Portable Generator Owner’s Manual
DANGER! This generator is designed for outdoor use only. Never use this generator inside any building
or enclosure including the generator compartment of a recreational vehicle (RV). Carbon monoxide
poisoning, fire and/or an explosion may result. No user performed modifications, including venting of
exhaust and/or cooling ventilation, will eliminate the danger. Always have at least two feet of clearance on
all sides of the generator while operating the unit outdoors.
DANGER! You must isolate the generator from the electric utility by opening the electrical systems main
circuit breaker or main switch if this unit is used for backup power. Failure to isolate the generator from
the power utility may result in injury or death to electric utility workers and damage to the
generator due to a backfeed of electrical energy.
The Emission Control System for this generator is warranted for standards set by the
Environmental Protection Agency. For warranty information refer to the engine owners manual.
