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.

A special Thank You to our friends and Patreon Ron & Lisa Beard Beard for supporting our channel and videos like this one.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Power Pro Technology 1000 Watt Generator - Running a full size LG refrigerator

I recently bought this little Power Pro Technology 1000 watt generator to have as a backup power source. I saw this on sale for only $90, so I thought I'd give it a try. I specifically wanted a small generator for the lower fuel consumption and portability. This will run for 5-6 hours on one gallon of gas and only weighs about 35 pounds. The only downside is that the two-stroke engine requires mixed fuel.

This video shows me starting it up and plugging the fridge in for the first time. My refrigerator is really big, so I was worried if the surge current would be too much for this little generator. It wasn't a problem at all. The fridge started right up. I ran it for a full hour without any problems. I'm confident it would run the fridge easily during an extended blackout.

I also considered a small Harbor Freight generator, but the running wattage was only 700 watts. This one is a better buy.

I didn't receive anything for making this video.

Running a 30 amp Camper With Two Harbor Freight Predator Generators

This is two Harbor Freight 1,600 - 2,000 watt generators connected with a parallel connector. For this test I ran the A/C, refrigerator and television. I would probably turn something off before kicking on the coffee maker or microwave. These generators are super quiet and you can barely hear them running inside.

I got this system primarily for emergency power but the twin generators give me the flexibility to take one when I don't need the big setup. The twin generator configuration means double the maintenance and higher up front costs. We felt the costs were justified because the generators are easier to move. I couldn't life the 3,500 watt generator but I can load these in the truck without assistance.

Energizer 2000-Watt Generator=Great Price, Very Reliable— 2 1/2 Year Review

Energizer 2000-Watt Generator on Amazon ($429 Nov, 2019):


2 1/2 Years ago I was given one of these generators to do a long-term review on, and it has passed with flying colors!! I gave it to my friend Carolyn, from Carolyns RV Life, and she has used it a great deal and it is still running like a champ!! It’s so cheap, and yet still very reliable, that we bought one for the 501c3, Homes on Wheels Alliance. I highly recommend this generator to you if you need one!

Fulltime RVing LIMITED TIME SALE ON PREDATOR GENERATOR and more items to share

Saw this coupon on a Harbor Freight flyer. Looks like a great price on a small generator. Plus more items I got.

Harbor Freight Predator inverter generator compared to Champion Inverter generator

Harbor Freight Predator 3500/3000 watt inverter generator compared to Champion 100233 - 3400/3100 Watt Inverter Generator.

I ended up with the Champion because the Predator died 6 months after I bought it. Never used it just break in and monthly warm ups. It was replaced but not until after my first RV trip. It died the day before the trip during the test run. So I ran out and bought the Champion to break it in for the no hook up site.

Now I have redundancy if one breaks I will have a back up.

Likewise My Ecoworth solar controller also lasted a few months dying the week before the first trip. ( )

I eventually replaced it with a very awesomely impressive Victron Blutooth one. ( )

I will buy a back up solar controller for when I am retired on long trips. Redundancy is the key word there again.

After installing the Micro-Air EasyStart 364 soft start we are able to start and run our RV air conditioner using a small Westinghouse iGen2500 inverter generator. Now we can run our air conditioning while boondocking and dry camping without having to lug around a huge generator that is large enough to start our air conditioner on it's own. This solution saves us precious storage space, costs less, is more fuel efficient, and is quieter.

Buffalo Tools Sportsman 4000 Watt Generator Series - Electric Start Parts Unboxing 2

This is the second in a series of videos on modifications to our Sportsman 4000W RV Generator made by Buffalo Tools. This video we unbox the parts order for the upgrade to a generator electric starter motor. After watching a LOT of video and much research, I have determined this motor to be very very similar to the Harbor Freight 212cc motor/engine used on a lot of go carts. This motor is used on a lot of equipment and is very common.

Given that I am correct in my research, the Generator Electric Start Kit for the Honda GX-200 should fit nicely. My ultimate goal is RV Generator Installation, permanently mounting this generator on our RV with sound baffling and remote mounting the electric start controls inside the RV, so we can start it up and use it without having to go outside. We may, or may not keep the gasoline tank ... that decision will be made as we roll through this particular RV modification.

It is my understanding that there are 3 versions of the Harbor Freight 212cc motor. The older version, the Hemi Version and the later version. The information in this video does not apply to the Hemi Version, at all. The Hemi Version has a cast aluminum valve cover. This information on electric starter install works with all non-hemi versions of the 212cc motor that I am aware of. I believe that all of the Buffalo Tools Sportsman 4000 Watt Generators all use this same motor.

Hi campers. I'm David. After much convincing by friends in my traveling group, I have decided to create this YouTube channel to share with you a few ideas to hopefully make your journey a better one.
Having retired from the robotics industry and engineering design, I'm always looking for ways to permanently unplug our 24' Class C RV from the campground pedestal to more fully enjoy all of the beautiful places this great country has to offer.
So you are most welcome to come join me at the campfire as we share our quest for freedom, in comfort. Remember, there is always room for one more out here. I'll see you then. I'm Gone Boondocking ;)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q- Is there enough space between the outside unit and the wall to allow proper circulation?
A - To ensure that there would be no restriction on the condenser fan, I measured the fan's velocity with an anemometer and then multiplied it by the area of the exhaust fan's plenum. That gave me the absolute maximum airflow possible for the intake air of the condenser. I then doubled that number, so the pressure on the intake side of the fan would be 50%, or half, of the restriction on the exhaust side of the fan, and calculated the distance from the wall divided by the area of the horizon gap at the intake, minus the area on the left side of the unit that is not facing the wall. This means that there would be no extra restriction on the condenser fan as long as I keep the condenser coils clean, which I continue to do.

Q - Can the dehumidified water be used as potable water/drinking water?
A – Yes, if it is filtered properly (carbon filter, reverse osmosis, UV sterilization). Check this out: NUBE: Air to Water Generator

Sportsman 4000W Generator - Mounting the Generator Electric Starter 5

This is the fifth in a series of videos on modifications to our Sportsman 4000W RV Generator made by Buffalo Tools. In this video we mount the starter to the engine. We will need to cut the engine cover to accommodate the starter. You will need to get some hardware for this part of the project.

Needed hardware:
M6 X 1.0 25mm length Hex Head (1)
M6 X 1.0 30mm length Hex Head (1)

If you are mounting the 12 Volt Generator for lights, etc you will also need:

M6 X 1.0 20mm length Hex Head (2)

After watching a LOT of video and much research, I have determined this motor to be very very similar, if not exactly the same, to the Harbor Freight 212cc motor/engine used on a lot of go carts. This motor is used on a lot of equipment and is very common.
