I've just received my new Honda EU2000i generator
. As advertised, it is 47 pounds, but I never thought that 47 pounds was really so heavy.
And when I add gasoline, it'll be a heavier still. To keep from lifting it into and out of the back of the car everytime I want to use it, I'm thinking of having a rack (or frame) welded to the top of the camper bumper on the left side and keeping it there permanently. (I would keep it covered when not running to protect it from the weather and cable locked to the frame.) I've done this for my battery
on the right side of the bumper and it has worked well for years. Anyone have any experience with this or ideas you could offer? Does it sound like it would work? I don't think that weight
would be a problem, as my tongue weight
is way up there.
Also, what do you do when you want to run the generator
for AC and it looks like rain is coming when you go to bed? (Instructions said to keep it dry.)
I sure would appreciate any of your ideas on this!
