Powerful, Portable Generator

e3200 outlets

The e3200 etrailer inverter generator packs 3,200 watts of clean AC power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, worksite, or tailgate party. This powerful generator comes with (2) 120V outlets for powering household appliances, tools, and electronic devices. It features (1) 120V TT-30R outlet for a RV connection, ensuring you'll have access to electricity no matter where you take your RV or if there's a power outage at the campground. Additionally, the generator has (1) 12V 8.3-amp DC outlet that charges automotive and marine batteries. Lastly, it includes (1) 5V USB outlet to charge cell phones, tablets, and other portable electronics.


e3200 handle and wheels

This unit 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.


Safe for Sensitive Electronic Devices

e3200 cell phone

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.


This generator, on the other hand, has a built-in inverter that controls the voltage that is produced. This important feature ensures the generator is safe to use with your electronic equipment such as cell phones, computers, and medical devices.


Easy-Start Engine

This generator features a comfort grip recoil pull handle that provides easy manual startup. It uses 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.


Built-in Parallel Ability

e3200 parallel ports

The e3200 has built-in parallel capability letting you to pair it with any etrailer inverter generator for increased power output. You can pair directly with a 2,000 watt generator (333-0001 - sold separately) to increase power output to 4,900 watts. An external parallel kit (333-0007 - sold separately) allows for pairing with another 3,200 watt generator (333-0002 or 333-0003 sold separately) to increase power output to 6,000 watts. Additionally, the kit gives you a 120V 50-amp 14-50R outlet. This kit can also be used to pair with a 2,000 watt generator. By increasing the power output, you can run equipment with higher electrical demands.


Economy Mode Provides Fuel Efficiency

e3200 eco mode

With the flip of a switch, you can activate the 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

e3200 safety lights

This generator comes with a number of safety features that protect both you and the generator itself. 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.


Will This Generator Run My RV Air Conditioner?

At etrailer, we perform numerous tests on generators to put them through real-world experience. An extensive part of this testing includes starting and running RV air conditioners. The following table will help you decide if the e3200 inverter generator has enough power to handle this critical function in your RV.

* 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.

by:

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

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

This is generator is absolutely perfect! Very Compact, very quiet and easy to start. Added the oil and fuel and it started right up. I ran it through the 5 hr break in alternating loads up to 50% with a portable heater. Really love the eco mode too. Shipping was amazingly fast. Thanks! 737739



- 333-0002
by:

This was my first generator and I'm extremely happy with my choice. It was delivered faster than expected which was a nice surprise. Ran it for the recommended break in period and then changed the oil. I hooked up our travel trailer with a 15K A/C and it didn't miss a beat. My biggest surprise came with the fuel efficiency. The tank is only 1.8 gallons but I managed to get almost 10 hours out of it. Our friends were camping right next to is with another brand generator and were very upset when theirs ran out of gas early in the morning and he had to get out of bed to refuel. This generator was a little louder than his but I was okay with it especially since mine was lighter and definitely more fuel efficient. The only complaint I have is with changing the oil. The oil basically runs out the bottom of the generator and gets caught in the bottom so the old oil leaked all over the bed of truck during transport. Not sure of a good solution for this yet but hopefully I'll find one. Overall I'm very satisfied with this generator and highly recommended it. 734711

As you stated many of the less expensive generators are not made for the steady current of electronics causing issues like you stated. That won't be the case for our Inverter...

  • Recommended Generator for Portable Restroom Trailer with At Least Two 110v 20-amp Circuits
    I recommend using the 3,200-Watt Portable RV Inverter Generator - 2,900 Running Watts - Gas - Remote Start # 333-0003, which is the remote start version of the # 333-0002 you were looking at and will be much easier to start. Both of these generators provide two 120V 20-amp outlets power household appliances, tools, and electronic devices and they will operate off standard unleaded gasoline. These generators have built in inverters to allow for the charging of sensitive electronics, if needed. If...

  • Recommended Inverter/Generator for AC Unit on 26' Travel Trailer
    Running watts definitely plays a big role in determining the correct inverter/generator, but one other thing you need to look at is starting or surge watts. When you start up your AC unit (and other things) there is an initial surge of power needed to do so unless you have a start capacitor that lowers the starting watts needed. The best generators come from Firman as they have great warranties and options for their generators, but if you're looking for a lowered priced option with...

