Expert Answers about Powerhouse

  • Battery Boxes to Fit Group 34/78 Batteries
  • Group 34/78 batteries have generally have dimensions of 10.3-inches x 6.8-inches x 7.6-inches. You can use these dimensions as a guide to help you choose a battery box since you could have more than one. For a single battery we have the cost-effective Deka Marine-grade box # DW03189. But since there are many box types with different mounting alternatives you can use the linked page to see all options. Some boxes include solar chargers and some include mounting brackets.

  • Troubleshooting Powerhouse Professional Series Generator That Wont Start
  • For your Powerhouse Professional Series # PH69272, I reached out to the manufacturer and they said the carborator can be found behind the inverter and they recommend taking pictures and marking wires so you can put things back properly. It is also important to make sure the pin placement is correct after cleaning your carburetor or the unit will not start. If you want to attempt to clean out your system prior to disassembly, I recommend using SeaFoam or STP in your Gas as you start...

  • How do Powerhouse Generators Compare to Honda and Yamaha Generators
  • Our honest opinion of the Powerhouse generators including the Powerhouse Professional Series part # PH69272 is that they are right up there with the nicest generators out there but are MUCH less expensive. If you are looking for one of the nicest generators out there and don't feel like paying for a Yamaha or Honda yet want the same quality this is your only option. When compared to the Hondas and Yamahas the Powerhouse Generators are only slightly louder and use a little bit more fuel.

  • Generator Recommendation for a Utility Trailer to Power TV, Heater and Interior Lights
  • You are trying to power a heater, TV, and some lights so you are most likely going to need a generator that can put out 2,600 watts if you wanted to use all three at the same time. For a generator that can put out 2,700 watts the part # PH69272 would be a great option. You would need to run a power strip from one of the outlets of the generator to the interior of your trailer so that can power the three things you mentioned. If you wanted to have outlets in your trailer like a house...

The internal battery only allows for electric starting of the generator with the key or remote control, but this battery does not store power for any of the connected devices. This unit can deliver its rated load of...

  • Troubleshooting Powerhouse Generator that Stops Putting Out Power and Idles
  • According to the installation details, it may be tripping the DC circuit breaker and just needs to be reset. There is a running time and load estimation. I've attached a photo but this is also in the attached installation details. I recommend putting a tester on it like # ALL648349 so you know exactly what you are getting when it seems to not put out power.

  • What is Needed to Add Battery to Trailer to Power Lights
  • Basically it's a matter of installing a battery box so that you can securely install a battery and then running the 12 volt acc circuit of your 7-way to the positive post of it and then from there attaching the power wires of the accessories you want to run. There's really not much more to it than that. The part # PH13034 is a very popular battery box we carry that would work well. For 10 gauge wire you then would want the part # 10-1-1.

  • I found that most 8 volt golf cart battery dimensions are 10-3/8 x 7-1/88 x 10-7/8 inches. The only battery box that can accommodate a battery that size would be the Tow-Rax Battery Box # TWSP12B.

  • Recommendation for a Battery Box for Four 6-Volt Batteries
  • For a large battery box for four 6-volt batteries you can use the TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7710R. This box is 58-1/2" long x 7-5/8" wide x 12-3/4" tall so as long as the combined length/height/width of all the batteries are within these specs this is a great option for you. If you can tell me the sizes of the batteries I can determine if we have any other options.

  • Installing Powerhouse # PH13034 Battery Box
  • The two mounting brackets included with the # 78038 battery box would fasten to the mounting surface, using the included screws (or suitable hardware of your choosing) and the straps would be threaded through. The battery box would be placed on top of the straps, which would then be looped around the top of the box then buckled into place. Pretty easy, but I can understand why it wasn't obvious from the description photos.

  • Availability of Strap For Battery Box
  • Powerhouse doesn't offer the strap as a separate item, but the BoatBuckle Gas Tank Tie-Down Strap, part # IMF05352 would work fine for you although it's going to be a bit longer than you need. You'll probably need to trim some of the length. To keep the nylon from unraveling, use a flame to melt the end of the strap. The strap measures 1-1/2 inches wide by 6 feet long.
