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!



About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
