If I plug in a GFIC plugged product into this generator will it run or will the GFIC not set or reset?

Asked by: Mobile power
A GFCI if in the operationat position will not affect the operation of the generator (assuming that the if the amperage of the circuit isn't overloaded). Obviously, if a 15 amp GFCI is used on a 20 amp circuit it will flip off if 15 amps is exceeded.

does it need a transfer switch and can it run a heat pump, microwave and 2 fridges.

Asked by: Danikadawn
It will need a transfer switch if you are using it to hook into your panel.  It would depend if all of those appliances are drawing power at the same time. It will run two fridges for sure. This would be for emergency backup not to run regular. Pick and choose what you want to run otherwise install whole home generator for $4500-12000.

Not sure BUT if it has a 30 amp plug in for a travel trailer or 5 th wheel to plug in . I would think that you would be powering up the whole trailer . NOW do let me tell you I have only used it for emergency power for my freezers (3 ) fridge ( 1 ) and lights for the louse .

Can this generator run a standard refrigerator in a pinch?  If so, would it also be able to accommodate a small electric heater?   I am thinking about getting it for the odd power failure if it can support the load.

what if I have it running to power my camping trailer and the supplied service returns will harm the unit or is there an auto cut off ?

Asked by: 09 Vapor
Most trailers have a shore power cord. When the power pedestal in a campground goes black, you disconnect the shore power cord from the pedestal and plug it into the running generator. If you have a 30A power cord, this generator has a 30A outlet. There is no need for auto cutoff as all connections are made manually.

my husband keeps asking for a generator for when we lose power will this one work to keep the fridge and other small things working?

Asked by: ladydeer
This unit has a peak of 4450W and continuous of 3550W. An appliance with a continuous draw of 700W when running may need as much as 2000W to get it started. All induction motors consume more power to start than to run. Freezers, furnaces, fridges, air conditioners etc... Although this generator could handle three or four appliances when they are running, if even two of them started at the same time, the load might exceed the generator’s capacity. It is difficult to get starting power specifications, it is better to connect furnaces, fridges and freezers one at a time to avoid an overload.

Firman Gas-Powered Portable Generator - 3550 W - 5-Gallon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing ive bought in a long time I bought this generator to replace a Generac that performed horribly. I was leary of the cheap sale price figuring I would just be bringing the Firman back as well and biting the bullet to purchase a Honda. I am taking the time to write this review because after putting approximately 150hrs on this unit that at times have been in the -30C range this unit has been incredible! it fires up first pull every time and offers smooth running performance! FIRMAN you have proven yourself to me and our cold Canadian winters! ... *Note* after 10 hours I replaced the factory break in oil with Amsoil Synthetic.
Date published: 2017-01-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Purchased on sale at incredible $300 price. Honestly generators with comparable features in the $1000 + range. Very easy to set up. Started on the second pull. I have a 10,000 watt machine but it is hard on gas, noisy and very difficult to start when below -10C. This little guy sat out all night at -25C up at my camp and started on first pull. Runs relatively quiet, all day on 5 gallons of gas and effortlessly powered my cottage while charging my solar batteries to 100% through a 90 amp smart inverter. Wish I bought one two years ago would not have lost 4 big batteries that froze and split their cases. Great investment.
Date published: 2018-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Gen! I own a trucking company and my semi doesn't have a webasto or generator. I've wanted to buy one for awhile, something powerful enough to run a heater, microwave, TV and fridge but also small enough to bolt down to the catwalk behind the can. This generator fits all my requirements. When I first set it up and did the initial startup, the generator fired up in the very first pull. It was very quiet and the dcb level between idle or on a load is hardly noticeable which is nice. I tested it out buy connecting my air compressor and a 10" circular saw. The genaerator hardly bogged down
Date published: 2017-04-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the price! So far I have only used the generator for my circular saw and chopping up a pile of wood pallets for our yard fire pit, and it worked great. My goal is to use it for camping in areas where there are no power since it has the 30A hookup. Camping season is over for 2017, so given the noise I am not yet sure if it will annoy our campsite neighbors or not until I try. I figure if you run a long extension cord and chain the generator to a distant tree this would ensure no noise pollution. It is certainly not as quiet as an inverter generator would be, but looking forward to testing it out with full A/C running, microwave, TV, speakers, etc to push the limits. Seems strong and durable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome deal when 300$ I got this generator a few weeks ago and was immediately impressed by the quality of the packaging and the fact that they include real wrenches and even the throw away bolt's that hold the motor during shipping are high quality. This generator fires up no problem, even in minus 20. And it's powerful enough to run a small welder. I used my dynasty 200 dx on it and it has no problem doing stick at 108 amps . I haven't tried and higher but I won't be surprised if I can go a lot higher. This unit impressed me so much that I told my girlfriend I would buy another if it ever went on sale again. I checked online later that day and it was back on sale so I picked up 2. This generator is light enough than a decnt sized man can put it in a truck by himself, is quiet, has lots of power and a really big fuel tank. What's not to like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little workhorse In anticipation of the snow storm that just came though Manitoba, I picked this generator up and I am SO glad that I did! I was without power for 31 hours and this generator kept me going throughout the power outtage. It ran my fridge, freezer, a couple of LED lights along with the TV and DVD player with no problem at all. With the large gas tank on it, I filled it up and only had to add more gas once through the entire time. Quality product!!!
