38 • RV PRO • March 2020 rv-pro.com When looking for a portable power source, most RVers keep an eye out for weight, noise and efficiency. With Onan's new line of inverter generators, put down three checkmarks. The P2500i, P4500i and P9500df all check in at under 200 pounds, produce sound ranging from 52 decibels for the smallest unit to 74 decibels for the largest and are easy on the fuel con- sumption. Each model also includes USB ports for quick charging of electronic devices. "With them being inverter-based, they are pure sine wave," says John Giegerich, account executive for power generation with Cummins. "Sensitive electronics are perfectly fine to be plugged into one of these." At the Land 'N' Sea show in Las Vegas, Giegerich reported brisk sales on the smaller two models, but also said he was sur- prised to have sold a handful of the largest model, considering he didn't have a display model for that one at the show. The smallest model is 3.4 horsepower with a four-stroke vari- able speed engine. The medium unit is 7.3 horsepower and the big boy is 13 horsepower. The P2400i is light enough at 48 pounds that it can be carried with a handle. The P4500i has two wheels and a suitcase-like handle that can extend or be put away when not needed. It weighs 98 pounds. The full-sized P9500df checks in at 194 pounds. P2500i offers 2,500 peak watts, P4500i has 4,500 peak watts and P9500df, which can run on propane or gas, has 9,500 peak watts using gas or 8,550 using propane. All three models feature an LED display with precise readings that let the user know how much fuel is remaining, the percent of power output, fuel level, voltage and lifetime run hours. Each model has push-button and remote start capability with a pull- cord backup. They all also have covered outlets to keep dust and dirt from getting inside. What impressed RV PRO: The three models of the new Onan product range from lightweight and easily carryable to heavy-duty and portable on wheels. But the thing they have in common is their fuel efficiency. Depending on the RVer's needs, the P2500i for example, can operate on a 1-gallon fuel tank for 10 hours if it is only being used at a 25 percent load. The P4500i's 3.4-gallon tank will last 18 hours at the same load. Add to that the fact that the devices contain both an inverter and a generator, and the smart-shopping RVer is sure to find an economical way to power his electronics on the road. They also produce pure sine wave power suitable for charging sensitive electronic devices. The Cummins P2500i, P4500i and P9500df all check in at under 200 pounds, produce sound ranging from 52 decibels for the smallest unit to 74 decibels for the largest and are easy on the fuel consumption. Each model also includes USB ports for quick charging of electronic devices. Cummins Onan Digital Inverter Portable Generators
