Generator in Sabre 32BHOK or similar

We have a 32BHOK and are interested in possibly adding a genset. Has anyone done this and if so did you put it in the front or where? Maybe someone had one done at the factory? Any info would be appreciated.

Greg

I have a 32bhok and theres not enough room in the front I dont belive. unless you have the big slam latch doors . even then it would have to be small !
I just haul mine in the truck and take it out when we get there .
I slide it under the dinning slide out and it works good .

what size generator do you use? I didnt figure there was enough room for it in the front either, but wondered if there were any factory installed out there to see how they did it.

make sure where ever you put your Gen, you lock it down. Had a Honda3000 sitting between the hitch and cab, Locked down with some high end Bicycle locks,I owned a bicycle shop, They still got it, Now am looking for new gen ... JD

There are a number of options you can do for a generator:

If you want a boondocking setup, you can get a rear hitch receiver attached to the frame (do NOT use the rear bumper), a cargo rack, and a security chain, and put a generator there. A lot of people have had great luck with two Honda eu2000i twins with a parallel cable and an extended run tank. You can also use a larger generator like a Yamaha 3000seb or a 4000-6000 watt model that can saturate a 30A link. However, the larger models are heavier. Other people have had complete, lockable enclosures fabricated so that the generator is properly vented and cooled, but out of sight.

Another alternative makes life easy, but it requires a lot of RV service. Estimated cost would be $7500.00 or so, and it would have to be done by experienced professionals. This would be having someone fabricate an enclosure for an Onan MicroQuiet generator so it sits underneath the RV. Then it gets wired in via a transfer switch (so that plugging into shore power disconnects the generator electrically), and connected to the propane lines. The advantage of this setup is that once in place, you can start/stop the generator just by flipping a switch in the coach.
