WARNING:
This product contains or emits chemicals
known to the state of California to cause
cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Study these SAFETY RULES carefully before
installing, operating, or servicing this equipment.
Become familiar with this manual and with the unit.
The generator can operate safely, efficiently, and reli-
ably only if it is properly installed, operated, and
maintained. Many accidents are caused by failing to
follow simple and fundamental rules or precautions.
Generac cannot possibly anticipate every possible cir
cumstance that might involve a hazard. The warn-
ings in this manual, and on tags and decals
affixed to the unit, are, therefore, not all-inclusive. If
using a procedure, work method, or operating tech-
nique that Generac does not specifically recommend,
satisfy yourself that it is safe for others. Also make
sure the procedure, work method, or operating tech-
nique chosen does not render the generator unsafe.
DANGER
Despite the safe design of this generator,
!
operating this equipment imprudently, neglect-
ing its maintenance, or being careless can cause
possible injury or death. Permit only responsi-
ble and capable persons to operate and main-
tain this equipment.
Parts of the generator are rotating and/or hot
!
during operation. Exercise care near running
generators.
Potentially lethal voltages are generated by
these machines. Ensure all steps are taken to
render the machine safe before attempting to
work on the generator.

Safety Rules

IMPACT-36 plus II Recreational Vehicle Generator
!
• The generator engine releases DEADLY carbon
!
monoxide gas through its exhaust system. This
dangerous gas, if breathed in sufficient concentra-
tions, can cause unconsciousness or even death.
Never operate the generator set with the vehicle
inside any garage or other enclosed area. DO NOT
OPERATE THE GENERATOR IF THE EXHAUST
SYSTEM IS LEAKING OR HAS BEEN DAMAGED.
!
SYMPTOMS OF CARBON MONOXIDE POISON-
ING ARE (a) inability to think coherently, (b) nau-
sea, (c) vomiting, (d) twitching muscles, (e) throb-
bing temples, (f) dizziness, (g) headaches, (h)
weakness, and (i) sleepiness. IF EXPERIENCING
ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS, MOVE INTO FRESH
AIR IMMEDIATELY. IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST, GET
MEDICAL HELP . Shut down the generator and do
not operate it until it has been inspected and
repaired.
• Never sleep in the vehicle while the genset is run-
ning unless the vehicle has a working carbon
monoxide detector. The exhaust system must be
installed in accordance with the genset installation
manual. Make sure there is ample fresh air when
operating the genset in a confined area.
• The engine exhaust fumes contain carbon monox-
ide, which can be DEADLY. This dangerous gas, if
breathed in sufficient concentrations, can cause
unconsciousness or even death. Thus, the exhaust
system must be installed properly, in strict com-
pliance with applicable codes and standards.
Following installation, do nothing that might ren-
der the system unsafe or in noncompliance with
such codes and standards. The generator com-
partment must be completely vapor-sealed from
the vehicle interior. There must be no possibility of
exhaust fumes entering the vehicle interior. Never
operate this equipment with a leaking or defective
exhaust system.
• Keep hands, feet, clothing, etc., away from drive
belts, fans, and other moving or hot parts. Never
remove any drive belt or fan guard while the unit is
operating.
• Adequate, unobstructed flow of cooling and venti-
lating air is critical to correct generator operation
and is required to expel toxic fumes and fuel
vapors from the generator compartment. Without
sufficient cooling airflow, the engine/generator
quickly overheats, which seriously damages the
generator. Do not alter the installation or permit
even partial blockage of ventilation provisions, as
this can also seriously affect the safe operation of
the generator.
