    I thought that's what the bootprints on the white carpet were for.

The only problem is that we can't run them off the truck's generator (they trip the circuit) so they're limited to shore power.

    For the residential burt-food type calls the electrics are fine since the home will still have power. For removing significant smoke, like after a fire, the gas ones are fine since there's probably already CO in the building, and power to the building secured.
    What kind of generators are you guys using?

    I forget off the top of my head. I just know that plugging the PPV into the truck line trips the breaker. Rather then fix that, TPTB changed the operations to always require the PPV's be plugged into the local power.

    Interesting. Our Honda 5000 powers our 18" Tempest fan just fine.

    The following link is a study done by the Salt Lake City Fire Department on CO concentrations from gasoline blowers. I think it plays right into this discussion..
