Generator?????

Just bought a 2013 246d flagstaff pop up, looking for a recommendation of a good generator for it. 30amp service, does not have an ac unit. Also can I plug the power cord into a regular outdoor outlet if I buy the adapter? Or do I need to run another power line from the panel box? Not new at camping but this I'd the first pop up that we have that accually has a power cord, the other one had the hookup but no cord. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Yes there are adapters, so no problem there. There are so many generator out there now it's hard to keep track. I have a Honda 2000i which is among the best, but there are some new Chinese units that have good specs but may not last as long. Lots of variables.

If you don't have ac you can get away with 20 amp service which most adapters and house plug outlets are. I have champion generator which I bought at tractor supply for $ 300. I run my 35' 5th wheel with 15k AC with no problem for past 2 years. Pretty quite and already has 30 amp rv plug. I did see a black max at SAMs with 30 amp plug and Honda motor for 400. Honda and yamaha are the best and run longer on less gas but are pretty pricey 750+. Could also consider up grading battery capabilities also. Good luck and welcome!

Don't forget to purchase a strong cable or chain. They like to walk away on their own
