High-Output Capacity

outlets

The e4500 Dual Fuel etrailer generator produces 4,500 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. Lastly, it has (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.


Easy Electric Start Engine

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. With this starter, 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 control panel, 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.


Dual Fuel Capability

dual fuel selector

For flexibility and convenience during road trips or in an emergency, this generator can use gasoline or propane to power the engine. In addition, using propane as an alternative to gasoline is a cleaner option for the environment. However, while using propane the power output slightly decreases compared to gasoline.


  • Starting (surge) power output:
    • Gas: 4,500 watts
    • Propane: 4,050 watts
  • Running (rated) power output:
    • Gas: 3,600 watts
    • Propane: 3,250 watts

dual fuel propane connection

This generator includes a 5' LPG hose with regulator for connecting to a propane tank. Once you have connected your generator, turn the fuel selector switch to the LPG position. After that, you can start the generator with the push button electric start or pull start.


Safety Features

The e4500 Dual Fuel generator comes with a number safety features designed to protect both you and the generator itself. The 3-in-1 Data-Minder monitors voltage, frequency, 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 flashes 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.

Video Transcript for etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the etrailer 4500 watt portable generator, part number 333-0005.When choosing a generator, you'll want one that meets your electrical demands. Some things to consider are your starting watts and your running watts. Starting watts is power that your device or appliance needs when first turning it on, and running watts is power required to keep that device on.Some larger appliances, like your air conditioner, refrigerator, and washer and dryers require up to 2 to 3 times more starting watts than running watts to turn one. This means that the wattage will spike when powering your device on, and then drop to a lower wattage while running. One example would be when you're home and you turn on the vacuum cleaner, and the lights dim. Another way to think about it is water pressure.

When you're in the shower, and somebody turns on the sink or flushes the toilet, the water pressure drops.Another thing to consider is how many different devices or appliances you'll be running simultaneously. For example, your air conditioner, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, TV, radio, and all of your lights. It all adds up. You'll wanna be sure your generator can handle the combined wattage.This etrailer generator is gonna be great for the campsite, the job site, and emergency situations. It's gonna be ideal to use it with your RV, camper, power tools, or any other electrical tools or appliances.

While it does run on regular gasoline like most generators, one of its best features is its compatibility with propane, so it's a duel fuel system.Being able to run on propane can be highly beneficial. For one, it has a longer shelf life than gasoline, which degrades over time. It won't be contaminated, or full of carbon deposits, if not regularly used. So, for example, if you're someone who doesn't camp as frequently, you don't have to worry about the propane going bad.Another thing to consider is when a catastrophe strikes. Things like electrical outages, ice storms, and hurricanes.

Propane is easier to get a hold of, and it's available when gas pumps aren't.One thing to keep in mind, when running your generator on propane, it may not be as efficient in sub zero temperatures.Lastly, propane is environmental friendly. It's clean burning, and produces a low amount of carbon monoxide compared to other fuels.While you may like one fuel source more than the other, the nice thing is you get both options if the other is not available.When using your generator, and choosing your fuel source, one thing to keep in mind is that the on-board gas tank holds five gallons, whereas if you we're to use the propane, you determine the tank size.It's a 5 horsepower, four-stroke engine, that features an electric start, and a manual pull start. On board it features two 120 volt 20 amp common household outlets, 120 volt 30 amp RV outlet, and 120 volt 30 amp twist lock outlet. All outlets are fuse protected, and the reset switches are located here and here. It also has a three in one data monitor.

