Briggs & Stratton 30545 P3000
Noise Level: 58dB at 7 meters at 25% load

Honda EU3000iS 3000
Noise Level: 58 dB @ rated load; 49 dB @ 1/4 load

I'm more leaning towards solar. Since I live in Arizona, I use hookups for summer, can't see running a generator 24/7.

Just remember quite is relative your surroundings. I have a bunch of different generators and although in daytime with a lot of noise around they seem very quite. At night when its silent out they sound loud to me. I have 2 Honda 2000s with companion link (my favorite config for our TT). My Honda EU3000 (160 lbs) is a great power plant heavy to move easily myself. And my Honda 7000 which weights 270lbs is about 60 decibels which is practically identical to the 3000 (58dec) and the 2000 (59dec). We had the 2000 on our sailboat and in a quiet cove it sounded like a freight train. We installed solar on the boat amd rv so we onky needed a genny for air conditioning. Jusy wanted to share experience with all 3 Hondas. We only use the 7000 for the house...i lovd love love the 7000.

Yesterday SW WA had mid-90 degree temps. I ran the two EU2000's for air conditioning and used just under 5 gallons of gas. All day air conditioning set at 76 for just about $11 in fuel. I don't think that's all that bad. Is that bad? Someone will tell me.

Quiet portable generators?

Earlier this year we used our Yamaha 2400 watt to charge our batteries a few times at The City of Rocks in NM and campers close to us said they could not hear it running.

My response is no doubt late as the poster has already made his choice and a lot of others have chimed in on "their" choices. Reading all the post I noticed no one mentioned the Ryobi 2200 from Home Depot. I have a pair of them and only need to connect both for AC. However, the noise level is as quite or more so than the Honda's. It weights about 47 lbs and two can be purchased for $1198 at Homedepot with the "parallel" kit. This is my set up and I'm really pleased with it.
