154BH - Considering Generator - where to put it?
We bought our new 2016 Jayco 154bh back in March and we're ready for our first big trip. We've taken it to a local state campground and tested it out a bit - though I would have liked some more testing time. We're leaving for San Diego in 6 days and I'm thinking about getting generator from our local Costco. It's a 2100 starting watts/1700 running watts Homelite Powerstroke with a digital inverter. It's $459. I was previously considering the Honda 2000 on Amazon but this thing is less than 1/2 the cost. Seeing as how it's from Costco I can't NOT try it out and see if it fits our needs (and ears). If it doesn't work out it can easily go back to the store.
It should easily run our window unit A/C that's installed in the 154bh - but what I'm not sure of are two things:
1. Where should I store this thing when travelling with the trailer? I'm towing with a Honda Odyssey.
2. Where is the best place to place it when using it? Ideally I'd like to use a cable lock to secure it so no one runs off with it in the middle of the night... but I want to make sure it's in a safe location for running properly without being a hazard.
3. Where is the best place to store the plastic gas can (I think it's a 5 gallon) when travelling?
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. San Diego is going to be HOT and I'm originally from Buffalo so I'm looking forward to having A/C at all times.
