Firing Up the Genny! TrailerLuvTv

Time to break in the new generator! This 3500 watt Champion will power our campette. We're teaming up with a TrailerLuv pal, Roy for a campette inside the larger Camp Nomadia at Burning Man. 

This is a brand new genny so we have to prime it and run it for about ten hours prior to taking it out to the playa:


It's a bit louder than we'd like (and that our fellow campers would like)...so, we'll be building a "quiet" box to go around the genny. It''ll have four sides but no top so exhaust can ventilate.

It actually took about 20 pulls before I realized I was choking it too much! Once I backed the choke down to 50%, it fired right up!

I can't wait to complain about the noise!

Watching that again I am very glad I spent $2K on the Honda...

yeah, I'd say that's definitely "a bit" louder than your campmates would like!!
