Steve the Honda 3000 will run the 15 btu no problem you just got to make sure your not in Eco mode - turn Honda to normal run mode before turning on AC and don't run microwave when AC is on - TV and lights no problem w AC on and mainly the big load from AC is on start up

Owen will great for off grid daytime to charge stuff up -
But if a whole bunch of campers around I try to keep my environment respectful but it's over 95 degrees and no shore power all bets are off - I Need AC 😀😀

Play Harder,
Thanks for your input on the Honda 3000. I can't wait to confirm it in person this summer...

Another input the heater worked very well in main area and bedroom but had to close bathroom door closet to living room and leave bathroom door open that goes to garage to get enough heat into garage....

I have to leave my doors open too. The garage area has just the one vent there in the corner and no underbelly insulation in that area. If you run genset a space heater helps out great.

Yes my dad was sleeping in there - and there are 2 queen size beds in mine for guests Heat is a good thing😜

Can't believe the garage floor is not insulated on an extreme winter package that boggles me - looks like the rest of the TH is expandable spray in foam insulation - will have to do something to garage flooring

Another observation the ecoboost F150 is not very Eco when towing 8k it's getting very bad mpg - I'm averaging 60 to 65 mph some 70 not really pushing it - has plenty of power one torque zero issue there - impressed on towing power but MPG is -- will post tonight when I have exact #

I believe this is necessary because under the garage floor of many haulers is the fuel cell which is vented. You can't insulate and enclose the fuel cell area.

I've enjoyed your posts. I'm awaiting a Nitro 31fqsl as we speak.

Is the spare tire under the garage portion of the trailer? I know the nitro's is. I was going to enclose the underbelly but need to box around the spare tire.

Sounds logical and a great point but there is a lot of open space there should be some insulating I could do - my list of things is growing😊 solar system w bank of batteries, 2 more Tv's, possibly removable front jacks to clear my driveway, insulating garage, more LED marker lights, ooh can't forget to go thru all the stuff I just threw in the garage from my camper lol should be a busy month.........

I hear you. I have my shed full of everything from my last hauler and my work bench is piled high with boxed new stuff I've been ordering for the new one! Can' wait to get to work either. Less than a week to go for us and we will be starting a thread like yours....
