Colorado Standby has over 20 years of experience installing and servicing generators for every application! Our certified Generator Technicians are here to answer all of your RV generator install questions:
In order to determine the true estimate of your RV generator installation, we will first need to complete a visual inspection of your generator ready vehicle. If you are not sure if your vehicle qualifies as generator ready, please see below for more information or call 866-888-6111 to speak to a technician. Here are a few things you will need for the inspection prior to an RV generator installation:
You will need to bring your RV or Commercial Mobile vehicle to our shop, located at 720 Seedling Court, Colorado Springs, CO 80915. If you are unable to do this, we will send a technician to you, but availability will be limited.
If you have already purchased your RV Generator, we ask that you bring it to the inspection as well. If you have not purchased your RV Generator, click here to browse our selection of Cummins Onan RV/Commercial Mobile Generators.
An RV or Commercial Mobile vehicle that is considered "generator ready" or "generator prepped" varies per your vehicle, however, it usually means that there is a built-in compartment for your generator and some preliminary wiring has been installed to connect to items like an inverter, battery, or automatic transfer switch. Many 5th Wheels are advertised as "generator ready" and are prepped for generators while being built at the factory. There, the factory adds all the necessary wiring, control panels (most often with a push-button start), exhaust pipes, fuel lines, and hoses. If you are unsure whether your vehicle is generator ready, please give us a call at (866) 888-6111.
