Dometic LW3000 Plus Generator

While at the Columbus RV Super Show, saw the Dometic LW3000 Plus Digital Inverter Generator. Apparently, this is a new Dometic product, released late last year, early this year.

The spec's on the unit are:
Weight 59 lbs.
Color Black
Power Output 120V/60Hz
Engine Air-cooled, Four-stroke
Fuel Gasoline
Fuel Capacity 1.8 Gal

Receptacles Two AC, One DC
Rated AC Output (KW) 2.6
Max AC Output (KW) 2.8

Online it claims:
Lightweight 24 percent lighter than comparable models
Quiet (59 dB), air cooled four-stroke engine
Energy efficient 15.4 percent more fuel capacity
Strong enough to power a 13,500 BTU air conditioner
Consistent power load means you can use sensitive computer
equipment. Perfect for printers, computers, audio equipment and
Long run time up to 10 hours, depending upon the load
Dometic's 1-Year Plus Warranty

(See it here: )

Anyone have or used one?

Based on a good show price and the Dometic name (and a dealer I've dealt with in the past), I took a chance and bought one.

When I got home. I added oil (nowhere did it state whither it shipped with oil in the crankcase or not), fueled it and fired it up. Started easily and handled the load (converter, couple 120 volt lights, 32" LCD TV, and 1.5 kW heater (still too cold here to fire up the ac) easily and seemed very quiet. The Eco Throttle control handled load changes well.

I'm really interested in hearing comments from others on this generator!
