What kind of portable generator do I need for my RV?
About 10 percent of American households over the age of 55 own a recreational vehicle (RV). However, some use motorhomes and campers for occasional travel and special events while some call their RVs home. As a result, the number of fulltime RVers in the United States is about one million, according to RVing Guide. When you own an RV, you can travel almost anywhere, anytime, set your own agenda and let the open road guide you. But there’s one important thing every traveler needs and that’s a portable generator! A portable generator is ideal for charging and powering equipment and devices while traveling, as well as during recreational activities.
Camping is one of the most popular activities in the United States. More than 7 million new U.S. households have adopted the camping lifestyle since 2014. Whether you drive a grand Class A motorhome, steer a mid-sized Class C or tow a travel trailer behind you, you’ll need a reliable power source for all of your essential accessories, equipment and devices.
Let’s Generate Some Power
Buying a portable generator is well worth the initial investment. You’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without one. However, before you purchase a generator, make sure to select a model that fits your power needs.
When it comes to generators, size does matter. Make sure you get the right amount of power for the right price. Here’s a math equation you’ll want to consider: Amps x Volts = Watts.
Before considering your generator options, take a look around your RV. What accessories, equipment and devices will you need power to operate? A coffee maker, a TV, a laptop, an air conditioner? Will you need to charge or run any of these at the same time? To determine what size generator you will need, add up the total watts of all the items for which you’ll need power and select a generator model that can easily handle your anticipated needs. At Mi-T-M, we’ll be glad to help you make these calculations.
