How long will your refrigerator run off of the inverter before the batteries go dead?

Are you talking about with or without the engine running? I haven't tried it to see how long just on house batteries alone. However, it runs non stop while driving because the motor is charging the house batteries as well.

I was wondering about without the engine running. I was told from our salesman that a Forest River rep quoted him 11 hours.

Hi all,
For the cummins onan generators the answer is an EC30W auto start.

I just put one in.

Look at the Cummins site for the info.

Joining in, just bought a 2014 GT 328TS over the weekend, haven't yet taken it out, but will do this weekend.

Is it okay to turn on generator while you are driving the rig? Have never had a MH before or the luxury of a generator so wondering if it's "safe" to turn on generator while you're actually driving or can you only do it when stopped? Sorry for such a newbie question!!

The generator is made to run while the coach is driving, to run the AC and other appliances.

Yes you can turn on and off while driving the coach. Have fun with your Georgetown.

I agree. We use the auto start to turn the gen set on if we loose power when camping and are away from the rig. We have a Labrador retriever and it keeps the ac going

Do you leave the generator on along with shore power when you are away from your rig for the dogs? Or do you mean your generator automatically kicks on if shore power goes out at the camp site? If it's the latter, can you tell me how you do that?
