I managed to not only kill it today but catch the receptacle box on fire and that fused the on/off switch in the on position. Turned the gas line off and finally opened the choke all the way up to kill the engine. LOL kind of hairy there for a minute standing over a full gas tank, getting the fire put out and the engine to shut down Not going to knock the generator as it clearly says on the front to NOT EXCEED 58AMPS and after it was all said and done, I figured up the load was 72AMPs (My food trailer alone pulls 40 amps and ran fine on the generator) It was after I told my helper to plug in the 8 food warmers, 2 dorm refrigerators, a big fan and a few other things into the lot grid power......... and he plugged into extension cords in to the generator and then put 3 ways on the extension cords and then more extension cords into the 3 ways....... Not looking for a new helper yet but we did have a long discussion about following my instructions to the letter! Here is where I do have the problem with the generator, not a single one of the 120V breakers blew. I will still say it is a decent generator for emergency use, but not for sitting on the back of your truck to power anything that might overload the system. I would have been beyond pissed off had the gas tank gone and fried my Truck Would have been even more pissed if it had gone while I was trying to bust the receptacle box open with a hammer to get the fire extinguisher in it to kill the burning plastic and wire fire and get the damn engine to stop running............. With the price of gas that would have been 7 gallons of wasted fuel ! !
