The control panel has an three-way electric Start/Run/Stop switch to operate the generator. It also has a pull cord on the rear in case the battery is discharged for any reason.
For external connections the panel includes 2x120v household GFCI outlets and 1x120v/240v 30A twist lock RV-ready outlet. These are protected by circuit breakers which automatically trip when there's a short circuit or an overload, preventing damage to the generator and connected appliances and equipment either to the generator itself or to the circuit.
In addition, there are 12v DC charging posts and a digital multimeter. The multimeter keeps track of actual run time and total run time, and displays voltage and frequency. Monitoring total run time is useful for you to keep to the manufacturer's maintenance schedules, which should extend the life of the generator.
A sensor monitors the engine's oil level and shuts it down when the level is too low for safe operation. And if the level is too low you won't be able to start it until more oil has been added.
All DuroMax generators are EPA Certified and CARB Compliant, so you can use this one too in all 50 states.
