High-Output Capacity

e4500R outlets

The e4500R etrailer generator produces 4,500 watts of power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, at the worksite, or faced with an emergency. This powerful generator comes with (2) 120V outlets for powering household appliances, tools, and electronic devices. It features (1) 120V L5-30R twist-lock outlet for large appliances and motorized tools with greater electrical demands. Lastly, it has (1) 120V TT-30R RV outlet, ensuring you'll have access to electricity no matter where you take your RV or if there's a power outage at the campground. The generator also has outlet covers to help keep out moisture and debris.

Easy Remote Start Engine

e3200R remote control

The generator's engine starts up easily using the remote. Simply turn the fuel valve to "on" and flip the engine switch to the "run" position. Then, push the battery power restore switch for a few seconds and release. At the push of a button, the generator will turn on.

Before starting your generator, ensure nothing is connected to the outlets. Start your generator and let the engine run for a few minutes to warm up and stabilize. Once the generator is up and running, follow the recommended order of operation: connect the device with the highest starting watts first, like your air conditioner or refrigerator, then work your way down to the device with the lowest starting watts. By connecting devices in this order, you'll ensure the generator has enough power to start high-wattage loads.

Safety Features

This generator comes with a number of safety features to protect you, the environment, and the generator itself. When the generator is low on oil, a light-up indicator in Data-Minder turns on and the engine will automatically shut down to prevent damage. If an overload is detected, either by exceeding the generator's limits or a power surge, the circuit breaker will stop supplying power to the connected devices. The digital voltage regulator assists in minimizing voltage fluctuations which helps to maintain a steady flow of electricity. Also, a built-in spark arrestor helps prevent any sparking that might burn someone or start a fire. This arrestor has been certified by the USDA Forest Service.

Choosing a Generator

When choosing a generator, you need to match the generator's starting and running output with the electrical demands of the equipment you want to operate.

Power Demands

Starting (surge) wattage is the power a device requires at startup. Running (rated) wattage is the power needed to keep the device running. A large appliance with an electric motor such as a furnace, refrigerator, air conditioner, or washing machine may require 2 to 3 times more starting wattage than running wattage.

It is always best to start your generator with no load connected, then add each device one at a time. Additionally, a good practice to consider is connecting your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. As you connect and start devices, your available wattage decreases. This order of operation allows you to start devices with the highest power demands when there is more power available.

Will This Generator Run My RV Air Conditioner?

At etrailer, we perform numerous tests on generators that put them through real-world experience. An extensive part of this testing includes starting and running RV air conditioners. The following table will help you decide if the e3200 inverter generator has enough power to handle this critical function in your RV.

* The starting wattage on air conditioners can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the assistance of built-in capacitors and cold starts. Because of this, we can't list a standard starting wattage as every application can be different.

Determining Your Power Needs

The following section provides calculations for wattage estimates. This will give you an overall picture of your potential power usage and help you decide on the generator that is right for you.

Industry Standard Calculation

The Industry Standard Calculation is a quick and easy way to determine your required wattage. It may provide some padding in your wattage requirements, which could give you more power than you actually need, but you shouldn't have to worry about not having enough power. The following steps will help you quickly calculate the correct size generator to meet your application.

As stated earlier, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation requires this approach to work. However, using this calculation removes the worry of connecting devices in a certain order.

1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for the devices that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List all of your starting watts and running watts as seen in Table 1 below.

Table 1

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air compressor2,0001,000

2. To find the total starting watts required, add the starting watts for the device with the highest value to the running watts of all the other devices from Table 1.

2,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 4,200 total starting watts

3. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 1.

1,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 3,200 total running watts

To run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 4,200 starting watts and 3,200 running watts.

Advanced, Precise Calculation

While the method for calculating your power needs outlined above will work, it isn't the most precise. If you aren't afraid of doing a little more math, you can use the Advanced, Precise Calculation to get a more accurate idea of how much power you will need and potentially save yourself some money. Because the calculation above pads in enough power to ensure you can start your devices in any order, it may point you to a bigger and more expensive generator than you need. However, by following the more regimented, order-of-operations calculation below, you'll get a much more precise idea of how much power you need, which could in turn point you to a smaller and less expensive generator.

Again, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation also requires that you start your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. When you connect devices in this order, you can start high demand devices when there is more power available.

1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List out these devices from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts as seen in Table 2 below.

Table 2

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air compressor2,0001,000

2. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 2.

