I used to but alas over one summer when it was not in use... It grew legs and walked off.

If I ever find it again... I'm going to can those legs (Can as in turn them over to the police and have them tossed "in the can")

Home is where I park it!

When I'm dry camping at a State Park I always chain my Honda and attach a motion alarm to it. I have heard about too many running away from home during the night. Wouldn't you just love to catch one of these fools and beat them to a pulp. Peace and Love !

I leave my hondas running all night in the dessert as the furnace fans will all but flatten the batteries if I am using the furnace for heat.

note : If you have women in your rig- you need heat.

On glamis trips well fire up the 2K and split it between 2 toy haulers keeping them both with enough AC for lights and Tv's and furnaces as well as keeping the batteries topped off.

at about .10 gallons per hour its cheaper than draining batteries down past 80% all the time and eating them every two years or so trying to save on a few dollars of fuel.

The kind of SOB's that steal gennys (Yea, It happened to me) probably think HF is an upscale store.

I'm thinking of powering an oil burner ignition transformer with the generator - fifteen thousand volts might just reform their evil ways.
