Great for running the RV while out on the road, or for keeping essential appliances going during a power outage, the Sportsman 4,000 Watt Dual Fuel Generator has the power and flexibility to handle the task. This generator runs on either unleaded gasoline or propane gas, so you can use whichever fuel is more easily available or affordable at the moment. With the Sportsman Dual Fuel Generator, you get the long lasting, clean burning advantage of propane gas, plus the familiar and easy to find benefits of unleaded gasoline. With 4,000 peak watts and 3,500 rated watts the Sportsman Dual Fuel Generator is a powerful generator than can handle the needs of most contractors, homeowners and recreational activities. Equipped with four 120 Volt outlets, a single 120 Volt RV outlet, and a 12 Volt DC outlet for battery charging, this generator can handle almost everything you need for camping or tailgating. With a 50 percent load, the Sportsman 4,000 Watt Dual Fuel Generator can run for 10 hours on a full tank of gasoline (3.6 gallons) and 12 hours with a full 20 lbs. LP cylinder (the common gas grill type, not included). A 5 foot propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The 7 HP engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 69 Db. The Sportsman 4,000 Watt Dual Fuel Generator is ideal for anyone who needs affordable, flexible, and portable power. Unfortunately, this model cannot be converted to operate with natural gas.

I'll save some people a click. NOT CARB APPROVED.
It would certainly work for that. Would also run a small window AC. The issue for me is I have a well and this unit does not have 220v to operate the well.

If you get it here is a tip. Try to only run it using ONLY propane. Using gasoline just once creates a maintenance headache that most users don't do correctly or at all. Then when they need to use it 2 years later it won't start.

For those using this with an RV - don't. An inverter generator will make your electronics happy, lower noise level and less weight. If you are spending the big bucks on an RV the spend the extra on an inverter generator. There have been very good Slick Deals in the past and will surely be more in the future. About a year a go I purchased a Champion 3400 dual fuel generator for less than $700 including tax and shipping. It is 10db quieter and came with a 3 year manufacture warranty.
That's great in theory but the price increase for the sanity of me and my neighbors when a power hookup isn't available just doesn't make it worth it... unless you have a Slickdeal to reference for an inverted generator?

The description states "great for running the RV"

Do everyone a favor and leave these noisy units at the construction site where they belong. Spend just a bit more and get a quiet inverter type generator if you plan on using it to go camping with.

What about keeping this for power outages, just to run a fridge, a fan, and a few LED lights?

You bring this camping, you're going to run into altercations with people already on a short fuse.

It's all device specific. You'll have to look up the Starting wattage and Running wattage for each device. Older devices draw more power, newer draw less. The "average" fridge runs @ 700 watts and starts w/ 1400 watts. You have to be certain that if all devices kicked on at the same time that you don't go over the running watts rating on the generator.

Here is Sportsman's reference guide for wattage calculations.

I've had this brand generator before (not this model) and it worked well. I was planning on building a cover for it to cut down on noise but it wasn't that loud. If you were going to use it at a campground I would definitely have it covered or use a DIY muffler for it.

this is a great deal
any comments on this engine 212cic

i just bought one with LCT 223CC that i know has a good track record
and has over 1000w higher starting watts
its the Green-Power America GN5250DW 5250-Watt Propane and Gasoline Powered Dual Fuel Generator [amazon.com]
its $359 shipped
5,250 Starting Watts with 4,250 Running Watts for Gas
& 4,750 Starting Watts with 3,800 Running Watts for Propane


Surge watts/running watts may be reduced by ~10% when using propane fuel vs using gasoline
try to only run Propane and
and even on Propane keep it far from humans and never think you can run it in doors
