The Hayden model 3817 is rated at 2100 CFM in high speed mode. I find that in the winter months, mine does not need to run on high. This past weekend, we had a couple of really humid days at the Oswego rally. I was running a cruise-air, my Xantrex Inverter/charger, water heater and ice maker. I also had another coach plugged into mine using the buddy plug. Total draw on the Perkins was around 60 Amps. As long as the fan ran on high, there were no problems with heat and the genny ran around 185 degrees. If I removed the high speed and it ran on low, the temps got up to around 198/199 and it just could not keep up with the heat.
