This section of the GenTent website contains Adobe PDF documents for the GenTent 10k and 20k product installation and safety guide as well as individual installation guides for our frame adaptation kits. We also include certain addendums for installation on particular generators. Adobe Reader is required to read and/or print these documents. The latest Adobe Reader is avialable here.
The GenTent installs in three easy steps***:
Clamp it: Install 4
clamps and set the telescoping rod length.
Frame it: Install
frame rod to the center connector, then into the correct hole in the
telescoping rod and repeat.
Cover it: Slide the
GenTent canopy over the frame and secure by sliding the elastic straps over and
behind the clamp telescoping rod.
Once the GenTent is installed, it can be left in place during generator storage
or easily removed and stored separately.
Should you wish to store the generator with the GenTent attached, we
recommend releasing the elastic straps in order to keep them fresh and ready.
In some cases adaptation of the portable generator frame is required to
create a proper mounting point for the GenTent clamps. Should your kit include a frame extender or
frame adapter package (GTX, GTU, GTR), please follow the instructions for
installation of the frame extender(s) or frame adapter(s) prior to installing
the GenTent. Frame adaptation is generally required when:
- A muffler heat shield or other
panel is connected to a frame member that otherwise blocks the GenTent clamp
from attaching directly to the proper location.
- The portable generator uses a
square tubular frame that must be adapted to the round openings of the GenTent
- The portable generator is a very
small frame and requires length and width extension.
- In special cases where the frame
does not provide 4 cornered mounting points such as:
Ridgid RD series generators (except
certain 5700W models) which do not have vertical frame members at the front of
Generac GP15000/GP17500 where the
fixed handles block the canopy
Certain other odd shaped frames
such as the Briggs 01894 and Troy-Bilt 01925
