One of my points is the sound level of the Honda generator versus the onboard generator.
Can two people stand next to the onboard generator and have a conversation using the same voice level that they would use if the generator were off? If not, then the Honda has a modest value because it is quiet.
My Honda 2000 will lower the idle speed when the load is very low. This reduces gas consumption. The only thing I have ever used my Honda for was to charge a pair of 12 volt batteries. This only requires the lowest idle level that the Honda generator has.
I run the generator every morning for an hour. This requires 1 pint of gasoline to recharge the batteries after a days use. I carry 15 gallons of gasoline for the ATVs, so I do not need to carry any extra gas for the Honda generator.
Wasting exterior storage space was mentioned. The Honda generator is about 2 cubic feet. My 24R has 75 cubic feet of exterior storage. I think I will be able to find room for it if I want to take it along.
Weight is not a factor. I can carry two at a time, one in each hand.
I think it would be silly to purchase a Honda generator to go with my 24R, but I already have it.
I'll figure it out next season.
