  1. Good evening, I purchased my first camper trailer (2021 coachmen clipper 12.0 TD XL Off-road) and will primarily be using it for boondocking. While I’ll be using solar for the most part to power small things such as lights or the stereo I know that once it gets hot I’ll need to use my AC. The camper has a 5,000 btu AC unit in it and my mind is spinning trying to figure out what size of inverter generator I should be looking into. Honda and Yamaha are running to the front but I have no idea how big I really need to go. Any advise? Thank you all!! Edited for spelling errors

Also has a retro-look dinette “booth” with a rotating table and front window with a remote-controlled power window blind. The dinette can accommodate smaller folks as an additional sleeping area. RV has two air conditioners (30,000 BTU total), with one also being a heat-pump. The LP furnace is 35,000 BTU, and the 12 gallon water heater can run on electricity, LP, or both. Three roof-vent fans with wall-mounted controls. Living room has large-screen LCD television with theater sound-bar and sub-woofer, theater-seating recliners (with power-recline and lighted cupholders), electric fireplace/heater, couch-sleeper, ceiling fan with light, and custom office (see photos for office).

This RV has the Auto-Level feature, with six hydraulic leveler jacks. Disconnect from your truck, press a button, and it levels itself. It has large capacity water tanks -- 66 gallons fresh water, 78 gallons gray (two tanks), 39 gallons black, with all tanks having heaters for Winter use. The underbelly is fully enclosed and the underside storage is heated for Winter use. The RV is rated for use down to 0 degrees F. Two 30-lb LP tanks, but could accommodate 40 lb size.

