I hope to try out the generators this weekend. Hope the weather holds out a little longer. I would like to put a small load on generators till I get them broke in.

We had a few small thinks so far this year.
The hot water went out at first try replaced the heating element. Good to go.
The divider for the cough/bench top rail popped off from the wall side. I tried to nail it back but, the next outing it popped up again. Where the vinyl cap screws screwed in to the frame had split. The wood was pretty soft, so I replaced that and all is well with that.
Went on an outing over the 4th July about 104 F. ouch I will never do that again. My gems parallel set up stop working so I had to run them one at a time. It worked for a little while. By the end of the 2nd day we was heading home both gens blow up with only 18 hours on them. They manufacture replaced them about 1 month later. the gens are working fine for now

Congrats on your purchase. I highly recommend the Equalizer sway control hitch. Every spring we camp close to home. This way you can go get/buy anything that you forgot to pack. Also, make a check list of things that you need to pack or bring camping with you.

Welcome to the family! I second the recommendation on the Equalizer--excellent piece of engineering that is super easy to use once it's installed and set up. Good luck with it!

I took the gens for a ride on July 4th weekend. It was 104 at the camp site, can you say HOT. What was I thinking? The gens would not work on the parallel no voltage. I ran the tt on one and everything work till I switched to the other one and that one would shut down switch back to the other one and by the end of the day it had seized up. Took them back and got 2 new one and the parallel port works just fine. What a weekend

I'm assuming gens=generators... Why do you have 2 generators? Why not just have 1 big one?
