Generator Recommendations

I'm looking into a generator for my Forest River Heritage Glen 302Fk for use when no external power is available. What are your recommendations.

Here are the two portable generators I'm looking at. I can't decide.

Or
Honda EU2000i Model Info | Super Quiet 2000 Watt Inverter Generator | Honda Generators
Hope those work

You are going to get a 101 different answers here , it all depends how much you want to spend and loud of a gen you want. My opinion is ( and its my opinion ) if you can afford it go with either a Honda or Yamaha, the size with depend on what you want to run. Good luck and wait for all the different answers.

I have a storm chaser 5500 that in my opinion is way to big and way to heavy to mount on the rear of the TT. Looking for something a little smaller but will run appliances.

Put your storm chaser 5500 in the bed of the truck?

To the OP.

1. How often will you use this each year?

2. What appliances do you plan to run with this?

Both the Honda and Yamaha in the 2000 watt range will handle most of the power required with very little noise. I got two Yamaha 2000si and the paralleling cable, they work great and are quite and use very little fuel. Honda and yamaha are both $$$
