Hour Meter (See Fig 19)

Use this meter along with the manual to determine when and what type of service on the unit is needed. The display will show the word “LUBE” at the first 25 hours of operation and again at every 100 hours of operation after.

Power Management

  • Start engine without anything connected to generator.
  • When engine has stabilized, plug in and turn on first load. It is strongly recommended to plug in devices with the largest output first and the smallest output last to help prevent overloading the generator.
  • Allow generator output to stabilize (engine and attached devices run evenly) before plugging in the next load.

Charging a 12 Volt Battery (See Fig 20)

This generator can be used to charge a 12 volt automotive or storage battery by taking the following steps:

  • Inspect fluid level of the battery cells.
  • Add ONLY distilled water to any cell where fluid level is low. Never add tap water.
  • Use a wire brush to clean battery terminals if corroded.
  • Connect the Battery Charging Cable Connection Plug to the 12 Volt D.C. Receptacle.
  • Connect the red cable clamp to the positive (+) battery terminal.
  • Connect the black cable clamp to the negative (-) battery terminal.
  • Start generator engine. Let engine run while battery charges.
  • Battery is considered fully charged when the gravity of its fluid is 1.260 or higher when measured by a hydrometer. It is strongly recommended to use a hydrometer to test for battery charge and condition. Be careful to follow the hydrometer manufacturer’s instruction.

Installing Support Leg (See fig 2)

  • Parts needed – Support leg & M8 screw (2) and 2 nuts.
  • Raise the front end of the generator high enough to gain access to the bottom of the frame. Securely position props underneath to support.
  • Line up holes on the support leg bracket to the holes on the front of the generator frame.
  • Attach the support leg using M8 screws (2) and nuts.
