  • Comparing etrailer.com 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator to Honda Generator
  • The etrailer.com 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0003 referenced in your question is an excellent generator that is actually very comparable to the Honda unit that you mentioned. While we don't currently carry Honda products I did look into the EU3000 and found that the etrailer.com unit does have a slightly higher 3,200-Watt starting output (compared to 3,000 for the Honda). Both units are extremely quiet and rate almost identical in that category with a noise level measurement...

  • 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...

If your batteries are larger then you will need the NOCO Genius On-Board Battery Charger - AC to DC - 4-Bank - 40 Amp - 12V # 329-GEN4 to charge batteries up to 230 amp hours. Most truck campers will instead use a DC to DC charger for the camper batteries. If your batteries are under 200 amp hours, I recommend the...

  • Fit of AirBedz XUV Air Mattress 341030 in 2006 Lexus GX 470
  • AirBedz XUV Air Mattress # 341030 will require removing both the second and third row seats in your 2006 Lexus GX 470 in order for the mattress to fit perfectly flat. The mattress is 66-inches long so the only way it would lay flat with the 2nd row seats still installed is if you had 66-inches from the back of the second row seats to the rear hatch. Otherwise with the 2nd row seats only folded down the mattress would indeed be at a different height at each end. This mattress is available...

  • Recommended Vehicle to Trailer Battery Charger for Trailer Battery
  • Without hesitation, I recommend using a 7-way trailer connector and using the 12V charge line you find at the 1 o'clock position to run to a battery charger and then your trailer battery. Most charge lines only take whatever amperage is not being used by the vehicle and sends it to the trailer battery providing a maintenance charge. Your trailer clearance lights will run without issue using either plug and drawing power from your vehicle, so the 7-way will serve you well for that function...

  • Are Redarc Battery Chargers # BCDC1225D and # BCDC1240D Compatible with AGM and Lithium Batteries
  • Yes, both of the BCDC Redarc batteries, part # 331-BCDC1225D and part # 331-BCDC1240D, are compatible with AGM, gel, standard lead acid, calcium, and Lithium ion (LiFePO4) batteries. The wiring configuration will be very similar between the two. You will just need a low voltage disconnect when using the Lithium Ion battery as you can see in the attached photos. To get the proper fuses you will need the 40-Amp MIDI Fuse Kit # 331-FK40 for part # 331-BCDC1225D, or the 60-Amp MIDI Fuse...

Specifically we put this product in the front storage compartment of the RV to be close to the wiring that connects to the vehicle and also the trailer battery because the unit installs between those two components. The In-Vehicle refers to the trailer and not the tow vehicle so you can use the...

  • 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.

This will easily allow you to convert your 4-way wiring and also add your trailer brakes using # 10-1-1. Then you can use the 10 inch # AKEBRK-35-SA for the 4 hole mounting flange or 12 inch # AKEBRK-7-SA brake assemblies for the 5 bolt mounting flange. For your charging your trailer batteries from...

  • Using etrailer.com 3,200-Watt Generator at 9,000+ Foot Elevation
  • For your etrailer.com 3,200-Watt Inverter Generator # 333-0003 we do have the High Altitude Jet # 333-330717003, which is designed to allow efficient generator performance at higher elevations. This is the highest elevation kit available for this particular generator. When using any generator at high altitudes the potential issue comes as a result of the lower air density. This causes reduced engine power because the air mass and air-fuel ratio decreases. The high altitude jet offsets...

  • How to Charge Trailer Batteries with the Vehicle's Alternator and Shore Power

The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger would still be needed while driving but when parked you would need to install a power converter to charge the batteries using shore power.

  • Using Generators to Power RV At High Altitudes
  • When you get to higher elevations (typically right in the range where you recently camped - 6,000 to 8,000 feet above sea level) generators do have a tougher time running efficiently due to a few factors but mainly because the lower oxygen density requires more airflow for the mix of air and fuel. Many generators are indeed compatible with separate "high altitude" kits that allow them to run to the best of their ability in this environment. We don't currently carry Yamaha generators...

  • Will the Faulkner BBQ Grill Work with the Quick Disconnect Port On a Trailer
  • For starters, propane pressure is actually measured in water columns not psi. That said, the Faulkner BBQ Grill part # FR51322 is a low pressure system that is designed to run at around 11" water columns. If you have a quick disconnect port on the side of your RV then this will already be ran though a low pressure propane regulator so it will provide the correct amount of water columns you need. In order to attach the two you can use the MB Sturgis Dual Quick Disconnect Propane Hose part...

  • Recommended Trailer Battery Charging To Allow AC, Refrigerator, and Landing Gear To Function
  • When your trailer battery is properly charged, you should not need your vehicle connected or shore power to un your landing gear. Your trailer battery is most likely not getting the charge it needs. From your 14.28V you are getting from your 7-way connection, that will only provide a small maintenance charge to your battery and won't allow it to get over 80 charged. You would need to use a battery charger when not towing to get it up to full power to run your landing gear, fridge, and...

  • For a 13,500 btu AC unit like the Dometic Brisk Air 2 you'd need a starting wattage of right at 3,000 watts. For that your best option is the etrailer.com 3,200 watt generator inverter part # 333-0003. This can put out up to 3,200 starting watts and 2,900 running watts. The # 289-SUA2300I does not have the wattage you'd need as it can only put out 2,300 starting watts.

  • You're correct that the 12 volt power circuit from your truck will not effectively charge a trailer battery that is being used to power hungry electrical loads such as a fridge, lights, inverter, etc. The best way to charge a trailer battery is by using the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1225D (25A model) or # 331-BCDC1240D (40A model). These products also have an inbuilt MPPT solar regulator and battery isolator function. The solar regulator will allow you to charge the...

  • 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.

  • Adding Generator to Jayco Trailer with Factory Dry Camping Package

With that being said Jayco was pretty vague when I called them to try and get more details so I recommend contacting...

  • How Large of Propane Tank Will Work With etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator - Propane or Gas
  • Though I'm not all that familiar with the phrase "propane pig" my understanding is that it is a larger residential propane tank so you would not be able to use the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator - 3,600 Running Watts - Propane or Gas # 333-0005 with something like that. As you can see from the cut out of the linked instructions, this generator is only compatible with 20 or 30 lb capacity propane cylinders and a residential tank is going to be quite a bit larger.

  • 12 Volt 5th Wheel Trailer Battery Charge While Towing
