Generator For Mobile Catering Business

Hi Chris,

A bigger generator 4-5 Kv would be a much better solution to run all those appliances, but see how it goes. As you have pointed out the main power consumption will come from the microwave, and since you won't need to use it constantly this may not be a problem.