1,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 3,200 total running watts

3. In Table 3, shown below, the values from Table 2 are used to calculate the highest total starting watts required as devices are connected and running. This number represents the highest power requirement you will encounter as you connect all of your devices to the generator. To find this, add the starting watts of each new device you connect to the combined running watts of all connected devices. The highest of these numbers will be the total starting watts required. And again, remember to always connect devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts.

Table 3

DeviceStarting WattsRunning Watts of All Connected DevicesTotal Starting Watts Required
1. Air compressor2,000 +0 (nothing connected)= 2,000
2. Refrigerator1,600 +1,000 (air compressor)= 2,600
3. Microwave1,000* +1,800 (air compressor + refrigerator)= 2,800
4. Blender850 +2,800 (air compressor + refrigerator + microwave)= 3,650

* Even though the microwave does not have starting watts listed, you have to account for the power needed to actually run it.

850 + 2,800 = 3,650 highest total starting watts required

In order to run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 3,650 starting watts and 3,200 running watts.

I like the generator, but sill trying to get the bent fuel tank peacock to stop leaking. All my gas is dripping out on the ground. Bummed about the fact I'm wasting expensive gasoline

I spoke to the manufacturer and if the petcock is bent it can be replaced. The manufacturer will be able to ship you a replacement part.

After what felt like an eternity of research my hunting buddy and I both purchased one of these units to run the campers at our lease. Within 80 hours of use the remote and front panel start were no longer working so I was forced to use the pull cord. I was disappointed because the remote start feature is what appealed to me most about this product. I reached out to etrailer customer support first who not able to provide any support. Instead, I was provided with a phone number for the manufacturer. After speaking with a manufacturers representative, it was determined that the unit would need to be replaced under warranty. Fine, but with etrailer that means you put the generator in a box, pay to ship it back, and then they determine to repair or replace. I don't typically keep boxes and shipping materials around my house for taking a generator to the post office! So I was forced to purchase a new unit, which arrived in a box that I'm not sure is even reusable. I am just hopeful this new unit works as well as I originally expected. FYI, the starter just went out on my buddy's generator last weekend...

Garbage...its stop working (because of burning fire from electrical parts) after 2 months, oil regulary replaced, carburetor cleaning...

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The generator does have a 2 year limited warranty for residential use and 180-Day limited warranty for commercial use. I do have another generator to offer that also has a starting watt capacity of 4500 pounds. It is part # 289-SUA4500

I owned a firman I purchased at [super store]. Loved it, I gave it away. I tried to purchase another one and sold out. Tried online the price was almost doubled. This is the exact generator as the firman made for etrailer, same remote, engine, electrical. For a fraction of the new firman. Fast shipping top notch Cust service. The remote starting is priceless, and quiet when you need power at a touch of a button I am happy camper

That’s great so far! Arrived on time and shipping was great. I ended up seeing this on sale and during this time I was trying to find a wheel kit for my open frame generator and unfortunately I bought the only one from that brand that did not have a wheel kit.. We have power outages a lot due to the fires in our state. So this will continue to help. Having the convenience of the wheel kit now, more gasoline, automatic start and a beer opener is Having the convenience of the wheel kit now, more gasoline, automatic start and a beverage opener helps!! Assembling only took about 25 minutes and I hooked it up to my travel trailer and it worked great! Thanks

- 333-0004

Arrived quickly and as advertised. Nice quality unit runs my camper AC, TV, laptop, fridge and microwave with plenty of wattage to spare. Great Value! Thanks!

Perfect! Love the remote start. The wheel kit is a little beat up but I’ll own that due to the mtn terrain abuse.

Great Product, Great Price, Super Fast Shipping and Excellent Customer Service. Who can ask for more. Thank you!

- 333-0004

This generator is great!! No getting dressed and stomping out in the cold rain to start the generator! I love camping with all my buddies and then looking out the window and saying “watch this” as they are pulling on the cord in the rain I simply press the start button!! Fires right up and powers everything in my camper!

- 333-0004

I have to say so far I'm very happy. I was extremely happy with how quickly my generator was shipped to me. Its very well made and I have no doubt it will be a great investment if ever needed. I haven't had to use it yet and I very happy now to have peace of mind knowing I have an etrailer if my power goes out. Thank you etrailer.

It works great. Im very happy that I bought it.

So far so good! I have owned this generator for a year and it still works great. I mounted mine permanently on the backrack of my RV so that I can run my refrigerator and air conditioning while I travel. It starts great every time and I would recommend it.

- 333-0004

I have never had to deal wiiht a generator before. But tackled putting this one together and started it up first time. Ran like a champ when needed. The remote feature is pretty sweet and works through a window screen so I didn't even have to go outside to fire it up!

