Factory generator?

What generator is used in the Columbus line if installed by the factory?

Suggest you send a PM the 'Christopher Columbus' and he'll answer your question in case he doesn't see it posted here.

We install the gen. Box, junction box, wiring, gas line, and remote start inside front wardrobe. Makes for a fairly simple gen. Install later.

We ordered the factory installed generator on our 295RL. It's an Onan 5.5kw generator. The remote switch is mounted in the W/D closet.
I have to say that it runs like a champ. We used it in 100 heat in Death Valley last weekend and it ran both ACs at the same time without a whimper.
As Chris suggested, you can get the Gen Prep package and install the generator later, we just wanted it done and finished so we didn't have to deal with it.
How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
