generator question

I am thinking of updating to a toy hauler in the future and have a question about the built in generators. How is the noise on the inside of the camper? Is it loud? and does it shake the camper? Thanks for the help.

There not bad. Problem is they are all located under the bedroom. I have used them a lot and no problems. If you don't use the fuel station often, I mean monthly, the pumps screw up. The fuel hoses are really cheap and turn the gas real dark sitting in them. Order fuel and oil filters off the www.

I was quite surprised with lack of felt vibration inside of my seismic . In my other toy haulers I had to install rubber isolators on generator to get vibration down to acceptable level . Not on this one . As for the noise , you can hear it , but have not found noise level to be annoying .

Noise and vibration are what I was worried about also. I was thinking of getting the built in Onan on the Octane 273. Decision was made for me when I found out it isnt an option on the Octane superlites. Now I'll get a Honda and mount it on the tongue rack. May be quieter than the Onan. I think 60 db at rated load for eu7000is. Less if I get two parallel eu3000is's.l
