Hey Everyone. New to the LQ world! My fiance and I just purchased a 2 Horse Shadow Weekender. See picture attached. The trailer has a king bed, slide out with couch, two stove top, kitchen sink, electric awning, shower, and separate toilet. I was looking for just general advice on things we might need for the trailer so far i have purchased:

1. 30ft 30 AMP cord
2. 50 AMP to 30 AMP Adapter
3. 20 AMP to 30 AMP Adapter
4. Fresh Water Hose
5. 10 Gauge 50FT 20 AMP Extension Cord (we plan to use this to plug into night before to get fridge cold before loading groceries then run off gas when in transit and maybe just run A/C when only have option for 20 plug in at events)
6. Big Gloves for dealing with black water and grey water.

What other items do you recommend that I'm not think of? Also any advice on generators? We are looking at Predator 3500 from Harbor Freight but have heard mixed reviews. We are looking for something good but not top of line (super expensive) but not bottom of the barrel. We would need it to run A/C, TV, Charge Phones/Laptops, Lights, Fridge would be nice but necessary we could use gas. Thank Everyone Look Forward to hearing replies

You also need a sewer hose....might already be there. Forget the Predator......go with a Honda or Yamaha...3000w or better. or maybe (2) 2000w and get the inverter type..much quieter and will last forever.

I briefly looked at the HF Predator gensets. There was a blurb somewhere in its manual that said running out of fuel when under load could damage it.

Would you confirm or deny this point ?

I've run my Honda inverter out of fuel while under load several times without damage.

I have read that about all generators. I think a small load wouldn't affect it but a heavy load might. My opinion is generally about most things that Harbor Freight sells in general.....cheap Chinese knock-offs.

You'll want to get a water pressure regulator and put it on the front end of your fresh water hose. Then leave it there. :)
