Generator protection

Generators belong outdoors.

Keep your generator dry.

Point exhaust away from living spaces.

Please remember to take your generator inside or lock it to something when not at home. We use a generator at our property in Meigs county for camping and always keep it chained to something or otherwise they tend to grow legs and walk away.

Long time reader,have read you blog from start to present.First welcome to Ohio.Second you better tie that generator down reaaaal well.Not just a chain through the handle they will saw the handle into to get it.Maybe two anchors in the ground and a tight chain over the top of the generator.Not trying to scare you but but they are a popular item.Hope you like it here.
