Good generator

published

Bought this generator from Outbax Camping about a year ago and so far has proven to be easy to start and very reliable. We use it for a couple of hours every couple of weeks and hasn't skipped a beat. The only thing better than the generator was the service from Outbax themselves. Cheers Guys and Girls!

How to start gentrax by the remote

2 answers

Hi Leigh,

In order to remote start the generator make sure that normal key start does work, this will check that the start battery is connected and charged. The manual makes no mention that the end user has to connect the battery.. The key must be on in order for remote start to work. Check battery in remote, two remote controls should have been supplied, Press start button on remote twice, on the second press you should here the generator crank and start. Please note that if the key is left on and the generator is not used or started for any length of time, the battery will go flat but for normal camping or short term intermittent use this is not a problem. This is one area where the design could be better. I have owned one of these generators for a few years now and i can say it so far has not let me down. I have found it pays to give it a run at least once a month if you think it is not going to be run for some time.

Thanks for the tips Laurie. The manual is a bit shy of knowledge when it comes to starting it with the key or the remote. Especially if it is one of its' features.

I have flattened the battery and can’t start my Gentrax 2.5 kva. How do I charge the battery, I can’t seem to pull start it either. I’m not very strong.

Hi Tami,

Recharge of the battery is quite easy if you have or can borrow a automotive type battery charger. All you need to do is to open the battery compartment, disconnect the red positive lead from the battery and connect the battery charger to the battery terminals. The battery should take about 2 to 6 hours to fully charge. Reconnect the battery positive lead and it should be right to go. The generator does charge the battery automatically but it does require many hours of continuous operation to fully charge it.

Gentrax 3.5kW Remote Start Camping Inverter has anybody in Australia looked into LP Bottled Gas conversion, thanks, this looks easy https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4k6Nq63I_Y4

Hi Milt,
I have not looked into this myself but unless a proper conversion kit were available from the manufacturer, and I doubt if that would be the case with the Gentrax, it would not be cost effective to convert to LPG. There may be other issues as well if the engine is not designed to run with LPG. I can say that the generator has not missed a beat so far and has always done the job when needed.

Regards

Laurie

Thanks Laurie, yes all good advice, but see there’s a simple solution...unless when, if you don’t want your air cleaner assembly exploded by a backfire https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4k6Nq63I_Y4 good to hear yours has been going good thanks
