I did it, accidentally. I stopped at a rest stop, used the generator to power my computer and check my email. My generator is so quiet, I forgot it was on, started up the engine, and drove 70 miles before I realized it was still on! I didn't notice any difference in mileage. I track mileage on a spreadsheet on every gas fill.
Also, on other RV boards, one RV couple said they run their generator, put a roast in a crock pot, put the crock pot in the sink, and when they get to their destination, VOILA, a meal! That's outrageous to me.
I think you might have to turn it off if you are on a ferry or going through an extremely long tunnel like the Eisenhower Tunnel through Colorado, well, I know you have to have your propane off for those situations. Maybe your generator, too!
