I have and love solar panels...320 watts worth on my trailer. They let me do everything...well...except run my AC.
Since we will be in the desert for 3 weeks this summer, with temps over 100, and since we won't always have hookups, I ordered the Champion 3100 inverter generator from Costco when it was on sale. I only plan to run it to cool down the trailer as needed. I must say, I am quite pleased with how quiet it is. I also plan to use it for power outages/emergencies at home.
My solar will keep my batteries charged with no problem. the generator will run the AC if/when needed. I am not one to run a generator every day all day. I prefer the peace and quiet of solar, but at times, generators have their place. I also don't want to disturb my neighbors. This summer, I will listen to see if others are running generators around me. If they are, I will fire up the champion to run the AC for a while. If others are not using generators, I will probably sit in the shade and not run mine. I don't want to be the only one disturbing the peace :-)
