    I have for years used my Honda EX650, pre inverter generator with my previous Hymer that featured a 2002 vintage Schaudt Electroblock unit. All without blowing anything and before that used the gen with the caravan.

    We have now a 2008 Hymer and that features a Schaudt CSV 409 unit.
    I read worrying stories of people blowing their controller units so have been too scared to couple up the old Honda. But as winter approaches, the solar cell's output wanes and me generator lays in the garage unused it seems a pity not to put it back into action. Obviously when and where it cant upset anyone but the birds and rabbits I hasten to add!!

    I have corresponded with Schaudt and got a guarded "probably ok" sort of answer but guidance towards investing in one of their circa £110 "OVP-1" over voltage protection units. For its limited use that's a bit steep in our case, it buys a fair bit of EHU.

    Anybody out there using a Schaudt CSV with a quality but older technology generator and knows if its safe, or more importantly its not safe??
    Cant face £360 replacement cost and all the hassle.

    Thanks Ocsid
