Fridge is on a distinguished road
BTRAFFORS:

Yep, that's the boat although the name has gone through some changes since the boat was in production. Originally it was two words - Down East. I guess my main concern was the weight and location - the engine already sits about as aft as possible and the generator would be on the port side located about where the rear of the engine is. I just didn't want to put too much weight to the far aft and to one side and then have to put all the beer on the other side of the boat for balance.

F-P has come out with a newer version of their older generators and this one is a 4 KW and is supposed to be quieter than typing on your keyboard. If they now have the support group in place to manage any problems then this becomes a very attractive unit because of it's size, noise level and economy of usage. This 4 KW is also a match for my 30 amp system that will allow me to run my AC unit along with other 110 accessories while keeping the batteries charged.

Thanks for the input.
