Safety RulesRecreational Vehicle Generators SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS – The manufacturer suggests that these rules for safeoperation be copied and posted in potential hazard areas of the recreational vehicle.Safety should be stressed to all operators and potential operators of this equipment. WARNING: The engine exhaust from this productcontains chemicals known to the stateof California to cause cancer, birthdefects or other reproductive harm. WARNING: This product contains or emits chemicalsknown to the state of California to causecancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.Study these SAFETY RULES carefully before installing, operating or servicing this equipment. Becomefamiliar with this manual and with the unit. The generator can operate safely, efficiently and reliably onlyif it is properly installed, operated and maintained.Many accidents are caused by failing to follow simpleand fundamental rules or precautions.The manufacturer cannot anticipate every possiblecircumstance that might involve a hazard. The warnings in this manual, and on tags and decals affixedto the unit, are, therefore, not all-inclusive. If usinga procedure, work method or operating techniquethe manufacturer does not specifically recommend,ensure that it is safe for others. Also make sure theprocedure, work method or operating technique thatchosen does not render the generator unsafe.DANGERthe safe design of this generator, Despiteoperating this equipment imprudently, neglecting its maintenance or being careless can causepossible injury or death. Permit only responsibleand capable persons to operate or maintain thisequipment.lethal voltages are generated by Potentiallythese machines. Ensure all steps are taken torender the machine safe before attempting towork on the generator.of the generator are rotating and/or hot Partsduring operation. Exercise care near runninggenerators.2 GENERAL HAZARDS For safety reasons, the manufacturer recommendsthat the installation, initial start-up and maintenance of this equipment is carried out by anAuthorized Service Dealer. The generator engine releases DEADLY carbonmonoxide gas through its exhaust system. Thisdangerous gas, if breathed in sufficient concentrations, can cause unconsciousness or even death.Never operate the generator set with the vehicleinside any garage or other enclosed area. DO NOTOPERATE THE GENERATOR IF THE EXHAUSTSYSTEM IS LEAKING OR HAS BEEN DAMAGED.SYMPTOMS OF CARBON MONOXIDE POISONINGARE (a) inability to think coherently, (b) nausea,(c) vomiting, (d) twitching muscles, (e) throbbingtemples, (f) dizziness, (g) headaches, (h) weakness, and (i) sleepiness. IF EXPERIENCING ANYOF THESE SYMPTOMS, MOVE INTO FRESH AIRIMMEDIATELY. IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST, GETMEDICAL HELP. Shut down the generator anddo not operate it until it has been inspected andrepaired. Never sleep in the vehicle while the genset is running unless the vehicle has a working carbonmonoxide detector. The exhaust system must beinstalled in accordance with the genset installationmanual. Make sure there is ample fresh air whenoperating the genset in a confined area. Keep hands, feet, clothing, etc., away from drivebelts, fans, and other moving or hot parts. Neverremove any drive belt or fan guard while the unitis operating. Adequate, unobstructed flow of cooling and ventilating air is critical to correct generator operation and is required to expel toxic fumes and fuelvapors from the generator compartment. Withoutsufficient cooling airflow, the engine/generatorquickly overheats, which causes serious damageto the generator. Do not alter the installation orpermit even partial blockage of ventilation provisions, as this can seriously affect safe operation ofthe generator. When working on this equipment, remain alertat all times. Never work on the equipment whenphysically or mentally fatigued. Inspect the generator regularly, and contact thenearest Authorized Service Dealer immediately forparts needing repair or replacement.
Safety RulesRecreational Vehicle Generators Before performing any maintenance on the generator, disconnect its battery cables to preventaccidental start up. Disconnect the cable from thebattery post indicated by a NEGATIVE, NEG or (–)first. Reconnect that cable last. Never use the generator or any of its parts as astep. Stepping on the unit can stress and breakparts, and may result in dangerous operating conditions from leaking exhaust gases, fuel leakage,oil leakage, etc. ELECTRICAL HAZARDS The generator covered by this manual producesdangerous electrical voltages and can cause fatalelectrical shock. Avoid contact with bare wires, terminals, connections, etc., while the unit is running.Ensure all appropriate covers, guards and barriersare in place before operating the generator. If workmust be done around an operating unit, stand onan insulated, dry surface to reduce shock hazard. Do not handle any kind of electrical device whilestanding in water, while barefoot, or while hands orfeet are wet. DANGEROUS ELECTRICAL SHOCKMAY RESULT. During installation onto the vehicle, have thegenerator properly grounded (bonded) either bysolid mounting to the vehicle frame or chassis,or by means of an approved bonding conductor.DO NOT disconnect the bonding conductor, if soequipped. DO NOT reconnect the bonding conductor to any generator part that might be removed ordisassembled during routine maintenance. If thegrounding conductor must be replaced, use only aflexible conductor that is of No. 8 American WireGauge (AWG) copper wire minimum. In case of accident caused by electric shock, immediately shut down the source of electrical power.If this is not possible, attempt to free the victimfrom the live conductor. AVOID DIRECT CONTACTWITH THE VICTIM. Use a nonconducting implement, such as a rope or board, to free the victimfrom the live conductor. If the victim is unconscious, apply first aid and get immediate medicalhelp. Never wear jewelry when working on this equipment. Jewelry can conduct electricity resulting inelectric shock, or may get caught in moving components causing injury. FIRE HAZARDS For fire safety, the generator must be installedand maintained properly. Installation always mustcomply with applicable codes, standards, lawsand regulations. Adhere strictly to local, state andnational electrical and building codes. Complywith regulations the Occupational Safety andHealth Administration (OSHA) has established.Also, ensure that the generator is installed inaccordance with the manufacturer’s instructionsand recommendations. Following proper installation, do nothing that might alter a safe installationand render the unit in noncompliance with theaforementioned codes, standards, laws and regulations. Keep a fire extinguisher in the vehicle at all times.Extinguishers rated “ABC” by the National FireProtection Association are appropriate for use onthe recreational vehicle generator electrical system. Keep the extinguisher properly charged andbe familiar with its use. If there are any questionspertaining to fire extinguishers, consult the localfire department. EXPLOSION HAZARDS Do not smoke around the generator. Wipe up anyfuel or oil spills immediately. Ensure that no combustible materials are left in the generator compartment, or on or near the generator, as FIRE orEXPLOSION may result. Keep the area surrounding the generator clean and free from debris. Gasoline is extremely FLAMMABLE and its vaporsare EXPLOSIVE. Do not permit smoking, openflame, sparks or any source of heat in the vicinitywhile handling gasoline. Comply with all laws governing the storage and handling of gasoline. This generator may use liquid propane (LP) gasas a fuel. LP gas is highly EXPLOSIVE. The gas isheavier than air and tends to settle in low areaswhere even the slightest spark can ignite the gasand cause an explosion.3
