I commend you on changing to a two point attachment arrangement. Minimizing movement of the weight hanging off the back of the frame is critical to avoiding metal fatigue. Despite some comments about the designed weight limits for the OEM receivers,
any design that allows multiple G-forces to cycle on and off at a single point is bound to fail, probably with little warning.

I did one that I bring my generator with sometimes. Carried my old axles back home after the IS install at Elkhart. It didn't fall off driving up 131 in the LP.

I know this is an old thread but I didn’t won’t to start a new one.
Harbor Freight has their Predator generators on sale until January 26 at 20% off. That brings the 3500 down to $640. If anyone is interested.

Iím looking at buying a generator to carry with us when we travel. I was thinking about buying a dual fuel generator and buying a 30lb propane tank to have a third tank for the generator. Those that use gasoline, is it an issue to carry gasoline and how much gasoline do you carry for the generator?
Thanks
Steve

I bought a 60" wide folding hitch carrier at Home Depot.
Found out you can't fold it because the ladder is in the way.
You will need a hitch Stabilizer to take the left/right wobble out of it.

Steve,

I normally carry 2-3 gallons of gas with me. I primarily depend on solar.

There is another way to take the wobble out of it. The pin that attaches it to the hitch is 5/8 inch OD. Replace it with 5/8 bolt and put a 5/8 nut in the 2 inch tube tightening it down, no wobble. It will be as strong as the hitch and almost thief proof. A custom nut that won’t turn in the tube will work best.

Thanks. We don’t have solar, I think we’re going to go with the dual fuel generator for the flexibility
Thanks
