This one https://www.homedepot.com/p/Champion...536i/203791700 has held up well for me for the 4 years I've had it. It won't run my AC but everything else. Can be used in parallel as well for 30 amp service. As with any generator, keep the spark arrestor clean for maximum power.

Hey Tom, saw the Yamaha 2000 watt inverter SC2000i @ $499.99 at Costco. I believe it's the same one I paid $975.00 for 2 years ago.

Thats not a true Yamaha generator, although it looks like one and says "powered by Yamaha". The brand is A 1 power. Not sure what the differences are in design if any.

Gen for an SLX212?

Just bought a 2018 SLX212 QBW and urgently waiting for spring to take our first trip! Expect to spend at least some time at national parks etc with no hookups so figure a generator is in our future. Our AC is 15k btu and would like a genny big enough to start/run that at least by itself occasionally. Have heard good things about the Champion 3100; any recommendations? Is the 94 lbs too onerous for a couple in their mid-60s to schlep into the pickup? Thanks from a real newbie!

I have a Champion 3100 inverter which is a fantastic generator. I'm 65 and I load it in the back of my 3/4 ton all by myself. It's whisper quiet and the remote start is the best part.

Probably the easiest way to determine what you need/like/want would be to go to a local Honda or Yamaha dealer. dealers by me (I have both) generally have every size on the showroom floor. Go ahead and pick them up, lift them, pick um up as if your lifting to the bed of your truck. This should give you an idea on what you can reasonably handle without throwing your back out. Get as much power as you can afford and still handle. After you determine what is best, then you can decide what brand you'd like. It doesn't have to be a Honda or Yamaha but there is a reason why they are well known leaders for dependability. Other brands should match up well in both power and weight. Theres a lot of choices out there.
Good luck with your search.

Thanks! Does your 3100 handle your AC OK?

I bought my Champion 3100 inverter from SuperGen Products, an authorized Champion dealer in NY. They sell both new and refurbished inverters.

I bought this one because of the price and because it is dual fuel and large enough to run the 15,000 BTU A/C. I carry extra propane anyway for a fire ring so no need for gasoline. I had my neighbor help me load it into the pickup and I locked it to the bed. When we get back I'll have him help me get it down. 112 lbs is easier to get down than up but I prefer a soft landing.
