utility power and must comply with all
applicable laws and electrical codes.

• Make sure the generator can supply enough continuous (running) and surge (starting) watts for the items you
will power at the same time. See page 11 for how to calculate total amount of power needed.
• Start the generator with nothing connected.
• Plug in and turn on the first load, preferably the largest load you have.
• Permit the generator output to stabilize (engine runs smoothly and attached device operates properly).
• Plug in and turn on the next load.
• Again, permit the generator to stabilize.
• Repeat previous two steps for each additional load.
IMPORTANT: Never add more loads than the generator capacity. Take special care to consider surge loads in
generator capacity. (See pages 10-11.)
