Sizing A Generator

In case others missed the Home Power article by Jim Goodnight "Sizing a Generator for your RE System", I thought it was very well done.

Good to see they featured the Cummins Onan on upper end applications. Having owned one about a year, I agree.

    Thanks Bill, I didn't have the link. I do remember Jim before he left Outback for Schneider now I believe.

    You guys sure have given me a good technical education the past 6 years. Better understanding for sure.

    Well done.
