Generators

Want to get a gen. for our 2304KS Rockwood when we take our trip out west this June. Thinking about Champion 3100 remote start, or twin 2000 Champs. Anyone have one of these or input about this choice. It's mainly about the amount of use for the money, or I would probably get the Yamaha 2400 or Honda 3000.

I almost bought that one. I researched it pretty well. Even called Champion to inquire about high altitude jets etc... They seem to have good customer service and has very good customer comments. Tthat would be my choice for a China made generator.

There are allot of good choices out there. You have to decide what is important Noise, clean power, fuel efficiency, low price, weight (not on the RV on your body) I went with the Yamaha ef200si and got two for the times I need AC. They are campground friendly as well as Elk camp friendly.

They are up and comers in the rv world. You should see where or how close a service location is JIC.

And for 869$ you can get 2 2000 units- refurbished of course. Take one with you for the weekend or if planning on running a/c grab the other- only 45 lbs

I'm happy with this one, Westinghouse customer service is great and I was able to get a high altitude jet for it. I bought it for charging batteries and running misc things but to my surprise it handles the 13.5 BTU Coleman AC.

Whatever brand is chosen, make sure it is an inverter generator with "clean" power (true sine wave). The cheap construction generators will eventually ruin your electronics. And with just a few decibels increase in sound (according to the specs) makes a huge difference in actual noise.
