The ice fishing hut ALONE would be worth the Hondas, but the Champion should be fine. Just do it.

i was gonna mention the same thing (my 20amp garage outlet runs my 15k ac,fridge, and converter fine)

but it would sure suck to get there and it NOT!

I bought the HY2000Si and it has been good to me so far, will start my 13.5AC and ran it for like 5 hours one day to see if it would fail and it did not.

One of the many lables is (Wildfire). We bought many of these and sold them for (Emergency Power Outages)! They start & run very well,if (Properly) stored and maintained they will last for a (Long) time! BUT- they are NOT (Quiet!!). They are NOT Honda knockoffs. Big spread in (DB-ratings)! Youroo!!

I have a Champion 3500 watt with the 30 amp RV outlet and it powers the A/C, the refrigerator, the inverter, the big screen TV all at the same time just fine. I'll shut the A/C off for 10 to 15 minutes to let the wife use her hair dryer. It runs at 65 decibels and is Not too noisy with the A/C on.
The best part is it only cost me $299 new about two years ago, Oh, and has not had any problems.
