The gasoline inverter portable, Onan 4500 Watt Generator P4500i with Remote Start makes just 52 dBA noise—quiet enough to have a normal conversation just a few feet away. The 3.4-gallon fuel tank keeps the generator running for 18 hours at a 25% load. Use regular unleaded gasoline with 10% (or less) Ethanol.
Use the Remote Fob from your RV or the Push Button for easy, trouble free startup of the 7.4 horsepower OHV 4-stroke engine. The P4500i rolls over most terrain with heavy duty wheels and a telescoping handle. At 98 pounds, it weighs less than many competing inverter generators of equal power.
Onan 4500 Generator
The 4500 Generator is a fuel efficient, portable inverter generator with a variable speed engine that adjusts to the present load. An Automatic Choke ensures easy starts and reduces fuel consumption. The portable inverter runs for 18 hours at 25% load and 15 hours at 50% load. Approved for sale in all 50 states including California, the P4500i is CARB and EPA Compliant.
Rated at 3700 running watts and 4500 peak watts, the 4500 Watt Generator has two 120-Volt, 20-Amp Outlets, one TT-30R 120-Volt, 30-Amp outlet, and a pair of 5-Volt DC USB Outlets rated at 1 amp and 2.1 Amps. A Reset Breaker provides overload protection. Automatic voltage regulation and less than 3% Total Harmonic Distortion provide clean power for sensitive electronics and everyday appliances. Parallel a second P4500i for up to 50-Amps of Power.
The P4500i Portable Inverter 4500 Generator is both quiet and portable. At 98 pounds, it moves easy on oversize heavy-duty wheels. Operating noise down to 52 dBA is quieter the average conversation spoken in normal tones. You can still enjoy the sounds of the great outdoors or talk without shouting or raising your voice. Meets United States Forest Service and U.S. Park Service Requirements for generator noise levels and spark arresting mufflers.
Onan’s 4500 Generator features automatic, remote starts with a factory paired remote fob, push button starting at the control panel, and recoil starting as a backup. Low oil shutdown and an overload protection breaker protect the generator from damage. An LED Data Center shows fuel level and percent power output. The digital display includes remaining run time, kilowatts, Liters of Fuel, Voltage, and Lifetime hours.
Cummins Onan provides a residential warranty of 3 years, and a 1-year commercial warranty.
The 4500 Watt Generator Includes the factory paired remote fob, one 0.6 quart bottle of 10W30 oil, one spark plug, the battery charger, and documentation.
Onan 4500 RV Generator
The Onan 4500 RV Generator has remote starting and a 30-Amp Travel Trailer Outlet. Quiet 52 dBA operation and long run times on a single tank of gas make the Onan Inverter Portable perfect for RV camping. Portability plus a 120-Volt duplex outlet and 5-Volt USB outlets add functionality for tailgating, camping, or emergency power at home. Add a parallel cable and second P4500i and the two generators can supply up to 50 Amps for larger RVs or wherever you need more power.
The Cummins Onan 50 Amp Parallel Kit for the P4500i Generator allows two inverter generators to run in parallel and provide up to twice the power of a single generator. The A058M290 works with two P4500i generators or one P4500i and one P2500i generator.
Running two P4500i generators in parallel has advantages over a single generator.
- A single generator provides up to 3700 running watts. Parallel P4500i doubles the power output to 7400 watts and up to 9000 starting watts—that’s enough for two 15,000 BTU RV Air Conditioners, the refrigerator, and other lights and appliances.
- The outlet on the kit is a 50 Amp 120-Volt Receptacle. Add an extension cord on a generator outlet to use the full 61.6 Amps at 120 Volts (75 starting amps).
- Two P4500i Generators with a 50 Amp Parallel Kit share the load. A 100 percent load for one generator is a 50 percent load for two generators. Run time is much longer for the parallel generators than a single generator. For example, if the load would use up the fuel in 7 hours on a single generator, two will run for 15 hours before refueling.
- Reduced load on the parallel generators reduces the noise level.
- Plug the 50 Amp Parallel Kit Cable into both generator parallel ports and connect the grounds.
- Start the first generator, wait for the green light.
- Start the second generator, wait for the green light.
- Connect your load.
The Cummins Onan Parallel Kit works with two P4500i generators or one P4500i and one P2500i generator.
The Parallel Kit comes with a one-year warranty.
