RV generators are built specifically for powering RV appliances and accessories you would use in an RV. They have approximately three times the horsepower (HP) of ordinary models. They run at a comparatively lower speed, which typically allows for the sound to be muffled. Plus, they are made to be used for many hours in a row, to meet the unique power requirements of recreational vehicle enthusiasts.
Whether you own an RV, or intend to buy one soon, you will need a reliable source of power for your travels.

RV generators are specially designed for these types of vehicles to provide power when you are out in the wilderness or on the road, and to fit standard recreational vehicle configurations.

Whether you are out in the boonies, or at an RV park that doesn't have hookups, a quiet and reliable power source can really make your stay more pleasant.

More than 80 Years of Power Generation Experience - Onan RV Generators
Onan, a subsidiary of Cummins Inc., has more than 80 years of power generation experience. Onan is known for its MicroLite RV Generators – that have noise level ratings below the standards set by the National Park Service.

The MicroLite 2500 LP model is considered easy to install, compact, quiet and features a completely enclosed muffler. This model is lightweight, making it well suited for campers, trailers and small Type Bs and Type Cs. It has been named the quietest generator for its size. This model offers single side service for maintenance, and is completely enclosed.

Tips For Selecting A Generator For Your RV

When purchasing one of these units, ensure the height of the equipment does not stick past its bed rails. Mounting the unit on the sound-absorbing thick rubber pads reduces noise level. Another way to reduce the noise level would be to supplement the motor’s muffler with any large muffler or an automobile muffler.


These powerhouses are more expensive than normal generators. For this reason, some RV'ers use average portable generators. However, you have to place these items some distance away to avoid the loud noise they make. Unless you have the largest portable generator on the market, you will not be able to use your A/C. Unloading and loading the powerhouse, plus a sizable length of heavy gauge extension cords long enough to reach your RV, are some of the other drawbacks of portable generators. You have to walk up to the equipment every time you wish to start or stop it. There is a possibility of theft. If you intend to purchase a portable generator, go for one made for recreational vehicles.

Whatever avenue you use to find the right power supply for your RV, be sure to inspect the equipment carefully. Evaluate the warranty. Those who travel into the wilderness for extended periods may even want to purchase two generators, one for backup, so they are never without power. If you are purchasing a used generator, find out how many hours it has been run, is any time left on the warranty, you might even consider having a mechanic check it out prior to making your purchase.
