Thanks so much for the update. FYI the discount code is still working (5/10 8am) and I placed my order this morning a few minutes ago. Can't beat the utility of this generator. My plan is to use it on propane when I'm traveling and when home use it with natural gas. Shipping is also free and no sales tax. $1,067 + $49 for the extension hose.

If others are interested now is the time to grab one.

Jack

Thanks,

Peter

That was for the EF2000iSV2. Me wife uses a dialysis machine at night. This will supply ample power to run it, the electronics of the fridge, lighting and furnace if necessary.

Thanks Jack,

I just called them and the code is no longer good this morning. They are going to email their best price on the 1000 watt unit I asked about on those other threads. The list price on the site is $1071 for the package incl. the tri-fuel reg., tach, and hose.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f448...0i-147804.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f448...ne-148661.html

PS edit their site says they have been swamped with new orders FYI so it is hard to get through.

Need generator act today

Web site shows $1,167.20 so if they offered you 1,071, they are still giving you the discount.....oh wait, I saw in the other thread you were going for the 1000 watt unit. Their web guy was supposed to come in at 9am eastern. He probably pulled the code off by the time you called. I may have been the last person to get the deal.

Got a call. They apparently sold a lot of generators. They have to wait for a new shipment from Yamaha so it will be a couple of weeks before I get mine.

Same here at the $1071 price referenced earlier for the tri-fuel 1000 watt package.

FYI US Gen has confirmed that the shipment incl. our 1k unit is still about a week out. They did receive other models so you might want to check in with them, Jack.

Got my generator last week. Pulled it out today to start the break in process. (Running 2 hours on gasoline with a half load draw). I'm 35 minutes into the run time at this point. Engine is running 3700 rpm and I'm drawing 800 watts. All looks good. Engine started on second pull with full choke. I shut off the choke after about 10 seconds of run time. I flipped the switch to eco mode and the engine slowed down to a quiet idle. As I added load the engine speeded up to match the wattage load.

Once we get through the break in, I'll try a run on propane.

Well with 4 minutes to go I ran out of gas. Close enough. The hour meter on the engine shows 1.9 hours. I didn't want to leave gasoline in it so I guessed pretty well on the amount of fuel to add when I gassed it up.

Lookin' good, thanks!

Did you get extra propane hose from them to hook up to the trailer's propane BBQ port (if you have one), or are you planning on using separate bottles with the new gen? Often we locate the generator at the back of our site, where it is quieter for the neighbors, so I am planning on getting some extra hose [depending on site of course]. I assume these longer hoses are also available online with the quick-release fittings standard, like air hoses.

Good timing to use up the gas that way . . .

I don't have an external gas port on my vintage of trailer. I did buy a 12' hose and regulator kit from US Carburetor when I bought the generator from them. My plan would be to disconnect one tank if necessary, or use my 11 lb BBQ tank that I carry with me.

So today I put the fittings together and hooked the generator up to the BBQ tank that I carry. As I noted I ran the gasoline out of the generator during the break in phase so at this point there is no gas in the generator.

All I did was turn the on off switch to on, push a spring loaded button on the engine regulator a couple of times (you can hear the propane flow when you push the button in). Then I pulled the starter handle a couple of times. The engine started much like it did on gasoline. Once it starts and warms, you can adjust a load block set screw to get the best rpm. They key on this generator is to turn the screw to get the best rpm on the installed tach and then you close the screw to lean out the flow. Once the rpm drops, you go back a tad richer to get the speed back. US Carburetor notes in their instructions that propane and natural gas burns cleaner and cooler if the engine is running on the lean side.

Supposedly you are supposed to make this adjustment with a full load on the generator. I was only running about 1/3 load so I plan to readjust with a full load on. I'll do that when I get the trailer home in the driveway. The generator with no load ran at 1500 rpm. When I put a 1/3 load it went up to 3000 rpm. If I turned off the automatic load adjustment switch on the generator, it went up to 4,000 rpm. The load adjustment switch is used to conserve fuel with the load determining engine speed.

Bottom line my plan for now is to use propane for the generator with the possibility of running on natural gas if I'm home. I'm also looking at getting a transfer switch at home so that the generator can power the refrigerator, furnace, and my wife's dialysis equipment. Until I get that switch, I'll probably use propane as my fuel at home until I get the switch and the natural gas quick disconnect hose.

I didn't want to go to a lot of work at home until I proved out the tri-fuel concept. Now that I've proven the gas/propane side, I'll pursue getting the home side set up.

Not having the inbuilt gas line on the trailer isn't a big thing for me. We use approximately one tank of gas a year so one is always full and available for use. I know there are components that I can buy that will allow me to have a second high pressure port off the tank. I used to have one on my old SOB to run my gas grill without having to disconnect the tank's connection to the trailer. For the now I will just unscrew the POL connection off one tank if I need to use the generator. I normally only run with one valve open anyway.

Jack
