I'm happy with the Westinghouse 2400i. It's the same size as the rest of the suitcase generators but 400 more watts and easily run my ac in econo mode. $619.

Then there'd be no need for any new threads about pretty much anything now would there?

If money is not a factor, I doubt you will beat a Honda.

Well ya might have stated that in first place about elevation. Not all fact then you get the comments. Later RJD

Well i ordered a champ 3100 electric start [i hope i did the right thing] o well it is a done deal . my next question is a technical one. can in an emergency situation two inverter generators that are not of the same power out put or brand be put in parallel with a DIY parallel harness for 30 amps that plugs into the Edison 115/15/20 amp connectors of each gen set[i know ] with a 30 amp tt-30R. will the gen set sinc together? do not forget we are talking about EMERGENCY SHTF type of situation

Use a Yamaha 2000. Could get away with a 1000 but the price was $100 difference with rebates at the time of purchase. Didn't want to go to the 2400 or larger

Never use the AC. Removed the microwave. Have 300 watts of solar and two 6 volt 220's so can go multiple days even without sun. Gen only gets run after 3 days of rain. Like to keep it portable and quiet. If it never comes out of the back of the truck all the better.

I'll give a +1 to the Champion 3100. Not that Hondas or Yamahas are bad, but just not worth the extra bucks. 10 years ago, they were, but not today.

Can't answer your question about paralleling 2 different units together, but what would you be trying to run in that scenario?
