Gotta Love having a Georgetown in the Driveway

We haven't even had a chance to us our rig yet since we got it in December, but it sure came in handy this week. At 10:00 Monday night, I was moving all of the stuff out of the fridge and freezer out to Georgetown because I had a melt down in the house. Everything that was important to keep cold fit. Now I have to transfer things in and out for each meal. The new fridge comes in a week.

Sure glad we have an RV spot in the driveway instead of some storage yard.

They do come in handy especially when we're having a party and need to have additional fridge space so we can prep things ahead of time. Back during the summer we lost power for about 18 hours and it was nice to go out, fire up the generator and use the AC and TV.

We had a snow storm, 26" of snow and no power for 6 days. I had back the MH in the driveway for such and occasion. Ran power from the MH to the house, powered up the gen set and had electricity for our in house refer, lights, tv and satellite as well as house microwave, etc. put 125 hours on the generator but it was worth it. Stayed nice and snug in the house.

We have ecceeded our gen capaity - 2k Kipor, 550 Onan in Mh and 15k Koelher wired to the house and hooked to a 350 gal propane tank. Electric should never be a problem here.

What kind of wiring do you use from gen to house?
