The reason we bought the gennie was because my wife uses a CPAP machine to sleep at night. When we mentioned this to the campground manager, she said to go ahead and use the gennie. Has anyone else had experience with this? Advice?
My wife uses a CPAP and we also have a Yamaha 2000is invertor generator and would not consider running it at night against regulations even though it is whisper quiet. We have two 6v Trojan T-105 batteries that provides tons of power to run the CPAP, TV, computers, phone chargers and any other devices we need to run. To run the CPAP we use a Rosewill 150 watt fanless invertor. We then use the Yamaha to recharge the batteries, run the vacuum and microwave during the day.
We are long time campers and discovered that 2 6v golf cart batteries are FAR superior than 2 12v batteries. The Trojans typically last about 8 years while the 12v batteries seldom lasted more than 2 seasons in our experience. We paid $105 for each T105, not much more than a good 12v battery.
