David, I think they would but John is from Texas..I was very lucky I did not get them in my R.V..because I had quite a few bites..more than 20, looked like a small rash..My R.V has a outside shower option as well as a full bath Inside..I showered outside to wash off my dive gear from the salt water..I think this is what saved me..

I have been going to the Keys for 20 years and no problem but the last few years..The sand fleas have been a real problem..

The Trillium is a Divers dream camper..I left all the cushions at home and replaced them with Air mattresses..I removed all the carpets and just rinse out the bare Fiberglass floors..

Very neat set-up. Would the gen be safe to use enclosed like that, I always thought that a gen should be set back some away from trailer, for safety reasons, Carl

Hi Carl..The Honda is a draw through design so all the exhaust and cooling air exits through the rear of the unit... I have a C/ M unit in right beside the Honda in the sealed box and one inside the camper..Both have never set off due to high levels..

I have run the generator at night from 6 pm to 7 am every day for the last 10 days I have been in South Florida..So far so good..Its nice to be able to start and stop it from Inside the camper..The Honda is whisper quiet and runs on less than 2 dollars a Day..

I got spoiled by my R.V having power at the push of a button..Now my Trillium has the same..

Per Honda's PDF safety sheet for the 2000 generator:

* Never operate a generator inside your house, garage, basement or an enclosure of any kind because its carbon monoxide exhaust fumes are deadly.

* Position your generator outside but close to the house or household panel while maintaining a minimum clearance of one meter (3 feet) on all sides of the generator.

* Do not operate the generator while it is on a vehicle.

* Avoid a place exposed to direct sunlight when putting the generator on a vehicle. If the generator is left in an enclosed vehicle for many hours, high temperature inside the vehicle could cause fuel to vaporize resulting in a possible explosion.

* Honda generators should not be operated in the rain or snow.

I am fully aware of the Honda Disclaimer..I am surprised it only states 3 feet from the house..That must of been some fight between the Honda Liability Lawyers and the Honda Engineers..I am surprised the Honda Liability lawyers allow you to put fuel in the generator and start. It up..

The Honda operating manual states, on Page 8:
http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/...s/31Z07610.pdf
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Keep the generator at least 3 feet (1 meter) away from buildings


and other equipment during operation.


Do not enclose the generator in any structure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While it's a clever way to carry the generator, I hope that you are removing the generator from that enclosure when running it and moving the exhaust away from being right below the window.



Added Comment: I guess you can see where this is going.

Hi William and welcome. Just curious where Roadsterrz and BuzzBunny are located in Ontario. I'm in Waterloo and just got my 76 Trillium 1300 renovated to the point where I am finally going to use it to go camping next weekend. Will post pics soon.
