The Adventures of Airstream Mikie

Mikie Gets a Juice Box

I couldn't take it any longer, so I finally splurged and ordered the Yamaha EF2400IS generator (inverter) with mods to run on propane or gas. In a discussion this morning with the technical support guy Bill Nutter, I learned that only the next size up allows a remote start, and that is twice the weight, so I'm going to have to use the pull start. I'm not looking forward to that in nasty weather!

This generator will need to have a custom made housing to protect it from the weather. Additional mods will be needed to tap into the propane line on the Airstream. This will eliminate the need for a separate propane tank to supply the generator.

Continuing in the spirit of shopping, I dropped in to Camping World and got myself some jack pads and a couple of shopping bags of cheap stuff you can't live without but will probably break or not work almost immediately.
