If you have stored your generator for a prolonged period and found that there is no power output after this, you might need to Flash your alternator to restore the magnetism.
Follow the steps below:
1) To re-excite your alternator, we suggest you only use this method, as described by our friend DonyBoy7 on YouTube:
2) Run the generator for 20 minutes without load to stabilize the magnetic field in the Alternator.
3) Test with a suitable appliance to make sure the load is stable.
