5'er adapter for Gooseneck / Generator

#1
I just installed an adapter for my gooseneck hitch. I wanted to stay with the gooseneck due to the ability to turn the ball. Less clutter in the bed. Does anyone have any bad / good experiences with Adapters.

I am a weekender camper with the occasional Bow Hunt. Does anyone recomend a Generator for a 30amp 5'er.

For quietness, you would be hard pressed to beat a Honda EU3000. You may need to install an Easy Start kit in your A/C. For quietness and portability, a pair of Honda EU2000s with the connection kit is popular.

If your trailer is new, you probably voided the frame warranty. Goose adapters put extra stresses on the frames as they are being pulled from a different location. I know Forest River, Keystone, Gulf Stream and some others will not honor frame problems if they find out about an adapter.

Think it's for 1 year but not certain. Might want to beef up the front frame if you are out of warranty. Not hard to do.
