Just picked up an MEP 002a at the auctions. 50hrs. Trailer mounted. Was gonna tow it behind my 5 ton and use it to power my Christmas lights in tonight's parade. Any reason I can't have it running while towing it ?

None that I know of.

Well, except it might be so loud as to be an annoyance in the parade.

i think his 5 ton running will drown out most of the generator noise.. at parade speeds I would not think it will effect cooling.

It'll be just fine... you won't be shaking it bad enough to cause a loss of lubrication, and that's really the only concern.
