Agree that those Honda inverter generators are super quiet. I personally wouldn't leave it under the Rv though. Hot gasses rise...

If I saw my RV neighbor walk out to his car, pull the rope on a generator and close it back up, I wouldn`t think he was a good neighbor, I`d be changing camp sites.
(Mod edit)

Easy guys. What he does to his CR-V is his problem and lets not toss insults, OK?

I was at that race as a photographer, I considered camping in the infield during races so I would have a home base right there. I decided against that pretty quickly especially when I saw the argument between some guys, apparently someone thought that the camper was unattended so they climbed up on top and set up the chairs. Then the owner returned from who knows where. Over near turn 1-2.

Considering that I'd be away from my camper from two hours before until two hours after it suddenly seemed like not such a hot idea.

Didn't mean to offend anyone on here especially the folks that didn't understand what I was explaining ! Just to be perfectly clear, if you do it correctly you DO NOT get any exhaust fumes inside your vehicle.

Thought you said you crack windows to let fumes out, then you say fumes don't get in?

WARNING. DO NOT RUN A GENERATOR INSIDE YOUR VEHICLE !
As has been pointed out, I obviously did a VERY poor job explain what I have done and how I did it. I have been warned by the administration that I will be run off of irV2 for offending folks while trying to explain myself. (never my intention)
Be warned that by running an internal combustion engine inside of a vehicle is a very bad idea and should be only done by me !
That's it. I'm fixin' to have a cup of coffee and get to my fun stuff !

IMO, anyone who makes any effort to quiet his generator so it doesn't disturb his neighbors is far more considerate than most generator users.
Enjoy your coffee....(and your fun stuff) !

Thanks Mel,
I'm still on the coffee part (really good) and will be moving on to replace my Winegard AS 2003 with a Traveler SK 1000 as soon as the rain stops. Of course it hasn't rained in California for a long time UNTIL , you know how that works !
Have a good Sunday and enjoy your travels !!

I used to have two generators, Alas they grew legs, I know who's, and if i ever find them and can prove it I will arrange housing for the homeless man who swiped them for a period of time (Courtesy of the department of corrections) but I have yet to find 'em

one was a Genrac 1000, just exactly the minimum to charge my batteries it is as loud as a Honda EU-2000i, roughly the same fuel consumption (but a bit more than half the power)

The other was a 3500 watt contractor job
(Oh the motor home has an Onan 5500)

I used the noisy one but NOT for camping and NOT at night.

I just saw,on sale, at Northern Tool, A locking cable with an incorporated 110 db Alarm. That would have helped. Sorry it's a tad late but not to late for others !

The largest "boondocking" operation in the US (probably world) has rules and managers. It's called the BLM.
