simply questions

Could anyone shed some light on a few simply questions? Can I run the gen while I am driving? Any potential problems with it? Also, I see in the owners manual that the 28 ft Argosy has a Vacuum outlet? Where is this located and does all 28 ft MH have this feature. The MH is new to me and not where I can look at it. Any held would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!

Yes, the gen is designed to be running while you drive.
I have a canister type vaccuum cleaner in my 28. It is located in the small closet in the rear bath. It requires a cartridge filter (NLA) and a hose.

Is the canister where you can see it or is it hidden. In the manual, it looks like it should be in the pantry to the right of the refrig. Is this correct? Also, was this an option or a standard appliance? Thanks a ton!!!!!

My 82 does not have the vacuum. Th canister on yours looks like a can, standing up in the closet area, towards the bottom. Its a nice feature, optional.
I run the generator when driving for a/c roof use, and the kids tv. I bought a small inverter to use Tv and video games when driving and the generator is off.
The only problem running the gen is it uses more gas..but only a gallon or so every hour or two it runs, depending on the load it has on it.
