Even the most outdoors-oriented people occasionally want to get away from the heat and feel the sweet relief of artificially cooled air. Onboard, a reliable genset is the cornerstone of coolness.

The latest Onan unit from Cummins Power Generation, the 7/9 e-QD MDKBG, comes with a 7-kW rating at 50 Hz and a 9-kW rating at 60 Hz and was built with limited available space in mind. Measuring 32.4"Lx18.9"Wx22.1"H, it should fit most engine rooms. Like all e-QDs, the 7/9 MDKBG has electronic governing that enables the genset to maintain voltage regardless of the load, ensuring that you keep cool. Diagnostic information is available at the touch of a button.

The 7/9 MDKBG has single-side servicing, comes with a five-year limited warranty, and retails for about $11,269.
