not even close.
so the 2nd or 3rd nights of full furnace use become issues when overnighting without hookups.
genset can be bolted down/cable secured, tail gate dropped but lift gate closed and so on.
the PRIMARY issue (after venting) is getting a genset started when it's COLD outside.
it's not ONE PULL at 30 degrees and i use 0-30 syn in the winter.
like most topics this one has been extremely well covered in older threads, including pix.
HCs from the northland is the member who did the primo set up inside the shell with a slide, lpgas, security and Ffan venting...
IF planning to do much genset starting in the winta' go with the remote/lecric start.
