Just something else to think about.

We had Onan gasoline powered generators on our pumpers and rescue trucks at my former job. We had remote starts in the cab. We would start it a mile down the road for lighting to do our work. Never had a problem with exhaust problems even with the compartment doors closed.
You have to check the generator, especially crossing a few states, we use a swift hitch SH02 wireless camera to watch ours.

I have an Onan running on my trailer if I have fresh in the fridge. The chest freezer will keep for days. I leave a light on that is powered by the generator, in view of my mirrors, so I know if it is stopped..I also pack frozen in the fresh part of fridge so I dont have to run. I only run on hot days or on long trips of over 1 hour. Or if possible just pack the igloo with ice then move to fridge..I try to do this with chicken, because 200 or 400 1/2s get messy. I was thinking of just getting a little Honda to run the fridge only, that draws about 8 to 10 amps...
About the guys that lost the elk meat, I cant beleive they did not check such a treasure when they pulled off at a rest site or fueling up. I am so nervous every stop things are looked at and they must have started off with the meat just loaded into the freezer...I bet that wont happen again..

OK so it has been a while since I last posted here. One, because the semester started, and it got pretty busy. However, to shed some light on my endeavors I have just put a down payment on a Shirley Fabrication Smoker. I have also began looking into a couple of businesses in my area, which assist start-ups. One company is an incubator, and allows me to have an office and access to a conference room and classroom at an affordable rate. Another business I am dealing with is a commercial kitchen in which I am meeting with Monday to go over the possibilities of me renting space. I am a little anxious to get this ball rolling, but am excited to see how it all pans out.
