We have ran ours all night without an issue. Now that I've installed 520 watts of Solar and 435ah battery bank and TSW inverter we haven't had to use Genny anymore just yet.. While your camped at Walley World go inside and buy a CO detector and sit it anywhere in your RV you want for protection from carbon monoxide. They hold 1or 2 AA batteries.

im not a fan of wally world, if your spending $50,000 plus on a rv spend the night in a campground, its also a lot safer.

Hi mud_yapster,

Most of these folks were running the generator overnight in order to run the air conditioner. Even with a 435ah battery bank, I don't think that would be possible - air conditioners pull a lot of current. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Regards, Mark...

Generator

Running a generator is not allowed past 11 at a nascar race I can't imagine doing it at a campground they all have quiet times Walmart is closer to a truck stop environment anything allowed as long as it is a quiet generator

No your right you can't run the A/C off my battery bank it wouldn't last long at all. I was only stating we have ran our gen. all night before without an issue. If we don't need A/C though we don't need our generator now with our solar set up.

Ain't that what you call "blue noise". Or something like that.

For extra protection, you could install a Kidde battery operated CO detector. They have a 10 year battery life so you'll probably never have to fool with it. They are available with or without digital CO level indicators.

$45 for the digital readout one at Home Depot.

When we went freedom camping(Boondocking) here in New Zealand we ran our onboard Gen lots of times for the Aircon to work, never had the CO alarm go off but this was during the day when very hot,

Glad to hear that I could run it if needed. I believe I would add an extra CO detector though.
