RV Daily Tips Issue 432. July 22, 2014 | RV Travel
Why buy an “RV” generator when a Home Depot-type generator is cheaper?
In this segment of “Ask the RV Expert” RVtravel.com editor Chuck Woodbury talks with RV electricity expert Mike Sokol about RV generators. Mike explains how a portable generator designed for RV use differs from far cheaper and often more powerful generators found at places like Home Depot and Lowes. Be sure to get Mike’s eBook, RV Electrical Safety, available at Amazon.com.
One of the other major items Mike did not go into is the fact that “home depot contractor” generators DO NOT have clean power, and the so called RV generators do. The big price difference is for the invertor and the better quality generator it self. Inverters make (provide) clean power just the same as you would have at your outlet in your home, contractor generators make what is called “dirty power” and should not be used to power things that have circuit boards in them (ie; radios, refrigerators, TV’s etc.) So always do your home work and buy right not just price!
