Generator for my RV - Predator 3500 Generator

After getting my RV setup for camping I quickly realized I needed a generator for dry camping (boondocking). I went with Predator due to positive reviews, price, and overall met all my needs.

Harbor Freight Predator 3500 Watt Generator Pushed To The Limit!!

We know the Harbor Freight Predator 3500 Watt Generator is a great value and super quiet but can it power our entire NuCamp RV TaB 400 teardrop trailer? We push this inverter generator to the limit in this video.

Predator 3500 Inverter Generator

We decided it was time to pick up a generator. We were leaning hard towards a Honda, Yamaha, or Champion, but couldn't say no to the price of a Predator from Harbor Freight.

I unbox it, get it running, then do a break-in oil change. Overall we are VERY happy with it so far.

Harbor Freight Predator 3500 watt generator Noise Test running the RV Air Conditioner?

In this video, we test both the Harbor Freight Predator 3500 watt generator and the Generac ix2000 generator for noise levels while running our Dometic 10,500 btu Cool Cat air conditioner in our 2018 NuCamp T@B 400. We measure the sound using a decibel meter app on our iphone from 23 feet away from the generator.

The Predator 3500 Review

Predator 3500 Watt Super Quiet Inverter Generator from Harbor Freight

We got rid of our Champion 4k Generator and got a Predator 3500 Inverter/Generator! The Predator 3500 watt inverter/Generator is way quieter. It is also more fuel efficient.
The predator 3500 Inverter/Generator features electric start, a 2.8 Gallon fuel tank and super quiet at 57db.
So far it runs perfectly. I recommend the predator 3500 Inverter/Generator for RV and camping. I got it at Harbor freight but is also available at Amazon under various labels.

Predator 3kw Super Quiet Generator from Harbor Freight

what to expect and how to get it ready to use. Add oil and connect battery. Check out part 2 for starting and running the generator. (decided to compile more into part 2, will have it up soon)


Our first RV Solar installation had a glaring problem that I didn't realize until I researched the battery manufacturer website. Now that our solar setup is perfect, I want to run the AC anytime as well :)

RV Solar and RV Generator write up:

In this video I show you the components we use for our solar, as well as the generator we carry so we can run anything in our camper anytime we like. The key is having the generator in a spot where you essentially forget about it until you want it.

Electric and Solar POWER Off Grid: Our Poor Man's RV Solution!

It is time to share our 7 AFFORDABLE sources we use for electric and solar power off grid: Our Poor Man's RV Solution for bringing power wherever you go!

Links to some of the products we mention in this video can be found below.

Boondocking or camping off grid can be an amazing experience without power. However, sometimes our family craves those creature comforts such as a nice little heater, a cup of coffee, lights, and refrigerated food. In this episode we will be sharing the 7 items we bring with us to supply electricity for weeks on end while we are off grid. We will be sharing a few unique power supplies we bring along on every boondocking trip plus our rv solar panels, rv inverter, our newest portable power station aka solar generator, and our trusted little 27,000 mAH portable battery bank.

How to Power an RV Air Conditioner with Solar - Full Time RV Living

Everyone wants to know how to power an RV air conditioner with solar - or if it's even possible! So lets dive right in and figure out how to power an RV air conditioner with solar! Check out the blog post on our website for more details!





Check out the rest of our videos:

Check out our video install of the Micro-Air EasyStart 364 soft start so you can power your air conditioner with a small generator or inverter:

***INFORMATION UPDATE*** Our 13,500 BTU RV air conditioner actually pulls about 150 amps instead of 73 amps while running. In the video I did not allow the A/C to run long enough for the compressor to kick on. Unfortunately this means, to run our A/C regularly, it requires roughly double the wattage of solar panels (so 1500 watts) and at least double the amp-hour battery bank capacity (150+ Ah per hour of A/C usage at night) described in the video. However, at these high current loads the battery’s Ah capacity drops considerably and won’t last nearly as long as it would at lower current loads so you’ll probably need much more than 150 Ah battery capacity per hour of usage. The starting wattage information is correct however. But installing a soft starter can alleviate the high starting wattage requirement and therefore a smaller inverter, such as a 3000 watt inverter, can be used.
The message is still the same though. To regularly run the A/C on solar you will need an incredibly big solar array and battery bank. So much so that, in my opinion, it is not worth it. Your best bet is to either get used to no A/C or - and I hate to say this - run a generator when you need A/C. Thanks!!

Since making the series of videos and posts on RV solar, one question is continuously asked by a multitude of people. Is it possible to power RV air conditioning with solar? The short answer is yes! So lets find out what it takes to have a solar powered air conditioner!

RV Camping with Family

RV Camping with Family. Hello again fellow campers and travelers. Hope all is well for you and your family. Got a fun one for you. This Memorial Day we got a chance to finally see some family again and boy did we make the most of it. As some of you may know Kim and I park our Lance Travel Trailer at Kim's sisters and her husband's home in rural Oregon. They have 20 beautiful acres and they invited us and Kim's parents out to stay in our trailers for the weekend. Kim and I stayed in our Lance RV and her parents stayed in their brand new Quantum KW29 motorhome. That is one nice unit.

We did a little grilling, dirt bike riding, shooting, corn hole, engine work, chopped some wood, etc. You name it we pretty much did it. Oh, and how could I forget another hot wing challenge. That was hilarious. The best times are the times we get to spend rv camping with family. It doesn't happen enough so we are grateful everytime we can all get together.

Want to say thank you to all of you out there that have served our great Country or are currently serving. Kim and I appreciate everything you have done for us. We are forever grateful.
