Saw this generator at Sams Club site

I have heard a lot of interest for small inverter generators and saw this one at the Sams Club site. $318 for a 1,800 /2,200 watt Westinghouse Igen 2200. It is a basic gas only but very cheap compared to Honda or others. I have no idea of quality but Sams is pretty good about taking back bad out of the box stuff.

Just thought I would post in case someone wanted one in this price range.

I have an iGen2200 that I purchased over a year ago from Sams as well as the iGen2500. Both have been absolutely excellent.

You can read a little more about mine here.

The above posts by RogerR and Midnightmoon got my attention because I just closed the currently running thread "Generator Fiasco". The total watts provided by the portables is about the same as the built-in for a lot less money. When the Onan on my Greyhawk eventually fails, I will likely retrofit the compartment to accomodate my 2000 and 2200 portables that I have had for years and still run fine. I will miss the convenience, but I'm from the nuts-and-bolts generation and it doesen't have to be "push button"; it does have to work.

I got the idea of retrofit from a campground neighbor that had made a generator compartment in a TT that was built without one. It looked and worked excellent.

I have the iGen2500, purchased at Sam's in 2020.

A couple of months ago we had a power outage on a 90 degree day and I was able to run my 145RB with AC for a few hours until the power was restored. Nothing like a nap in a cool trailer during a power outage. I'm totally happy with the iGen2500.

I'm going to pack the portables for the next hurricane evacuation, and I'll get my nap in even if the Onan quits.

I recently bought a Champion 2500 watt dual fuel Inverter, at 49#. Had used a 3500 watt champion inverter but it was getting too heavy for me at 98# I rarely use a generator and just wanted a backup power source for charging batteries or A/C if needed. The 2500 will run one of my 15k btu AC units on LP and if it's on eco mode has a little bit of throttle left. Exhaust noise seems a bit louder than the 3500. My 5er is generator prepped, but I'll probably never install one, I could buy lots of 2500 inverter generators for that price!

I found out about Westinghouse in a Consumer Reports review about the highest rated inverter generators so I bought an iGen2200 through Home Depot. I figured that it would run the bedroom air conditioner in our Alante 32N at less than half the fuel of running the internal genset. It has worked flawlessly for three years now powering tools out in the yard and at the RV when working on it during storage season. Plus, we live in Norfolk, VA so hurricane power outages are always a worry and the Westinghouse will power the freezer and fridge with lots of power left over for small appliances if the need arises.
