2014 Silverback 37 BH questions


I have a 2014 Silverback 37 BH on order and was wondering if anyone on here know what power rating are on the new resential size microwave as well as the fireplace. I have a Yamaha 2000 watt inverter series generator and was wondering if I will need to upgrade. I know I cant run certain items together but was just curious about these two items as well.

My previous trailer was a Laredo 303TG and the Yamaha had no problem with that unit except for the air conditioner.

thanks in advance.

Well the microwave is prob 1000
Watts and my fireplace has two settings. 750w or 1500w. You may get away with running fireplace on lower setting and the microwave briefly for something.

Most of the microwaves are 1000 W - the starting current of the magnetron may be too much for the generator. No way to know for sure until you know the make and model. We have a 3500 W generator and it bogs when we run the microwave.
