I wouldn't haul the second generator. Not worth it.

There is a regular poster on another forum with a large battery bank and he uses multiple Vector 1093DBD chargers. It seems that they can be hooked together and do play well together.

Besides hanging all the weight, PLUS 20 gals of gas, on your butt end is just asking for a total disaster!!! You've got enough hardware to run a small city

You tell him Bob. I just emailed you the other day about solar. Nothing like hanging 20 gallons of gas out back for a rearender. Get 4 batteries and some solar and be done with it.

When I bought my '93 Winnie Warrior RV a few weeks ago I knew I wouldn't be using the 4KW Onan much because it's just too loud. Fortunately I have a couple of Honda EU2000i generators. They're quite handy when the electricity goes off during hurricane season here in FL. I took one with me when I boondocked for a week.

It was placed a short distance away and I could barely hear it. I just ran it in the evening and it did everything I required. A gallon of gas lasted a couple of days so with a full tank and full gallon can I didn't have to go for gas but once. Mayberrys in NJ used to sell them for under $1000 shipping paid.

I know you are aiming to charge your batteries with a generator or two, but I'll add another voice for solar. My 272 watt system keeps my 2 six volt batteries charged without gas or noise. After a cold night my bank is usually down to 75-80%, but is back to 100% by early afternoon even on mostly couldy days.