It's gonna show us our volts, our frequency, and our hours of use.Here we have the selector switch for our gasoline and propane. It's easy to operate, and it's easy to read.Here we have the LPG inlet for our propane, and the regulator and hose is included.Surrounding the engine and fuel-tank is a steal tubular frame. This is gonna give it strength and durability. Integrated within the engine and frame are four rubber isolators. This is gonna cut down on vibration and noise when the engine is running.It includes rubber coated wheels, and a handle with a pad for easy toting.The rubber feet on the bottom of the frame are gonna help stabilize our generator when parked. This too is also gonna help cut down on vibration.The exhaust features spark arrester. This is gonna prevent any flammable debris from exiting the generator.Now that we've got all the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to set it up. I've already gone ahead and removed it from the box, as you can see, the next step is to remove the shipping brackets underneath the generator, and this has to be done before you add any gasoline or oil. So what we can do is grab the handle, and we're gonna turn it up and rest it on its side.So here on the underside of the generator, the shipping brackets are red. It does include the wrenches to remove these. There's a nut on the back side, we'll just line it up, get them loose, and take them off.Now you can discard those brackets, we will not be needing them, and we're ready to turn the generator back over.Our next step is to connect our battery, we can push the wire through our cover, remove the hardware, and now our battery, we can remove that protective cover. We'll just line it up, put our hardware back in place. Once you've got it nice and secure, take our cover, and put it over the top.Next let's fill the oil. The oil filler cap is located over here, to the left of the battery. Let's take that out. I'd like to point out that it also doubles as a dipstick. We can take our included funnel, push that in, and pour in our included oil.Once it's filled up we can just use a little cloth, clean up any oil that we may have spilled, and put our cap back on.Now if you're using gasoline, now is the time to fill it up. It takes five gallons of regular, unleaded gasoline. We'll take off our cap, and begin fueling up. Once we're full, we can put our cap back on.Once you've got it all fueled up, you're ready to go. If you'll be using propane, you'll need a propane tank, and you'll also need to connect your hose and regulator. The hose connects right here on your generator. You'll need to provide your own wrench to tighten it down.The regulator connects to your tank, and we can just tighten that down by the large knob with our hand.Once you figure out which source you're going to use, you'll just need to select it. Since we'll be operating propane first, we'll turn it to propane, and we'll wanna make sure our tank is also open.From there, the rest of the start up procedure is the same, whether you're using gasoline or propane.For starting, you'll wanna set your choke to the starting position. Then we can just hold down our start button until the engine gets started. After that, we'll wanna turn our choke to the run position.If it seems like it wants to start, you can just go ahead and change the choke to the run position, and then try again. It should start right up.Once the light turns green, we're ready to plug in.With my generator running, I can operate my slide out, my lights, my microwave, and most importantly, my air conditioning. Here I am inside my camper, my generator is right outside, and I'm averaging about 66 decibels.Here outside next to the generator, I'm averaging about 88 decibels.To kill the engine, you can turn it to the off position. Now let's try it with gasoline. So then we'll just repeat our steps.With it running on gasoline, our decibels go up to 89.To perform some regular maintenance, I'd like to point out that your air filter is located on this side, next to your pull cord. To remove it, you'll need to take off the cover first. There is a clip on both the top and bottom. Take those off, then you have access to the actual filter. Once you've cleaned it, you can just reverse your step.The spark plug is located on the back side of the generator. You can simply remove the spark plug wire, and the tool is included to remove it and install it. You get a socket, and a rod. When you're done reinstalling your spark plug, you can then just reconnect your wire.And that's gonna complete our look at the etrailer 4500 watt portable generator, part number 333-0005.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Generators

Do you have a question about this Generator?


  • 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...

  • Air Conditioner To Use With 2200 Starting Watt Generator
  • I contacted Advent and the ACM150C needs at least a 3,000 starting watt generator to run the 15,000 BTU model. Your existing generator will not have enough starting watts to run the air conditioner unit. It is also no longer available through us. If you already have the air conditioner and need a generator I recommend etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 with electric start that is rated for 3,600 Running Watts and 4,500 watts which is plenty enough to power the ACM150C...

  • Can etrailer.com Generator # 333-0005 Be Used in Higher Elevations
  • The etrailer.com generator part # 333-0005 can be used in higher elevations with the high altitude jet kit part # 333-335717005 which will allow the engine to run correctly between the elevations of 6,000 and 8,000 feet above sea level. Since you will be at an elevation of 7,000 to 8,000 feet this would work really well for you. And allows the generator to run on propane and gas at that elevation.

  • 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...

  • Hard Start Capacitor for Advent Air RV Air Conditioner for Using Generator
  • The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner w/Vent, Start Capacitor, and Heat Strip, White # ACM150CH includes the start capacitor # ACMSCKIT. The air conditioner has a running amperage of 15 amps and a starting amperage of 45 amps. Many camping sites don't offer that power or do generators. When using this start capacitor the draw at start is 15 amps and then the running amps remain at 15 as well. As the air conditioner runs the start capacitor slowly stores additional energy to restore the charge...

  • What is the Decibel Level of etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator
  • The etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 has been measured at 67 decibels 25 feet away at 1/4 load, which is just a bit louder than the amount of noise made during a conversation. All generators are going to make some type of noise though this is a pretty quiet one relative to its wattage. I have added links to a couple video reviews of this generator for you to take a look at.

  • Can a Dual Fuel Generator be Used for a 5th Wheel Camper in Place of a Deep Cycle Battery
  • You don't necessarily have to have a battery on your trailer if you are using a dual fuel generator like the etrailer # 333-0005. You just need to be sure that the draw of all of your electrical products does not exceed the output of your generator and that you have enough fuel to last your camping trip. For example, the generator mentioned above has a surge power output of 4,500 watts when using gas and 4,100 watts when using propane. The running power output is 3,600 watts gas and...

  • Generator Recommendation for Camper with 15,000 BTU AC Unit
  • A 15k btu AC unit is going to pull up to 3,500 watts when starting up and then 1,800 watts when running. If this is all you'd basically be running then the etrailer.com generator part # 333-0005 would work well. You'd need to bypass your 1,000 watt inverter though since your AC pulls more than that. If you plan to run several accessories in your RV you'd need to step up to the etrailer 6,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0003-2-0007 which can support 6,000 watts starting and...

