It is flat but not to wide more a beam does not have the 120 degree as stated in one sales book.one place in the trouble shooting it sead to mount near ground point up at 30 degree so that it will see heat from engine and no closer than 8 feet from car.
See my posting about it above

Jim ~ Thanks for the update on the generator problems. Jan & I will be camping at the group area at Woods Canyon Lake next weekend with our fly fishing club. I remember the rangers warning us last year about this problem. I will lock the generator in the truck at night. I'll also put the dogs on full alert (alot of good that will do) and have my 9 loaded and ready for action.

Sounds like Wander has the solution. Thanks Wander I didnt know about the Reporter I didnt know there was ever a problem with pple stealing generators. Sound like the best idea is the gen mounted on a plate and the trailer or a car setting on the plate.
We go tomorrow to pick up our "new to US, 77 Overlander"
Think I keep my gen in the truck.

how about a big *ss K9?

JUST SAYIN,

I had mine locked to trailer with security cable and hardend lock.No help they cut it and where gone. Even took lock and cable, left NO evidence.Remember you CAN NOT whem with the shot gun if you DO NOT know the bad guys are there.Need alarm that lets know you have trouble at you RV BEFORE damage is done.

Hi, Jimmini. What you want is, what I call, a door knob alarm. They are made for houses Etc. and they just hang over the door knob, they are battery powered, and have a key pad to shut them off. Once moved, they are very loud, like ear pierceing. Attach one of these to your generator and when the thief moves it, It's noise will wake up the dead.

I seem to rembember Home Depot had some solar powered motion detector lights. The idea is you could nail them to a tree or a post in your backyard, away from power.
It operates a 12V flood light, so it wouldnt be to hard to wire in one of those really anoying buzzers.
Or a silonoid to pull the trigger on a can of bear mace...........
