Generator=today's project

First find 10w/30 oil.
Next find gasoline with NO ethanol.
Then fill her up and give it a yank

Then the error message from the Progressive Industries surge protector.
Then research.
Learn about open grounds.

I think with our style of keeping on the move the Projecta via the alternator and/or the Solar panel will keep us topped off....but for those hopefully rare times when we are parked 4-5 days and NO Sun then I'll fire up the little Earthquake. Reports from owners are that it is clean enough to run a laptop by, Samlex is pretty particular about the power it receives, so it is an option and the Earthquake fired up quickly and for a genset isn't too loud.

Haha! Yes they do stink and even a quiet one isn't quiet!
But this one looks to be super frugal and I can lift it with one hand
