Thoughts?

I know it's not a Honda but reviews seem fairly good. For the amount of time I would actually use it I think the price is right? Your thoughts? Wonder why they won't ship to Cali? If I did get it I would ship to Vegas and drive up

Way too noisy. If you buy it I hope you are not camped anywhere near me ay anytime.

If you want something with 30a RV outlet and will run an air conditioner, the least expensive unit that is quiet and good quality is the Champion 3100. I have one, works great.

It's certainly cheaper then a Honda. If it works for you do it. Bear in mind that it is a propane. Could be the right unit if you only want to use it sparingly.

Good luck.

The consensus is NOT propane. If very short time use OK, but for running A/C for longer times gas will run longer by a bit. Plus fuel station location might be Hard to find for propane when not in an RV area. For instance to fill propane I drive 10 miles one way and I'm in a fair sized town.

Propane has less energy density than gas. Many gas units can be modified to run on propane. If it were me, I'd buy a gas gennie that was just a little more than I really needed, and add the Motor Snorkel kit from US Carb so I can run dual fuel.

Do you not have a HD close to you. I like to see, touch, run engines before buying.
I imagine the unit will do what you want and you can run it where you darn well please. I'm sure I won't hear it.
