I'm thinking of building a bracket underneath camper to mount it. its not very big and then run a line from propane Bottle.
Any suggestions ?


I actually just borrowed the generator for a trip so I left in back of my truck for transporting, but that's what I would do anyway. I'm not sure there would be enough room under to transport one but DO NOT run a generator under your camper. They produce toxic carbon monoxide and I've heard of several tragedies from family who ran it under their camper while sleeping.

FYI - there is nothing as quiet as those Honda inverter generators, hence the price.

That's a good point . I hear a lot mount them on bumper hitch in back but need that area for bikes.
Yeah I looked at Hondas but they're double the cost of this one and I believe this is 50db which is not any louder than dishwasher in home

It says sound is 59db at 23 feet. That means your gonna have to keep it over 23 feet away to sound like a dishwasher...

How easy is it to replace the non fan vent with a fan vent in these trailers?

Not that hard, I did it in our bathroom and it's the best mod if you don't have any fans. Hardest part was getting my hands in the small area between roof and interior ceiling to splice into power. It's somewhere in this thread Customizing my Camper

Does anyone have the EZ Lube axles and if so where are the grease ports (zero fittings)? I have the 2014 model and never been able to find them.

We have them on our 2016. Gently remove the rubber dust cover the end of the wheel hub with a small screwdriver. The grease zerk is behind it.

I've wondered the same thing and started the thread below on the topic. I haven't pursued it as its not worth the cost for me. We stock the fridge day before leaving with trailer plugged in and it keeps everything cold while traveling up to 3 hours for us. Then hookup at site with no issues.

If I'm boondocking I'll just use a cooler in back of truck. But I've heard many people say you can put ice or frozen water bottles in the fridge and it works just like a cooler.

Replace 120v fridge with propane version

I'd hate to go through all that trouble and expense. The first trip we did I had the fridge cooling overnight at our house. This next trip will be about 5 hours as we are going to the beach.

I'd love to find a way to run the fridge on an inverter so that its powered while we are driving.
