If possible. provide a shelter for the generator set.
Locate generator set so that radiator faces into
prevailing winds. Use natural barriers or, if possible,
construct a barrier to protect generator set from salt
water. Cover generator set with canvas or other
waterproof material when it is not being operated.
Keep all generator access doors closed, as much as
possible, to prevent entry of salt water into housing
Wash exterior surfaces frequently with clean water
when generator set is not operating.
Check wiring connections for corrosion
insulation for signs of deterioration.
The generator set will operate at elevations up to 4000
meters) above - sea level without special
adjustment or reduction in load. At elevations greater than
4000 feet (1219.1 meters) above sea level, the kilowatt rating
is reduced approximately 3.5 percent for each additional 1000
feet (304.8 meters).