  • Is the 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator Available with Duel Fuel
  • The duel fuel feature is typically only available on larger generators like the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator part # 333-0005 which is rated at 4,500 watts. We do not offer the etrailer 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator part # 333-0003 with the duel fuel feature. If you needed the dual fuel feature then you would have to upgrade to the 4,500 watt unit.

  • What is Difference Between Firman and etrailer.com Brand Generators
  • The etrailer.com and Firman brand generators are essentially the exact same thing just branded differently. The advantage to the etrailer brand is the price is going to be a bit lower. The advantage to the Firman brand is a life time warranty on parts when used in non-commercial applications. The etrailer warranty is 2 years on parts for non-commercial applications. 2-Year limited warranty for residential use 1st Year parts and labor 2nd Year parts only 180-Day limited warranty...

  • Operating Time on Full Tank of Gas for etrailer.com 4,500-Watt Portable Generator 333-0005
  • The 7-horsepower engine in the etrailer.com 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 will operate for approximately 14 hours at half its rated 3600-watt load capacity on a full 5-gallon tank of gas. This works out to about 2.8 hours per gallon of gas. If the output load on the generator is more than half the rated output (more than 1800-watts) then the run time per gallon will be reduced.

  • Availability of Dual-Fuel Generator with Remote Start
  • The etrailer.com 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 that you referenced does have dual-fuel capability and an electric-start engine that allows for simple push button startup, however it does not have a remote start option. We do not currently have a dual-fuel generator available that has a remote start option. The etrailer.com # 333-0005 is a really nice generator with a 4,500 watt starting power output (4,100 watts with propane) and a 3,600 watt running output (3,300 watts with...

  • How Much Does the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator Weigh
  • The etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 has a shipping weight of 135 lbs so without the packaging you are looking at right around 130 lbs. Compared to our other dual fuel (propane and gas) generators this is the lightest one. It does feature the wheels to help make transport a little easier as well.

  • Is there a Conversion Kit for Generator Compatibility with Propane Use
  • The A-iPower 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 1,600 Running Watts - Gas - Manual Start # 289-SUA2000I is not compatible with propane use. Unfortunately there is not an kit we carry to convert to propane use. We do have generators that use propane and the smallest is the Buffalo Tools 4,000-Watt Generator - 3,250 Running Watts - Propane - Manual Start # BTGEN4000LPC. If you want a generator that can use either gas or propane I recommend the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator...

  • Will the etrailer Portable Generator Run on Natural Gas
  • The etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator part # 333-0005 cannot run on natural gas nor am I aware of an adapter that would allow you to do so. This will be the case for all of the etrailer Portable Generators. The 4,500 watt generator must be used with either gas or propane.

  • Power Requirements for Air Conditioner Installation in 7 x 12 Enclosed Trailer
  • We do offer rooftop air conditioner units for trailers that will both help control the interior temperature inside your 7 x 12-foot enclosed trailer and help control the amount of humidity to protect your musical instruments. The most important thing to consider up front is how much power the unit will need to operate. All air conditioners use a lot of power. Even our smallest 13,500-BTU model # AT15032-22 will need a 115-volt AC-power circuit capable of delivering 11-amps. At startup...

  • What Is the Run Time of the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator On Propane
  • The run time of the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator part # 333-0005 while on propane will be largely dependent on the amount of power being used. If you were at about 50% power consumption for example then the 10 gallon propane tank which holds about 2-1/2 gallons would last around 2-3 hours. If you let me know what your power requirements are I can give a better figure to go off of.

  • Does etrailer.com Generator # 333-0005 Have Enough Wattage for RV AC Unit
  • Yes, the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # ACM150CH will work well for you as it has 30 amp outlets on it and was designed for applications like yours. This has twice the wattage of most AC unit requirements too as it has the following outputs: Starting (surge) power output: Gas: 4,500 watts Propane: 4,050 watts Running (rated) power output: Gas: 3,600 watts Propane: 3,250 watts Based on that this would easily handle your AC system and not trip breakers like the...

  • AC Unit Recommendation for 5 by 8 Trailer and Generator Size Needed
  • For a 5 by 8 trailer you'd need an AC unit that comes with an interior vent panel and a lower BTU since it's a smaller trailer which wouldn't have as much cubic feet to cool. For that the best option is the Atwood Air Command part # AT15025-21 which is a 13,500 btu unit for non-ducted applications like yours. A ducted application would be an application that has roof ducting designed for AC units that directs the air through vents. A non-ducted application would be one like yours where...

  • Can 2,000 watt etrailer.com Generator Run Refrigerator
  • The etrailer 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0001 has a starting (surge) power output of 2,000 watts and then a running (rated) power output of 1,600 watts.
