We just got the Champion 3100 & love it. It runs everything including A/C and is pretty good on fuel & a lot quieter than we thought it would be.. Very happy.
I had a Yamaha 3000 before this unit but it was twice the weight & not as powerful.

I too run Honda 2000s. 1 Honda 2000 will run everything in my 25BHS except the AC...and then just parallel the other and everything is good. Nice and quiet!

Fuel wise...I'll find out in a couple week when I take them out boon docking 5 days. I expect they should burn about 5 gal total but that is not running them full time. Run them here and there to charge battery and such. It'll be cool enough not to need AC too.

Make one of these. I made one and run around 20 hours non stop with ac running.

Or this and run each gen on its on gas can. About two days running.

The generator will suck the gas into its tank.

For that price I would guess it is not a inverter type? I was thinking of picking up a non-inverter type for the house. good price for the wattage.

My Honda 2000 will run the air but not the micro or fridge at the same time.

I have a built in generator on my 5'er, but when I was working on decisions for full timing a few years ago I gave a lot of thought on whether a 5'er of a TT. During this process I thought about generators a lot. I had pretty much decided on a 3500-4000 watt Honda or Yamaha because of their sound level operation and overall quality. At this point I would only consider two smaller ones and a parallel cable. You never know when you are going to develop back problems or other issues that will prevent you from handling a larger single generator. Just something else to think about.

I am leaving Road Atlanta this morning after boondocking here for the past 5 days. I ran my generator for 35 hours on approx 15 gallons of gas. I say approx because the last 5 gallons is running right now. Coffee time you know.

We have a Champion 3100 Inverter Gen, we only dry camp a few times a year so the Inverter spends most of it's life under a table in the shop. I just couldn't justify 3 or 4 grand for something that sat 350 days a year.

We have been very happy with the 3100 it has run everything we need by paying attention and managing the systems and with it being about $900 the price can't be beat.

Two Champion 2000 with parallel kit. As quiet as a Honda for less money, light enough for an old guy to easily move around. Runs everything!
