Since the generator compartment is under the bed, how "intrusive" is it when running and trying to sleep? Thanks.
Actually the proximity to the bed was why I opted for the 5500. The 5500 is a bit quieter, it's twin cylinder (it more balanced and shakes less), and it's mounted on dampeners.
There is a Google video of two guys running a 4000 and in a separate video a 5500. The noise level difference is significant.
I have had no problems sleeping with it running. Although it is not unnoticeable it does not keep me from a good sleep.
