Don't know this brand. I have a Honda 3000 that works just fine. Wish I would have gone with two 2000 with a companion connection . Don't always need more than a single 2000.

Looks to be the typical low-end contractor genny. It will give you electricity. It will be very loud. It will burn lots of gasoline. Anyone within 200 feet of you will hate you.

Many options of quiet inverter generators are available.

The DuroStar looks just like a clone of a big box store generator w/ name-brand engine I purchased for household power outages (about $350 on sale). Although advertised as "quiet" compared to others, IMO, like mine, it will be too noisy to meet the decibel restrictions at most CGs. If you run one of these, you will get complaints & have to turn it off - probably right when outside temps are hitting 90 & you desperately need your A/C to be running....

So... I just bought (2) WEN 2000-Watt Inverter Generators for $379.99 (each) from Woot.com.

From all appearances the WENs appear to have the Yamaha 2000 engine - right down to the location of the dipstick, etc. - likely built in the same China factory to the same specs. The WEN units have higher customer satisfaction than similar units sold at Harbor Freight, etc. From Amazon I added a $60 WEN 56421 Parallel Connection Kit to which I can plugin my 30A TT power cord & run the A/C or microwave.

They are light-enough that I was able to carry one in each hand from my garage to the back of my property. I can just hear them running outside the TT with A/C running. You can have a conversation sitting right next to them, but it's a little annoying. However, place them 15' away on the other side of the TT and they are no bother...

Unlike the household genny, a gallon of gas in each will power them through the night. You can also easily rig-up safe ways to fuel them from larger tanks...

I run the two Honda 2000's with companion connection. Very quiet and you only need one if not running the AC. Small and easy to move around and both fit nicely in the generator slot in the front of TH for storage. As long as you top off gas before you go to sleep, they will run all night.
