Add A Generator To Your 5th Wheel or Travel Trailer

RVer Jim Fifer installed this “Juice Box” generator on the back of his 5th wheel. This generator is made by Onan a trusted name in the industry. The generator platform inserts into a receiver hitch so it rides neatly tucked away on the rear of the RV. Jim’s generator runs on liquid propane gas using .6 gallons an hour running full tilt. A propane quick connector is located on the frame at the rear of the 5er. Jim connects a short hose to the generator runs it down through the hole and into the connector on the frame. The generator has it’s own starting battery. When he fires it up he closes the lid and enjoys electricity. It's much easier to boondock if you have a generator. I used a Honda portable generator with our 5th wheel, but it was underpowered and required me to carry gas when I was driving a diesel truck. I had to dig it out of the storage compartment, fill it with fuel, pull the string a few times - it was a hassle.This system is a huge improvement in ease of use and may be the solution you’re looking for. You can purchase the Juice Box at RV parts stores carrying Onan products. Keeping you current - Jim Twamley, Professor of RVing

  • There is nothing special about this setup. All it takes is $4,000.00 plus to throw at the problem.You can do the same thing with the new 4500 watt Yamaha for a lot less money.
