We have a 2010 EXP213. I have pretty well had the same experience as BCx213. I have two of the Champion 2000 inverter generators with a parallel kit. I found that even with the parallel kit the two champions won't run my air conditioner at any kind of altitude. The 3000 watt Champion wasn't available when I purchased mine. I switched my lighting out to LED's and that made a difference in battery life, but the best change I've made was to switch the original little battery out to a group 31. It's too bad that the X213 just does not have enough room to mount two batteries without major modification.

Thanks for the congrats and the advice. We've been loving the trailer, just in our driveway. First camp is May long weekend so should be fun for the kids. It'll be a lot of dry camping this summer since we booked not knowing a trailer was in our future. We're going down south for the coast and hopefully electrical hookups will be easier to come by. Porteau Cove looks beautiful. I've never stayed there before, just Alice lake up that way. I know nothing about private camping sites so that's my next area of research. Any good bc camping/rv sites you'd recommend?

I'm not too worried about being able to fire up the A/C but I would like the microwave to work and TV/video game ameneties . With that, I think i'll look at the honda 2000w or maybe the champion 2000w at costco since return policy protects me if it can't push enough juice.

Thanks again
Hi Steph, we are headed up to Golden Ears for the May long weekend, it is a great camp ground that is close by. Lightning Lakes in Manning Park is a good one but you need to reserve to get in there. Very beautiful lake, Cultus is okay, but too busy for my liking. RCMP are present during long weekends which pretty much explains it. There is a campsite there called Sunnyside that is privately run. Popular but no privacy. Porteau Cove is right off the Sea to Sky....has power, drawback is hwy noise and a train track so you will have trains going by from time to time.
