Windrider,
I went back to the Generator Dealer-he gave me a full refund-in the form of a credit for the total amount I spent on the EU 3K. Very fair in my opinion. What I am going to do is sell my Honda 5K (we bought it for the house in 1999) and then buy an EU 6500. We will use it for the Lodge and the House. There is NO question that will have enough power. It delivers 54.1/27.1 Amps 120/240 respectively.
Re power, we do not have power at our other property/cabin. We use a generator, wood burner, propane to cook We do not have water. However we have gone on weekends (other TT) and 40 plus gallons of fresh water is more than enough for 2-4 people if you are reasonably conservative. We have done that many times. Our property where the Lodge will live- 100 acres, all woods, and no utilities-eactly how I like it! My opinion-that's camping.
Why by the Lodge-square footage. We like space.

Appreciate the feedback.

I think you hit every nail on the head in this post. I couldn't agree more with anything you're saying. The 6500 watts will be PLENTY & then some to run pretty much any household, unless you want to run a large TV, microwave, central air, and vacuum the floor all at the same time. I run our house (3600 square feet) with a 5000 watt cheapie Coleman back fed into the house (that's a whole other thread of no-no's entirely - I know). You'll do fine with the 6500.
That your dealer credited you every dollar of the purchase price for the 3000 - dude - that's your dealer forever now.
Everything you say about the camping experience - no utilities etc - again, you hit the nail right on the head. These things are made to be self contained. That's what they are for.
