Except to protest Norm's weird dismissal of the O. P.'s very simple and perfectly legitimate question/concern, I have posted only a suggestion that the noise/vibration of a tongue-mounted generator is likely to be a nuisance on the (single-hull) trailer under discussion. Certainly I've said nothing that can support your judgement of me above.


Please do me the courtesy of actually reading my posts before adding my name to your enemies-of-camping list.

Not at all, but a lot of campers (The Human Kind) can make it that way, both for themselves as well as others.

I think most accidents happen in the home and then within 20 miles of the home, while going to/from or even within camping!!

And, where do people spend most of their time? At or near home.

i see a lot of trailers with generators mounted on the tongue. But from what I can tell, most are not run on the tongue but just stored.

That proves it! Home is dangerous, I think I will go camping for my own safety. Sure boss will understand.

I also suggest you read what I said and didn't say. After that if you believe my posts make me one of the "nanny safety officers" I'm all good with that.

Due to having grown up on an Island with frequent power outages I have used generators for years but I am willing to admit I learned a few new things about the safe or not so safe use of generators from this thread. I am also good with admitting publicly that I wasn't born with the knowledge of such things as some others here apparently were.

As far as believing that camping is the most dangerous thing you can do... well if thats what you wish to take from this thread then have at it. I have no problems with people forming their own opinions based on the information provided - rightly or wrongly.

Don't know why but this kind of reminded me of a humours link to why women outlive men that a friend sent me .

Seems that some people never do read any of the memo's in regards to safe practises.

My brother tells a joke.

"Why do husbands tend to die before their wives? Because they want to."

Well I know my wife does not want to kill me.... at least not until she figures out a way that won't void my life insurance. And I finish some work on the camper.

Secret to a long marriage: Always be sure to have two ongoing projects when you finish up a project.
Secret to a happy one: Don't do said projects in the living room (or at least take the tools out afterwards).

I'm also in Carols Camp.....

Because more than just the OP and responders reads the post, I always try to include the least informed in my answers, And, if it's the 127th time I have done same, so be it, a lot of Newbies will have joined and may not seen my earlier posts on the topic.

If I bug 100 readers with my Nannyisms, but prevent one person from making a unnecessary and possibly serious mistake, so be it.....

Too much banter totally unrelated to the topic, some of which has been removed.
