When I first started in the Class A I carried a small (1,000 watt Genrac) generator, this generator is very close to the Honda EU,2000i when it comes to fuel consumption and sound issues but is only 1,000 watts. A TRUE 1,000 watts though (the EU-2000i is 2,000 watts PEAK output. not continuous).
1,000 is enough to feed my Converter (well 1100 but the generator was "Conservatively" rated) so it was just enough to charge the batteries which, at that time, were a tad "Small" compared to my needs.. Worked several times.
Alas... That generator "Grew legs" and walked off. I know who's legs it grew but knowing and proving.. Two different things.
I'd really like a true 1,000 watt portable (I'm thinking a Yahama EF-1200i or another Genrac).
Home is where I park it!
