    At least he thought about safety enough to install and extra wide side mirror to look around the AC unit. And the generator is double strapped, in accordance with Arkansas vehicle laws.

    But he wouldn't need all that extra crap if he just put the generator in the back seat:)

    Disclaimer....this is a joke in case anyone tries to take my advice....lol

    I like the power cord on the windshield and through the door. I wonder if it gets all tingly on a rainy day?

    There is a test for stray current. Put a lightbulb in the mouth and place your hand on the hood.

    I'm wondering how he got it up there. He must have burly redneck friends.

    Nope. No duct tape.

    Never under estimate the determined jerry-rigger ! This RV is a MacGyver masterpiece with shore power hook-up, and generator for on the fly, I want one,all I would add is a nice roll -up ladder to refuel the thing .it's a shame you can't see what else is inside ,maybe microwave?

    Wouldn't it have been cheaper to get the AC fixed on the car?

    So what's the best generator to use for a car? Maybe the same as a swim platform. And does it also charge the car batteries? Wonder what size is best? What brand of charger? Any ideas?

    There is the duct tape. This one might be Red Green's ride.

    Its best to put it on the hood of the car so its away from the windows. Its safe that way.
