Dry Camping

Hi, we recently purchased a 2017 Thor Chateau 28Z and i'm curious how long the generator will last while dry camping. We plan on using the AC, radio and TV. We'll do this often at BBQ competitions where they don't provide water or electric.

Thanks in advance!

At half load it will burn about 1/2 gal/hr. Fill your fuel tank just before you arrive at your event. The generator will starve for fuel when your tank gets to about 1/4 full, safety feature to keep tank from running dry.

I have run our 4000 generator for four days non stop and still had fuel to get down the road, wife likes to fall asleep with tv on.