It also includes an integrated backup camera with a wireless display in the cab of your truck, and an EEZTire TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) that can monitor up to 26 tires from the driver’s seat (includes 11 tire sensors for the RV and truck). The tires have been upgraded to Sailun all-steel radial S637 G 14-ply commercial-grade tires. Brakes and bearings have been professionally serviced every six months since new. We recently had some road damage that required LCI (original frame manufacturer) to conduct some frame repairs. LCI reported that the frame is now stronger and better than new, and they have provided a one-year manufacturer’s transferable warranty on the frame and suspension. Oh by the way, nobody has ever smoked in this RV, but we have two small dogs. Not to worry, my Spouse worked as a Veterinary Nurse for years and knows very well how to keep the RV clean with dogs aboard. Also, the Champagne-colored 2017 F350 Super Duty, Diesel, Crew-Cab, Long-bed, 4X4, Dually truck in some of the photos will be for sale as well, once we sell the RV. Contact me if if you want to talk about a package deal. The truck has a Ram-Mount Tele-Pole system that holds the TPMS, back-up camera display, an iPad for GPS, an iPhone, and a "Giraffe G4" obstacle height sensor, all for easy driver viewing. (I'm also a pilot, so I like the "cockpit" view from the driver's seat.) Contact me for any questions.
  4. We are making big changes this year and are slowing down our adventures as we become seasonal campers down in Silver City NM! We'll still travel some, mostly in the winter happily! Our trustworthy Volvo "Gar" is now going up for sale . We just placed our ad in the "RV's, Tows, and Toads for Sale " section of the Escapees forum. 2001 Volvo VNL 64T660 singled long and setup for several deck bed toys with a lifting bed. Please see our ad for more information. THANK YOU ALL! - Steve
  5. Hello, I hope this is in correct place to ask this. I have a very small travel trailer, cheap little Sportsman, and it has a 8,000 BTU air conditioner. What size generator do I need to run this little 14 ft trailer in the woods and forests? Do you know of the quietest one and do you know is there specifications on safety concerns in Nat'l parks etc? The generator will probably stay in the bed of truck [I think] Thank you for your time and any info. Snort
  6. I have a 2002 Winnebago Adventurer I purchase new which has a 5.5KW Onan Generator (original). It sat in storage for 18 months unused. The generator started fine when I got it out of storage and will run as long as the RV engine is running and I'm driving. If I stop, say at a rest area, shut the engine off and leave the generator running, it will stall anywhere from 5-15 minutes later. I can usually restart it but it will stall more quickly, 1-5 minutes. As soon as I start up the RV engine and get back on the road, I can start the generator and it will run until I stop again 2-3 hours later. Within 5-15 minutes it will stall. I've repeated this scenario enough times to know it is definitely related to when the RV is not running at high rpm. I have tried leaving the engine idling but that doesn't seem to be enough, I actually have to be driving (higher rpm) for the generator to not stall. I am thinking this is maybe a fuel system pressure problem? Maybe a new gas cap? I can't think of anything else and so I'm seeking help on this forum. When it is running, it runs fine, no missing or sputtering. It will sometimes sputter just as it is stalling but that is all.
  7. I've been looking for a Toyota Sunrader, and notice almost none of them have generators. Is one very important? How much should I allow for the cost of one in an RV I'm looking at? Is it easier to buy one and add it to an RV, or is a portable one a better idea? Any recommendations on a good portable? I just want to be able to run the AC or the microwave(for popcorn, of course). Sorry for all the questions, thanks!
  8. Hi everyone, I am new to the community. I’m going to be moving into my small RV in the next few months. The refrigerator is not working and it will cost to much to be replaced. I am trying to keep the spending down as much as possible. What are your thoughts on putting in a small garage/patio type unit like cubic 3 ft. A/C freezer refrigerator in its place? They vary in electric usage from $26 to $13 a year and from 197 kWh so 138 k a year. And I will be Boondocking probably 90% of the time for 6 months of the year and on my property with electricity the other six months. I have only one large marine battery, but I do have a generator. Another concern is will it hold up to the shaking and jarring that the RV will have driving on unpaved roads Boondocking?
  9. I am looking into buying a Generator for my RV when Boondocking and keeping it on my acreage. Any advice? I have my eye on a Champion 3400 Duel Fuel Gas/Propane Generator based on my research. It needs to be able to power a 13,500 BTU AC unit. Thanks.
  10. I have had several RV's, all came with a generator, 4000w. Now I have a 5th wheel with NO generator. What do I look for in a portable? I have a 13,500 AC. How many decibels is reasonable? Is an inverted as good as a generator? I know folks talk about Hondas, but how about the ones we can by from Harbor Frieight, $300.00 verses $2,000 just an ol farm boy.
  11. I'm getting hit and miss information on the Champion 3,400-Watt Dual Fuel generator. I need something for summer overnight boondocking to run a 15k BTU air conditioner in the 5th wheel. Propane is a cool option, but no problem burning gas for the extra wattage. Anyone used this generator/inverter?
  12. On my last trip, while running AC on generator, it blew a bearing. What a noise. A local mechanic removed, fixed and replaced the generator. It runs great when started from the generator itself. But when I started it from inside the camper, it ran very rough and did not beep to let me know it was ready to turn on the AC. No other electric items come on either. He has not been able to find the problem yet. Gasoline is good, Converter appears good. Any ideas?
  13. Installed complete solar system in my 2015 RV & no longer need its OEM gasoline powered Cummins Onan RV QG 4000 (4KW) generator. $1,500.00 OBO. Only 90 hours total time. Not really broken in yet. Said to run a 13.5K BTU AC but ran my 15.0K unit just fine. Can't show pix of unit or manufacturer's label due to forum post space limitations. See http://tinyurl.com/ydb54m62 to confirm $2,800.00 price new & see a picture, detailed specs & manuals (owner's, service & installation). -- Model 4.0KYFA-26100; weighs 172 lbs; measures 30.0" L x 19.7" W x 14.4" H. -- Sound is 68dB at 10' on 50% load (easily meets National Park Service 60dB @ 50' requirements). -- Includes exhaust pipe & power wires in conduit. -- Located in Garland TX (Dallas suburb). Buyer must pick it up or pay for freight. Won't take it w/me. -- May or may not be able to make arrangements for pickup after 06.15.17 departure. Feel welcome to call w/questions or to discuss.

  14. We bought a 36' Rexhall Rexair RV two years ago and it was fine when we took short trips but now that we want to on the road more my husband doesn't want to drive the RV alone. So we bought a nice used Ford E150 Conversion Van and plan on making that our travel vehicle and live in the large RV. We need to put in a rooftop air conditioner because we have dogs that travel with us and I want them to be comfortable in the back of the van. Any particular brand I should ask for when getting a quote? Also want to get a generator but don't know if I want to get a portable Honda or a Onan built in. What's your comments and ideas on this? Has anyone done this before? I googled and got some ideas on youtube but I want a nice looking vehicle and not a room a/c hanging out the window. We are currently in Phoenix Arizona and if you can recommend any repair or service shops that would be great too. Thanks in advance for reading and making suggestions,
