One 2000 Gen

Depending on onboard wattage that running a 2000 watt Honda will run a small RV microwave (1000 to 1200)
Remember all wattage adds up (load1 + load2 + load3) to total load on generator.
When under a large load Honda generator will scream when running.... very loudly, until microwave finishes. The PR folks don't mention this they only talk about idle noise or exceptionally no load.....

We have two Honda 2000s for our Work & Play set-up. One 2000 is good enough that I rarely hook both up in parallel unless I know I'll be running the AC. We can be watching TV with the fridge on and maybe a light or two and although it does start running hard, the wife can turn on the convection microwave and it won't miss a beat.

That's the setup we had before getting our first toyhauler. We were very pleased with it. That said, I could never go back after having a built in. So much more convenient.

I only run one 2K Honda it powers everything except the AC

AC I use the onen 4K

With onen mounted right under your bed and to the frame - you definitely know when it's on - I even put sound Db blocking insulation around it - which helps

You are right it isn't linear, dB is a ratio of power in to power out. Each 3 dB increase doubles the power; amplitude (voltage) is doubled every 6dB, however to the ear, perceived volume doubles at about every 10 dB increase.

I have not, but others on this site have. I've seen other posts about rolling carts. I think if the cart was the same height as the table, you could set it up next to the table and gain a lot more 'counter' space that way. When not in use, you could wheel it into the garage.
