Hmm the videos didn't post.
I've been posting pics on message boards for years but I'm new at posting videos. I uploaded them to photobucket but they didn't link..... I'll try again in a bit.

o.k. that generator is made in a Chinese factory, who makes the same basic design with all kinds of different brands on them.
the first one of that style, was the Magna brand. since then there have been all kinds of clones of it, with many different brand names on it.
the factory will make it for anyone who wants to put their name on it.

it is an inverter generator though but you can't parallel it with another one.

Hopefully I won't need any parts but if I do it sounds like they shouldn't be hard to find.

Sorry, but I'd rather stay at the Marriott than hear that thing running 6-8 hours a day.

It might need Herk's generator box to help quiet it down some. You might want to see if he has a patent on it 1st .

Is is a nice size for that much power, plus the low $$.

OK, new question for your guys. Our first boon-docking trip coming up this weekend. We have a 2011 Wildwood with two 12v batteries. I inherited a small Honda 750w generator my dad used for years. Generator has a DC output I understand you can attach straight to the batteries for charging. Is it better (more efficient) to charge the batteries this way or to just take 110v into the trailer and let the converter do the charging?
Just the wife and I camping this weekend staying 3 days and 2 nights. 9000ft mountain camp so we'll likely be running the furnace at night. I'm guessing this will deplete the batteries by morning so charging will be needed.
Appreciate your thoughts
