Texashighsheriff I've been meaning to ask. How did you get 1000+ ft lbs of torque out of your Cummins?

No DPF...No cat...No muffler....resonator only to keep out drone....4 inch tail pipe extender so we don't hear the exhaust.....true 4 inch pipes...cold air intake, great HP tuner.
It was the HO option from the factory as well. Last year for that. It came with 800 so getting extra 20 percent no problem.

2012 last year before having to add the nasty extra fluid. Plus you really can't modify the 2013's and up.

Texashighsheriff A friend of mine has a 2012 Cummins HO with a tuner as well. He hauls RVs out of Elkhart for a living. I have a 2009 15 liter ISX Cummins in my big truck. It puts out 1650 ft lbs and is set at 435 hp to save fuel. I have all the diesel after treatment still intact as I run to California a lot. I have almost the same TT as you. It is a 2014 Eagle 338 rlts with all the options. I recently installed a Power Twin II leveling/stabilizer just in front of the tandems.

You can get 2 - 2000 watt Champions (inverter style) for the price of 1 Honda and yes you can get a parallel kit for them. I have a cheap Champion for use in emergency's only. Had it for 6 years now and it always starts on the first pull so I am impressed with the company.

No doubt a champion runs great. The price difference is the noise level and fuel efficiency.
Honda runs at about 54-56 decibels...normal talking sound level..champion you can hear in the next county.

Yes, I saw that in another post. Nice modification.

I have a 3000i Handi (Honda) really like it . Runs everything in the TT including the AC. Also makes a phenominal home standby, for which I've used it oh 2 often. Running through a 6 circuit Gen-Tran transfer switch 30A I can have my house up and electrified in about 3 min. Burns about 2 gal of gas in 24 hrs. I highly reccommended this model, Wt. 78lbs at 65dB. Kind of kills two birds with one stone

Several generator threads. Suggest you search and read them. Will answer all your questions and then you can make your decisions.

My input is don't buy a big generator to power up your AC that you might or might not need most of the time. The rest of the time your will regret the decision to go big. A 2000 [I'm a Honda guy but there are others] will run the camper including the microwave with just a little power management. The honda 2000i's and yamaha's are easily to manage, compact, and did I mention almost whisper quiet. Don't buy a cheap bargain generator. You get what you payfor when dealing with generators.

That's true....but as prolly 98 percent of any questions has been answered ESP if you searched the whole www...then this site would die a slow death.
It takes continuing interaction between members to keep it alive and growing.
Just my thoughts.
