point is I’m not sure. At $600 bucks cheaper that’s a pretty good deal. Had no issues starting in maintaining my Advent Air ACM 135 rooftop air conditioner. 643787

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


I have right at 5 hours on it as of today. In the AM I'll fire it up for about ten minutes and then change oil to full synthetic. We have yet to hit the road with it however we've been "camping" here at the house to work out any bugs so that when we do travel we won't forget anything. We have a 2019 Jayco 212 QB that has a 13,500 K ac, microwave, plus the other standard RV stuff. The generator powers both the ac and the microwave simultaneously without issue. We were surprised at how quiet the unit is even when it powers up to handle the ac cycling on. Able to sleep without interruption. All in all a great unit at a great price. My neighbor has a Honda which won't handle his AC so I expect he'll be ordering one sooner or later. Almost forgot to mention the 30 amp RV outlet, what a plus that is. 636148

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


One of the two generators in this kit did not have an air filter element in it. Glad I took the air filter cover off and checked before running it. Seems like good quality product. Parallel wires are very small diameter. I will have to check parallel operations to know if that feature works as advertised. Each of the two generators start easy, run quiet, and support 1600 watts with ease. 569803

I received my Generator extremely fast. (3 days from order date). I haven't taken it camping with me yet but I did add the oil it came with and added gas and started it. It started on the 5th pull. I plugged a toaster into it and that worked fine. I will see how the 30 amp part of it works next week with my camper on the trout streams. 654210

So far I like the generators EXCEPT for the noise level! Since I already own a Honda eu3000is to compare the dB level. I honestly am concerned they may be TO loud for campgrounds! I’m waiting for the parallel system to test that with the new generators. 728958

  • I reached out to the manufacturer who said the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 can run electronics like stereos and televisions but is not pure sine wave. I was told a better sine wave for sensitive electronics will come from an inverter generator because what an inverter does is control the voltage that is produced from the generator, making it safe for your devices.

  • What Type of Generator is Required to Powered AC Unit of Trailer
  • The etrailer 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0001 could power a smaller 13.5 btu AC unit if it had a start capacitor like the Advent part # ACM135CH but most AC units require more watts than what this can put out upon start up. The start capacitor of this allows it to draw 1,450 watts on start up and when running whereas the Atwood # AT15025-21 draws 3,795 watts on startup and then 1,265 watts once running as it does not have a capacitor.
