Commercial Portable Power Safety

Headed to the infield for a NASCAR weekend or to the stadium for the football game? Or taking the fifth wheel to your favorite boondocking location? You'll likely be bringing some portable power with you, perhaps one of the really quiet nicely powered inverter generators. These models are perfectly matched for your off-the-grid activities. They are compact and luggable, provide plenty of power, run for a long time and allow a reasonable conversation when they are even ten feet away. Weather doesn't always cooperate, however, so you need a way to keep your inverter generator safe from damage to run outdoors in wet weather. The last thing you want to do is run indoors or near your tent or camper because carbon monoxide kills.

The Consumer Products Safety Commmission and the Portable Generator Manufacturer's Association point out that inverter generators must always be used outdoors in order to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. But they also must not be used in wet weather, without the appropriate safety tent, due to the risk of electrocution and damage which can render it useless when you need it the most.

GenTent® is the only patented and weather proven product on the market today that both encourages outdoor inverter generator usage and ensures the generator is used in a way that electrocution and damage risks are minimized. Endorsed by portable generator makers, independently tested and referred by organizations such as Consumer Reports, the GenTent utilizes a self-attaching approach that allows the inverter generator to cool itself while the sensitive areas are kept dry. The inverter generator remains portable, easily movable, and access to refueling and other maintenance operations is not impeded.

With over 1500 different portable generator makes and models sold in the last decade, we still make it easy for you to find the perfect GenTent to fit your portable generator. Simply select your make and model from the selector above, or select ".Not Yet Listed" if you can't find yours and we'll figure it out for you.

Be prepared for your next trip; complete your off-grid generator kit with the GenTent, the best way to keep your generator safe to run in wet weather.
