Anyone have a Yamaha 3000is inverter/generator? Just bought one from my son in his new sales position at a Yamaha dealer.

Haven't made use of it yet but am looking forward to it.

Since you've already bought it, it seems a bit late to be asking for people's thoughts and opinions about it.

And since you son actually sells them, shouldn't he have at least some insight into their performance and usefulness?

My complete 400 watt Renogy solar system + 4 6-volt 200 AH batteries + accessories cost me $2902.00. 1/3 of that is tax deductible, but given how much I will be working on the road with my travel trailer and how often I plan to camp off the grid, I expect it will pay for itself by the end of the year.

If that solar system is not enough I will add ~$500 Windwalker 250 Wind Generator.

The generator I selected was the Champion 75531i 3100 Watt Inverter Generator for $839, which is as quiet as the Yamaha EF3000iSEB, but ~$1350 less expensive. We'll see if I made the right decision.

I just asked a simple question regarding this particular product. Don't really appreciate the snippy answer, pal.

Last year we bought a 2800. Just a little smaller than yours, but doing the calcs I felt it was all we need.

Anyhoot, its the 4th generator I've owned in the past 20 years, and simply the best. Its so light for its capacity, and the fuel efficiency is outstanding. Starts with 1 pull. I'm so glad I bought the Yammi over a Honda.

I know its not what you asked about, but I would imagine the 3000 would be just as good.

I have the Yamaha EF3000iSEB

Great generator.

It sat in the garage all winter, at temps down to -30's.

I just got it out, changed the oil, put the battery in, turned the key, and on it went. Great generator.

My one regret is I have not used it more. I plan to do more boondocking this year, and hope to run it hard.

Ensign.

I own 2 of the ef2000is which I use singly on trips with my work trailer and which I pair up when I'm dealing with larger loads at home and need a full 30A source for something. I like being able to pick 1 up easily and have the redundancy so if one craps out I still have 2kw of power available. I've used the Yamaha's for years and have never had an issue.

Thanks,

Just wanted to get an opinion from someone that has one (or one like it).
