Mines in the bed of my truck when it isn't being used. I usually only use it a race tracks and then it is chained to my front a-frame where it lives for the extended weekend. It's sheer weight, the chain, and the fact that there is an entire stocked bar and several coolers of beer act as great deterrents.

I was thinking the same thing. Have 174bh. Towing w/SUV so it will need to go inside. I bought a cable w/lock to attach to something but now I am concerned someone will try to steal. I need to be able to keep plugged in and outside while keeping it secure at the same time. Any Ideas? I want to be able to leave camp spot without unhooking my generator. Love this site as everyone is so helpful.

I use my heavy duty tow chains to secure my Yamaha generator. The weakest link is my lock for sure, I'm not too worried, really a lock only keeps a good guy honest, a thief will destroy whatever barriers you try to put in place.

When traveling they go in the thru storage under the bed. I have to tip it sideways to get it in, but once inside it sits upright.

I carry my 2000i in the front storage compartment of my Eagle. It is sealed from the rest and vented thru the bottom. If I had a factory genny, that is where it would be installed.
In the attached pic, It sits on the ground near the rig while I was broke down for almost 24 hours in a rest area. I turned it off and stored it when I went to sleep.

My two Honda E2000i generators and extra gasoline are stored in separate tubs in the bed of my pickup.

My pickup has a cap on it to protect everything from growing legs and running away and for protection from the weather elements, particularly rain.

I also carry an air compressor in the bed of the pickup, along with any needed ramps, blocks, and my dump equipment which is in a separate tub that has a lid.

With my new 23RB, I anticipate moving all the ramps, blocks and dump equipment to the large storage compartment in the rear on the curbside.

Do you put your gen, gas, & compressor way up front in your truck bed? I have a 2011 F150 SCrew, 5.0, 6.5 bed w/ camper cap, pulling a 2010 Jay Flight 22FB. Just now setting it up for longer trips. Haven't been to scale yet, but trying my best to simulate travel loading before scaling. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Yep...
All of my heavy gear that is in the truck bed is as close to the cab as possible. I load from front to back, heaviest to lightest. The rear axle has enough to worry about. With my 150, the back half of my bed was basically empty. Will follow the same approach with my new one.

We've got a cap. The genny goes with us (Honda2000) if we leave camp the cap is locked and the windows dark.

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

When I had a F150 w/ 6.5' box, I put my air compressor far forward in the bed as possible. I use those temporary cement mixing black trays to keep stuff in. They are easy to slide around, and in the case of gasoline that might seep out on a hot day, it's contained within one of those tubs.

I usually have another tub with stuff I don't use often forward also.

I have a tub that I keep 2 generators in, and another tub that I keep the extended run tank plus 3 2.5 gal cans of gasoline. They are always in series, one or the other over the axles and the other at the very end.

I have one last tub that holds a large container that I kept my sewer stuff, like slinky stinky, etc. I like this tub and the gas and generator tubs close to the rear of the bed since I use them very often.

Good thing is, I will not put one tub of stuff, the sewer things plus ramps, blocks etc in the rear curbside storage bay on the 23RB. That's stuff I no longer have to keep in the bed of the truck.

I have a Stromberg Carlson Trailer Tray. I store my genset on the tongue of my RV over the propane tanks.
