You
must
make
sure
your
generator
can supply
enough
rated
(running)
and
surge
(starting)
watts
for
the
items
you
will
power
at the
same
time.
Follow
these
simple
steps:
I.
Select
the
items
you
will
power
at
the
same
time.
2.
Total
the
rated
(running)
watts
of
these
items.This
is
the
amount
of
power
your
generator
must
produce
to
keep
your
items
running.
See
Figure
8.
3.
Estimate
how
many
surge
(starting)
watts
you
wiil
need.
Surge
wattage
is the
short
burst
of
power
needed
to
start
electric
motor-driven
tools
or
appliances
such
as
a
circular
saw
or
refrigerator.
Because
not
ail
motors
start
at
the
same
time+
total
surge
watts
can
be
estimated
by
adding
only
the
item(s)
with
the
highest
additional
surge
watts
to
the
total
rated
watts
from
step
2.

Management
To prolong
the
life
of
your
generator
and
attached
devices,
it
is important
to
take
care
when
adding
electrical
loads
to
your
generator.There
should
be
nothing
connected
to
the
generator
oudets
before
starting
it's
engine.The
correct
and
safe
way
to
manage
generator
power
is to
sequentially
add
loads
as follows:
I.
With
nothing
connected
to the
generator,
start
the
engine as described
in this manual.
:2.
Plug
in and
turn
on
the
first
load,
preferably
the
largest
load
you
have.
3.
Permit
the
generator
output
to
stabilize
(engine
runs
smoothly
and
attached
device
operates
properly.
4.
Plug in and
turn
on the
next
load.
5.
Again+ permit
the
generator
to
stabilize.
6.
Repeat
steps
4 and
5 for
each
additional
load.
NEVER
add
more
loads
than
the
generator
capacity.Take
special
care
to
consider
surge
loads
in generator
capacity,
as
described
above.
