Gentron Titanium 4.0 Generator - New

We were at our RV dealer this week and they had a Gentron Titanium 4.0 fuel injected generator. Cost very reasonable in comparision to other built-ins. It is a new model introduced earlier this year and they have no experience with it yet and we could not find anything on the internet other than marketing info, which of course says it is wonderful.

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge with this unit?
We want to use it for our 5th wheel which has a 15,000 BTU A/C unit.

We are also considering a portable Honda generator and not sure if a 3000 will run the A/C. Have heard different opinions.

As with most other "new" products, we must be mindful of warranties and service availability. The best "new bargain" item may prove out to be pretty costly, if it fails and there's no one around, or parts, to repair it. That Honda or ONAN has a well established dealer and service network established - where will Gentron service be in 5 years when you need it?

13.K A/C's can be run with a 3KW Honda using a hard start kit on the A/C. Would think that a 15K A/C on a 4 KW gen would not be a problem. If it is then equip with a hard start kit for less than $50

Since your pulling a 5er have you thought about getting a generator toolbox 6500 watt?
