Question about Portable Generator

Will a portable generator with the following specs be able to power a surge protector with 700W running on it? I'd assume it would, but I've seen some reviews about the amps being low.

  • 2,000W peak / 1,500W continuous output
  • 4-stroke / 80cc EPA approved engine
  • Synchronized single phase brushless motor
  • Durable tubular steel frame with sock absorbing feet to absorb vibration
  • Up to 9 Hrs Run Time on 1 Tank of Gas at 50% Load
  • DC Output: 12V at 10Amp - Perfect for charging your Car, RV, Jetski or Boat battery

    Why won't my stanley 8000 generator put out power?

    You have to be missing a switch to turn on the power outlets once it is running. That or a breaker needs to be turned on.

    Have an fg5700ak runs ok but no power output what

    Typical diodes are 10 amp for these. The stator and rotor both have VERY low resistance readings. The reading typically will be below that which will register MEANINGFULLY on the digital meters.

    My generator had 10 amp diodes with surge protectors across them. One of the protectors shorted and generator output was zero. Mine is a 6KW diesel silent unit.

    Replaced the diodes with 70 amp ones with surge protectors that have 20 times the energy absorbtion as the originals. Unfortunately this required some lathe work to make holders for the diodes and the surge protectors to ride on the rotor.

    Used the light bulb trick to remagnitize it once diodes were replaced.

    Portable generator pops breaker when temp is over 75 degrees

    I take it you have RV plugged into generator. Hopefully direct with no extension cords. Are you using a 30 to 15 amp adapter to plug into generator? What is the rating of the breaker on the generator that keeps tripping, suspect it's only 15 amp?

    The carburetor is probably clogged up. Mix a bottle of carburetor cleaner with the gas to see if that would help. Also check/replace the fuel filter.
