Will etrailer Generator Run if it is Low on Oil

Question:

Say I got the generator and right away we had a bad storm and I couldnt change the oil after the first 25 hours. Would I be able to continue to run it till I could change the oil or no? Would a service technician have to change the oil? Is it hard to do-I have no mechanical skills.

That's a good question; the 4,500-Watt Portable RV Generator # 333-0005 would not be able to run if the oil drops below a preset level, as indicated in the cut out of the linked installation instructions. There is an oil switch which will actually stop the engine on the generator from running until the oil level is corrected. If this happens then yes, a service technician would have to be called.

That said, adding oil to this generator is extremely easy, no matter what your mechanical skill level might be. I'm confident you can do it, as you just pour oil into the generator with a funnel.

I've added a link to a video review of the 4,500 Watt Generator # 333-0005 for you to check out as well.
