A worthwhile investment in any case. Was parked next to a MH at the boondocking area of Sigsbee Key (Key West) and he was without one. His generator's exhaust was getting into our camper when we opened the windows.

When we moved later on and was next to a MH with the roof extension it was MUCH appreciated.

Hello. There is power to every site. As far as generators speaking for myself only not representing FROG policies or 4H rules for medical reasons one could be used in the event of a power failure.

Since my wife is on nightly dialysis we will be bringing our Honda 2000 Companion; just in case. We have a "power out" alarm that will wake us if the power goes out since the cycler's on board battery will only hold the "status" of the dialysis for about an hour.

Thanks for the feed back. With my power monitoring system, I have had summer high demand situations where the campgrounds system could not supply >108 volts resulting in having no choice but to run the gen for power. Looking to be prepared as I mentioned this is my first big rally of this type. Seems like that has not been an issue at this rally in the past so no worries. Again thank you for your insight.

Hey Nutmeg, if you're having problems like that, you should look into a hughes autoformer.