Adam was very helpful in getting us the right product. I got the generator Saturday after placing the order on Wednesday. It was easy assembly and I fired it up today on the first try. Awesome service!

- 333-0004

I'm first to review this product, which means I didn't have anything to read before purchasing. I really wasn't worried about it because etrailer is consistently awesome. I have to say that Bread financing is a good move for etrailer. They're the real reason I made this purchase. Shipping estimated a 5 business day ship, but there was a delayed UPS truck and it took 6. Not bad at all. It came styrofoam packed and intact and the setup video tutorial was easy to follow. I removed the shipping brackets, installed the wheels, attached the handle, attached the battery negative, poured in the oil, gassed it up, flipped on the engine switch, battery switch, and fuel switch, set the choke to start, ran to the other side of the property, and held the remote start for 3 seconds. It started up like a dream first crank and was surprisingly quiet from about 100'. I grabbed the 25' extension cord from my solar generator's inverter and plugged it into the 15 amp outlet on this generator. That ran into the tent to a surge protector for lights and all kinds of chargers. Now I'll be able to run my 600/900/1500 watt portable heater fan through the winter and won't even have to go out into the cold to start the generator. I also plugged in my 3 amp Battery Tender to my deep cycle for a little boost. This generator is definitely worth it, and with Bread offering to finance the purchase for about 25 bucks a month, there really wasn't an excuse not to get this. I would take pictures, but etrailer has better.

I placed my order for the 4500 watt gas operated with remote start generator on the 1st of the month and received it four days later with free shipping. It shipped from Missouri to Vermont......beat that [online store]!!!! The box was a little ragged but the generator was in perfect condition. Once the outside temperature gets above 20 degrees I'll assemble it and try it out by running my camper off of it. No doubt it will work perfectly. So based on everything so far I give etrailer 5 stars

- 333-0004

I love this little generator! Very quiet. Ran it for 3 full days and only used 25 gallons of fuel, running the A/C the entire time.

We currently own the 4,500-Watt Portable RV Generator - 3,600 Running Watts - Propane or Gas - Electric Start (Item # 333-0005) for our travel trailer. With Hurricane Laura passing through Louisiana it really put this generator to this test. It passed with flying colors both running my travel trailer and one appliance in the house, To take a lot of the load off of this one, I ordered this model, 4,500-Watt Portable Generator - 3,600 Running Watts - Gas - Remote Start Item #333-0004. We received the item yesterday afternoon via UPS. Assembly was great and instructions were easy to understand. Fueled and oiled it up, and tried all three options (remote, push start, pull cord) to start it with little or no hesitation. The easy choke is a nice feature, by pushing it to start and it automatically adjust. There is another nice feature having an onboard bottle opener on the back. I would recommend Item # 333-0008, Storage Cover for etrailer 4,500-Watt Generator - Weather Resistant.

- 333-0004

Excellent response time. 3 days from ordering to receiving the generator. the generator was easy to set up, with excellent instructions on line and with the product. the generator started on the first pull. It also started with the remote and electric start with no problems.

- 333-0004

Ordering was simple and painless. Items arrived right on the date shown when ordered. Got here a day before our power (CA) was to be turned off due to fire dangers. Assembly was minimal and generator started right up. etrailer has quality products and great service.

- 333-0004

Honestly I haven't even opened them yet but I would like to rain praise all over e trailers customer service young man I spoke with was very helpful at working around me ordering the two generators but I was purchasing I expected them to come separately but they showed up very quickly together which was very nice. And then a week or so later I received the covers for my generator which I haven't opened either LOL. But overall my experience with etrailer has been amazing I would recommend them to anybody, the delivery man brought them all the way in to the storage area which I thought was very helpful also. A++ rating.

  • Starting Watt Power of etrailer 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator
    The etrailer 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0003 has a starting power output of 3,200 watts and a 13,500 btu air conditioner commonly needs 3,800 watts of starting power. So you would need to use the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0004 instead, which offers 4,500 watts of starting power.

  • Will Replacement Remote for etrailer Generator Work with Firman Generator
    The Replacement Remote Control for etrailer 4,500-Watt Generator and 3,200-Watt Inverter # 333-336713641 will work for your Firman generator, assuming your generator had a remote control start. This remote is a direct replacement for the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0004 but will work for your generator. I've added a link to a video review of the remote for you to take a look at.

  • Total Harmonic Distortion of etrailer 4,500 Watt Portable Generator
    The etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator - 3,600 Running Watts - Gas - Remote Start # 333-0004 has a standard total harmonic distortion of about 25 percent. For something with less THD you would need an inverter generator such as the etrailer 3,200-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 2,900 Running Watts - Gas - Remote Start # 333-0003. I have added links below to video reviews of these generators for you to take a look at.

