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!
