Last winter during a power outage after an ice storm that knocked the electricity out of 8 days I got a generator. The generator is rated for around 5000 watts. My question is, is there any type of meter that I can attach to the generator to tell me how many watts that I am using. Is there something that I can plug in to the generator and then plug my power cord that came with the generator into. During the aftermath of the storm I had no idea how much of the generator I was using. I thing that I was only using a fraction of the possible output of the generator. Any input would be helpful. And as always, money is tight and the cheapest solution would be best. Thanks for your time.
