How to Choose the Right RV Generator for Your Needs?


What are the factors you need to consider when looking for the right RV generator? In general, it involves three variables: size, noise level and eco-friendliness.



What size generator do I need for my RV?  A generator's size refers to the power it produces. When selecting a generator for RV, you need to figure out the output you need for your appliances. To calculate your wattage needs, add your appliances' watts together. Add up the starting wattage requirements of every appliance you will run at the same time and the total is the minimum wattage needed. Consider the surge Power, you should add about 20% to your maximum load so that your unit won't suffer the abuse of running nonstop at full power. Generally speaking, the higher a generator's wattage, the more expensive it will be.

Noise Level

Consider other campers are near your running generator or some places typically have quiet hours to help limit generator noise levels, you should consider purchasing a generator that operates with a lower dBA rating. For those who frequently camp at these destinations, a silent and environmental-friendly generator is needed since noise and exhaust fumes are not welcome when camping in close quarters.
