    Generator in a Reflection 150

    Is the front exterior storage area behind the pin, set up to take a generator. I've not seen it mentioned anywhere on here or in videos from GD. Either the 260RK, 280RS or 295R, thank you.

    We dont keep a generator in ours, but we do put our 16k grain water softner there plumbed to our city water intake line. So it can hold weight.

    Not sure about the available space and how much weight I would store there. Our fillled softner probably weighs 80lbs. Plus, we do secure it to the shared basement wall with a metal plate and clamps to ensure it doesnt move in transit.

    No, it is not prepped on any Reflection.

    The front compartment is not deep enough for anything but maybe a 4k Onan, which will only power 1 leg of your 50 amp service.

    The front compartment is amply sized for 600 AH or more of lithium batteries and all the other goodies to give you a robust solar setup; might not need a generator.

    That's a thought, thank you.

    Other than the trailer hitch at the back of the 150, any thoughts on where one might secure a generator?

    From what I can see, unless I want to go with a travel trailer or a full size Reflection (can you put a generator in the regular Reflection?) or Solitude, I won't be carrying a generator.

    Will it fit in the bed of the truck?


    We've done custom wiring to run from the bed of the truck back into the coach to run a/c on the road for pets.

    Good question. I don't have a truck with a 5th wheel hitch yet, so I don't know if a generator will fit in the back of a truck with a 5th wheel hitch, I kind if doubt it, unless it's an 8ft bed; maybe???
