No its used to cover the opening across the front of the tool box. You can see it in the picture. Otherwise there is a open space across the bottom front where you see my ladder. Also you can see that there is still plenty of room for other tools and things. I have a pancake compressor on one side and various tools and supplies on the other. I also have a cable with lock from the generator to the bottom corner attach point which is virtually impossible for anyone to access and cut.

go4snow,

Do you run the generator in the tool box?? If so do you have a heat problem? How about exhaust??

I leave the top open when running. Have never had a heat problem.

The exhaust blows out the top right side. It is part of the cooling blower.

lyncjim. I am considering doing the same thing. On a travel trailer I know it through mine out a bit as far as feeling it while towing. Its not a lot of weight but did you notice any difference in how your trailer towed with that weight on there. Thanks.

Hello sau4u,

I have the same generator as lyncjim and mounted to our 5th wheel the same way. I didn't notice the 5th wheel pulling any differently.

Good luck,
Robert

Most 5th wheels have enough weight on nose of trailer that they do not notice any change.
