You are getting your new 5th wheel set up: Hitch? Check. Extra batteries for power? Check. Extra generator? Check – but you’re not sure the best to place to store it. Storing it inside the trailer could potentially ruin your new carpets or flooring with stains as well as exhaust fumes blowing throughout the trailer.
Did you know there’s a solution to this little issue? Enjoy extra generator power without having to deal with constantly moving it in and out of your RV and potentially cause damage or mess. Presenting: the Lock and Load! This generator tray is perfect for not only storing your generator while you’re on the road – but also locking it up so it’s safe from potential theft!
You may be asking, “where?” There’s a couple of different options that will work. You can either install it on the front of your truck like the photo above – perfect for your convenience and you don’t even have to think about it once it’s on the tray. Or, you can install it on a hitch that is behind your 5th wheel (shown to the left).
There are many 5th wheel trailers that come with a hitch already installed on the back – usually for cargo trays or bike racks. In this instance, it’s a perfect spot for the Lock and Load! For those who are really dedicated to extra power, you could always get a custom receiver installed, just like the one we installed below at our Retail Product Development Center, Torklift Central in Kent, WA!
