Default 1981 33fc Generator replacement

Hello all I was wondering if anyone had any insight on replacing the generator with a Cummins QD 6000 in a 1981 33 fc. hoping it will fit in the same slide in. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Matt

I think Mike Hohnstein has installed these generators in FC's. I would think 8k watt as a minimum and more like 10k watt for plenty of power when it's hot put

I got a deal I couldn't pass up on a new QD6000 and installed in in my FC in 2019. I figured for the over $2k I saved it was worth seeing if 6k was big enough. I am careful not to run too many large draw items at a time (so I generally don't run the microwave and other heavy load while the AC is running on the same "leg"), and so far haven't had an instance of needing more power. No issue running 2 AC units with power to spare.

My original generator was on a stationary tray, not a sliding one. If you have fitment questions, you can search for the QD installation manuals, they have good dimensions listed to see if it will fit.
