I liked my Honda 2000
It looks like you are now in the market for a different generator.
I never had a problem with my Honda 2000. I could even run the roof a/c on my TT if I not only turned off all loads, I also turned off the converter. If I left the converter on then the a/c would start once but when it cycled off/on it would trip the Honda breaker.
Many people do not like the price of a Honda or Yamaha.
$950/8 years = $120/year. I still have it. If it lasts 20 years then that will be $50/year.
The Honda is not the cheapest around. I don't think the Yamaha is all that cheap either.
I got the Honda instead of the Yamaha because I can carry it with one hand while the Yamaha requires two hands. I can handle weight on my side but if that much weight is in front of me then I might throw out my back.
I know, I know, too much information. I apologize.
