Keeping your generator in tip-top shape is a must for any RVer or camper. For some, it is the primary electricity source for backcountry or dry camping. For others, it is your backup in case things don’t go to plan. Either way, protecting and maintaining your generator is very important for both your comfort and safety.
Because you have to operate your generator outdoors, the elements can be tough on delicate components and can cause your unit to age quickly, increasing the chances of a failure. As you know, generators are NOT cheap and if you’ve had to repair or replace one in the past, the bill can be a doozy. Fortunately, one of the most important preventative steps you can take is a pretty easy one.
Specialized covers for your valuable equipment come in all shapes in sizes and you can find one that is specifically designed for your generator. Most covers are made of heavy-duty water-resistant vinyl with elastic bands that will help ensure a snug fit around your generator as well as easy access when it’s time to fire it up. If you tend to move your generator around quite a bit, consider a cover that leaves the wheels free so you can scoot it around as you please.