  • Does etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator Produce Pure Sine Wave for Sensitive Electronics
    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. The etrailer 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 2,900 Running Watts # 333-0002 is a great...

  • What Size Generator Is Needed to Use the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner
    The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner with Ceiling Vent and Start Capacitor part # ACM135BC requires 3,000 watts for starting and 1,000 watts while running therefore a 2,000 watt generator would not be suited for this or any RV air conditioner for that matter. Instead, I recommend the etrailer Portable Inverter Generators part # 333-0002 which has a 3,200 watt starting and 2,900 watt running power output. This will give you enough power to start and run the air conditioner as well as power...

  • Effect on Engine & Transmission Temperature from Using Front Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier
    Using a front hitch like Curt # C31078 along with a hitch carrier like # C18153 is a great way to add cargo capacity when your truck bed and rear hitch are already spoken for. The cargo items you describe wanting to load in a front-hitch-mounted cargo carrier - a tool box, generator and gas cans - all could present a lot of flat surface area that could block air flow. Some generators like # 333-0005 have an open-frame design while others such as # 333-0002 have enclosures that would...

  • Can etrailer Inverter Generators Run Parallel
    You can run a single etrailer 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0001 parallel to your Firman WO2981 inverter generator, which is similar to the etrailer 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0002 but not to the dual etrailer Inverter Generators # 333-0001-2.

  • Is 2,000 Watt Generator Enough to Power 5th Wheel Trailer Appliances
    Is your generator 2,000 running watts or 2,000 starting watts? Either way, that's a pretty low amount and I would think that you would need more. I have added a couple cut outs from the linked help article on generators which shows some of the common appliance power usage as well as how to determine exactly how much power your generator will need to be. Should you need more power, as I suspect you likely will, there are a couple of good options that don't have to break the bank, depending...

  • What Are the Starting Watts/Amps of the Furrion Chill Replacement RV Air Conditioner
    The running power requirement for the Furrion Chill Replacement RV Air Conditioner part # FACR15SA-BL is 1,720 watts or 15.4 amps and the starting power requirement is 4,800 watts or 40 amps. That said, the Furrion Chill Replacement RV Air Conditioner has a built-in compression system that would prevent the high starting amps/watts from tripping the breaker therefore the power supply only needs to be rated for the running watts/amps according to Furrion. For this, we have the etrailer 3,200-Watt...

  • Will etrailer Generator Fit Under Tonneau Cover on a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    The answer to your question is yes, you can install a BAK Revolver X4 tonneau cover on your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 and etrailer inverter generators will absolutely fit underneath. First, in regards to fit, the correct BAK Revolver X4 for your 2020 Silverado 1500 is going to depend on your bed size: - 5-3/4 Foot Bed: BAK Revolver X4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK79130 - 6-1/2 Foot Bed: BAK Revolver X4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK79131 - 8 Foot Bed: BAK Revolver X4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK79132 A...

  • What Power Source Typically Powers a Furrion Chill RV Air Conditioner
    The Furrion Chill Premium RV Air Conditioner System # F14PA12SASA-W that you referenced uses AC power like what a home uses and not 12 volt DC power like what a battery provides. This typically gets powered by a generator like the part # 333-0002. Even if you converted a battery to AC power it would not have the amount of wattage needed to run this unit. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

    The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135 Will run on a small generator like the 2,000-Watt Portable RV Inverter Generator part # 333-0001 with the Start Capacitor for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners part # ACMSCKIT installed.

  • How Large of a Battery is Needed to Keep Power Tools Running?
    In regards to a battery of choice, there is not one style in particular; the 12V with the largest amp hours that fits where you are mounting it is your best option. I took a look at the D3100 you referenced and the specs said it gave 110 amp hours, which is pretty hefty. The only other thing you can do, if a battery with a lot of amp hours isn't getting the job done, is use a portable generator such as # 333-0002.

  • Compatibility of Solar Panel System for Off-Grid Living
    You can live and run your AC even off a solar power system if you have a large enough battery backup system, but I also recommend having a generator on hand.

The battery bank you need will be dependent on your power needs. AC does have a significant startup and draw on power, so I definitely recommend having a capacitor on your AC to assist...
