CONTROLS AND FEATURES
Ignition Switch
The ignition switch (F) must be in the ON / RUN position
for the generator to operate. Turn the switch to the
START position to start the engine.
DC Receptacle and Fuse
The DC receptacle is protected from an overload with a
fuse. If the DC circuit is overloaded, the 5 amp fuse (F1)
will blow and power to the DC receptacle will cease. The
red light on the DC panel will illuminate. The fuse is
located to the left of the receptacle and is accessed by
snapping open the access door. Replace the fuse with
one of the same capacity. Using a higher rated fuse may
cause damage to the generator alternator.
The DC receptacle (F2) may be used for charging 12 volt
automotive-type batteries only. It is not designed to oper-
ate DC motors. Output voltage is 15-30V. DC output will
vary according to the position of the Smart throttle switch.
120V AC Twist Lock Receptacle
120V AC receptacle (G) provides connection for properly
rated, 120V AC appliances.
120V / 30 Amp
AC Receptacles
Two AC receptacles (I) provide two connections for
properly rated AC appliances. The two AC receptacles
are rated at 20 amps.
Ground Terminal
Ground terminal (H) connects to the frame of the
generator metal parts that do not conduct current, and
grounds terminals of each receptacle. Consult a qualified
electrician, electrical inspector, or local agency having
jurisdiction for local codes or ordinances for the intended
use of the generator before using the ground terminal.
Fuel Volume Indicator
Fuel Volume Indicator (J) provides an indication of fuel
quantity.
Starter Recoil Grip
Do not allow starter grip to snap back against the
generator. Return it gently to prevent damage to the
starter.
Starter grip (K) causes the recoil starter to crank the en-
gine when pulled.

OPERATION
Ensure the combined electrical rating of the powered
device(s) do not exceed the maximum allowed by the
generator. Never exceed the maximum power rating
of the generator. Power levels between rated and
maximum may be used for no more than 30 minutes
.
DC Operation
Connecting the Battery Charging Cable:
The battery emits explosive hydrogen gas during
normal operation. A spark or flame can cause the
battery to explode with enough force to kill or cause
serious injury. Wear protective clothing and eye
protection when charging a battery.
Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories
contain lead and lead components. Wash hands after
handling.
To prevent the possibility of creating sparks near the
battery, connect the charging cable first to the gener-
ator then to the battery. Disconnect the cable first at
the battery.
The battery contains sulfuric acid (electrolyte). Con-
tact with skin or eyes may cause severe burns. Wear
protective clothing and a face shield. If electrolyte
gets on your skin, flush with water. If electrolytes get
in your eyes, flush with water for at least 15 minutes
and call a physician.
Electrolyte is poisonous. If swallowed, drink large
quantities of water or milk and follow with milk of
magnesia or vegetable oil and call a physician. Keep
out of reach of children.
The DC charging output is not regulated. The DC
receptacle should only be used for charging 12Vdc
batteries.
The DC output is to be used to charge batteries only.
Serious damage to the stator windings can occur if
connected to a DC motor or transformer.
This generator is not designed to operate DC motors.
Output voltage is 15-30V. DC output will vary according
to the position of the Smart throttle switch.
1.
Disconnect the vehicle ground cable from the
negative (-) battery terminal.
2.
Plug the battery charging cable into the DC receptacle
(A).
3.
Connect the red lead of the battery charging cable to
the positive (+) battery terminal and then the black
lead to negative (-) battery terminal. Do not reverse
the charging cables or serious damage to the
generator and/or battery may occur.
4.
Start the generator.
The DC receptacle may be used while the AC power is in
use.
Do not start the vehicle while the battery charging
cable is connected and the generator is running. The
vehicle’s charging system or the generator may be
damaged.
NOTE: The DC receptacle is protected from an
overload with a fuse. If the DC circuit is overloaded,
the 5 amp fuse will blow and power to the DC

OPERATION
receptacle will cease. The red light on the DC panel
will illuminate. If the DC overload fuse continues to
blow, discontinue charging and see your authorized
Polaris generator dealer. The overload fuse
does not
prevent overcharging the battery. The fuse is located
to the left of the receptacle and is accessed by
snapping open the access door. Replace the fuse
with one of the same capacity. Using a higher rated
fuse may cause damage to the generator alternator.
Disconnecting the Battery Charging Cable:
1.
Stop the generator.
2.
Disconnect the black lead of the battery charging
cable from the negative (-) battery terminal and then
the lead from the positive (+) battery terminal.
3.
Unplug the battery charging cable from the DC
receptacle (A).
4.
Connect the vehicle battery ground cable to the
negative (-) battery terminal.
Air Conditioning Operation
For best results, the SMART throttle switch should be in
the off position. Bring the generator to a normal operating
temperature before applying the air conditioning load. Al-
ways allow a 2 minute wait period when manually cycling
an air conditioner off and on. A longer wait period may be
required under unusually hot weather conditions. Addi-
tionally, all other loads should be turned off until the air
conditioner has started and is performing normally. It is
also important to follow the air conditioner manufacturer's
instructions for starting and restarting for proper opera-
tion. Some air conditioner manufacturers offer a start ca-
pacitor as an extra cost option. The lack of a start
capacitor can cause the air conditioner to draw too high a
starting current and overload the generator. Contact your
air conditioner dealer if you consistently have problems
starting your air conditioner with the generator. This gen-
erator is not generally recommended for air conditioners
exceeding 13,500 BTUs
SMART Throttle System
With the SMART throttle switch in the ON position, engine
speed is automatically lowered when loads are reduced,
turned off, or disconnected. When devices are turned on
or connected, the engine returns to the proper speed to
power the electrical load. When the smart throttle is in the
OFF position, the engine runs at rated load RPM.
Appliances with large start-up power demands may not
allow the engine to reach normal operating RPM when
they are connected to the generator. Position the SMART
throttle switch to OFF and connect the device to the
generator. If the engine still will not reach normal
operating speed, ensure the device does not exceed the
rated load capacity of the generator.
If high electrical loads are simultaneously connected,
position the SMART throttle switch to OFF to reduce
voltage changes.
The SMART throttle system is not effective for use with
devices or appliances requiring only momentary power. If
the device or appliance will be quickly turned on and off,
the SMART throttle switch should be in the OFF position.
When using the DC output, position the SMART throttle
switch to OFF.
