RV Electric Generators

RV / Bus / Camper / Electric Generators

RV (recreational vehicle) electric power generators are a special class of generator sets that are designed to be installed into various types and sizes of vehicles available in the RV industry. This could include special conversion buses, "Winabago" type campers, large towable campers, and even some smaller camp trailers. Many of these units are installed inside an enclosure underneath the main RV body, but some may be roof mounted or even rear or front rack mounted. These generators can be powered by gasoline, diesel fuel, or even propane gas depending upon what makes the most sense for the particular installation. One of the unique features of these generators is the extra sound abatement, and muffling that has been built into the product line. In some campgrounds (including State and National Parks) there are now strict noise limits so that RV campers do not disturb their neighbors, and the acceptance of portable electricity may be grudging (at best). So be aware of the local camping protocols before starting up any power equipment!

Small Portable Camp Generators

The small portable camp generator sets are covered here because they sometimes may be purchased in addition to an RV generator, or in the case of a small "pop-up" camper might make more sense than a "real" RV generator. These are really very small lightweight portable generators that are usually built to be very quiet during operation. These units generally can only operate a single small appliance at one time, (i.e., a radio, TV, hairdryer, or a couple of lights.
For more information on these units please see: "Ultralite Generators" or " Quiet Generators" .
