My Catering Trailer Does Not Have Any LPG
I've just bought a catering trailer with just electric connections. Previous owner was running a tea urn, 3 fridges, 1 blender and a potato oven on festivals so he did use their power supply. I did mention to him I wanted mobile and so would need a generator as also adding a griddle, a deep fryer, a microwave and a Bain Marie. And he mentioned it should be fine with a 3.5kva generator. Today an adviser told it would be impossible to find a generator to run all that as for eg. Just a deep fryer is 3kw ... a griddle other 3 and the rest adding up I was looking for at 15kw generator which would be the size of his desk! Is the KVA same as kw?
Let’s say I get a 4kva generator and my microwave is 1600w, does it means the microwave uses 1.6 of the 4 kva, leaving me with a 2.4 for the rest??? I’m so confused, is it possible to run my trailer without having LPG installed. Thanks