  • Can Brand 333-0004 Generator Be Ran in the Rain
    Firman manufactures the etrailer branded # 333-0004 exclusively for us, so they aren't available anywhere else. The closest Firman model would be number P03612 which has a 50 watt higher output and is cosmetically a little different. To see a Firman P03612 you could Google 'Firman Generator Dealers' and look for one in your area. The generator does indeed deliver a trickle charge to the start battery while it's running. It is not recommended to use the # 333-0008 storage cover while the...

  • Does Generator # 333-0005 Require Break in Period
    You do not have to break in the 4,500-Watt generator part # 333-0005 that you referenced as it's ready to go as soon as you receive it without requiring a break in phase. Only thing close to that worth mentioning is that the first oil change should happen at 25 hours of use whereas after that you can get away with every 100 hours. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Difference Between Generators With or Without an Inverter
    The difference between a generator that has an inverter, like part # 333-0003, and a generator that doesn't have an inverter, like part # 333-0004, is that the inverter makes it so that the generator can supply power for both AC and DC applications. Generators without the inverter can only supply AC power (like for typical household use). The inverter generators also tend to provide cleaner power and are a little lighter as well. The generators with built-in inverters are extremely useful...

  • Best Size Generator for Coleman Mach 10RV Air Conditioner
    I spoke with Firman who is an industry leader in generators and the OEM of our etrailer line. They recommended using the BTU rating of 13,500 and multiplying this by .3 to get the starting watt requirements. Therefore, I recommend the 4,500-Watt Portable Generator part # 333-0004. Please keep in mind that the Coleman Mach 10 has a heat pump so the power requirements are much higher than most other standard RV air conditioners.

  • Is 4,500 Watt etrailer Portable Generator Easy to Handle
    The 4,500 Watt Portable Generator # 333-0004 has a number of features that do make it easier to handle than other generators. It has a remote start so you just have to push a button to get it going, it has wheels to maneuver it as well as handles that allow you to push or pull it along. That said, generators are pretty heavy by nature, with this one weighing 119 lbs. While I wouldn't want to assume to know anybody's strength capability, I'm pretty confident that because of the generator's...

  • Could High Altitude Jets be Used in 4,500 Watt RV Generator at Lower Altitudes
    You'll have to match the jets with the elevation you plan to use the etrailer generator part # 333-0004 in. If there was one jet kit that would work in higher and lower elevations we would have installed it in the generator, but the reality is that with elevation changes there is also a large change in air density so you have to have the correct jets to allow the engine of the generator to function properly. At higher altitudes the air is thinner so you need jets that allow more air into...

  • How to Determine Generator Needed for Two RV Air Conditioners
    The right generator depends on the starting and running watts of your two air conditioners, and if they have a start capacitor. For a 13,500 btu and 15,000 btu AC you are very likely to be looking at less than 4,000 running watts but you will also need extra capacity for other appliances. Due to that I recommend the 6,000-Watt Portable RV Inverter Generators - 5,500 Running Watts # 333-0003-2-0007. This will give you extra room for power so you can use something other than just your AC....

  • Two Generators That Can be Run In Parallel
    We do have generators with parallel capability, though the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0004 does not. What you will need is the etrailer 6,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generators - 5,500 Running Watts - Parallel Kit # 333-0003-2-0007 which has a starting watt output of 6,000 watts and running watts of 5,500 watts, which is the highest-rated parallel kit we offer. I have added a link to a video review of these generators for you to check out.

  • Compatibility of Generator and Transfer Switch with Electronics
    The 4,500-Watt Portable Generator - 3,600 Running Watts - Gas - Remote Start # 333-0004 is a great option at a great price for many uses. You should not directly plug in any electronics to this generator because it doesn't have the inverter so just using a transfer switch without an inverter is not recommended. Connecting to power after a circuit breaker is recommended to protect your devices. If you add a transfer switch with integrated inverter like the Progressive Dynamics Pure Sine...

  • Is 2,000 Watt Generator Enough to Power 5th Wheel Trailer Appliances
    Is your generator 2,000 running watts or 2,000 starting watts? Either way, that's a pretty low amount and I would think that you would need more. I have added a couple cut outs from the linked help article on generators which shows some of the common appliance power usage as well as how to determine exactly how much power your generator will need to be. Should you need more power, as I suspect you likely will, there are a couple of good options that don't have to break the bank, depending...
