We are setup with our 255AH battery system to run all we want to have running when camping off the power grid in a one day/night run off the batteries. I only use the 2KW Honda generator to re-charge my 255AH battery bank back up the next day in a short three hour time span using smart mode charging technology.

My 2KW Honda generator sits secured in the tail gate corner of my covered and locked truck bed. It is easy to pull out onto the tailgate to use. Just the right distance away to use the 30AMP Shore Power cable from the trailer.

I also like the idea that my generator goes where I go for security purposes...

We would like an inverter mainly for the weight issue; however, our bank account says a 2000 watt generator ($500-$600) is our only option. What can we run with 2000 watts peak? We would like to run an automatic coffee pot, microwave and furnace on cold nights--not all at once. We were also thinking of getting a 4000/3500 watt Champion with electric start and wheel kit; however, this weighs in at 134 lbs--not good, as we are getting up in age. We are only considering the Champion if it runs the A/C along with the other things. We like to go off road where there is no electric. We would appreciate any and all suggestions. Thank you! p.s. we don't know what btu's the a/c has-can't find it anywhere in the paperwork.
I bought the New Champion 3100 inverter generator for $799.00 from Costco. it will run my AC, microwave etch. Although I would not operate everything at once. It runs at about 58 DBS and weighs less than 100 pounds. This generator will run sensitive electronic equipment. I have the Champion 3500/4000 watt... it runs at 68 DBS.... it is loud and I am going to sell it. My 3100 is way quieter and for the price being almost 2/3 cheaper than the Honda 3000 i
