I guess we are the odd one around, after listening to my Lowe's purchased generator for a few years I am looking to buy a small quiet generator to charge the batteries. We have come to the conclusion that when boondocking there is no AC or microwave. The only entertainment inside the trailer is from movies loaded onto the computer, and that is because I have pain issues and do not sleep well, so I keep rather strange hours.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

I found this info on the Honda Canada site.

AC 13,500 BTU 1,800 Watts 16.4 Amps (running)
2,800 Watts 25.5 Amps (starting)

TV 300 Watts 2.72 Amps

Microwave 625 Watt 625 Watts 5.7 Amps (running)
800 Watts 7.3 Amps (starting)

I'm in the market for a generator as well & am leaning towards a EU3000iC (CDN version of the Handi) as it looks like it will handle my usage.

The 3000Handi produces 3000 Watts/25 Amps maximum & 2600 Watts/21.7 continuous. The Honda USA website says, "Max output to start most RV AC units in the 13.5 BTU class".
