A lot apparently. There's a review on CW under that generator that says it's way louder than the Honda 3000 he used to own (and as loud as his buddies cheap Pep-Boys generator).

Spec is 58 dB but that's at 1/4 load. The Honda is 58 dB at FULL load (49 dB at 1/4 load).

All enlightenment will be greatly appreciated.
Your genset will not be plug compatible with your 30 amp cord. You will need an adapter between your camper's 30 amp RV plug and the generator's 13.3 amp outlet. Get a "dog bone" style that have a 15 amp plug on one end of a short cord with a 30 amp RV outlet on the other end. Skip the "hockey puck" style one piece adapters as they tend to heat up.

And yes you can run your furnace on battery with no problem. If you keep the temps low and conserve lighting, you can get at least two nights from a full charge. If you keep the temps in the warm range, count recharging every day.

All three of my RVs, one TT and two 5ers, have been capable of cycling the furnace off and on all night on battery power. Using the original deep cycle battery. I run gen a few hours before bedtime to recharge and run off battery again at night. Won't hurt to try it.



[QUOTE="grb2980;475884"]Not sure what your TT is. I may be overlooking something in your post.

First of all I doubt that you'd be able to run a furnace off a 12V battery. I'm pretty sure you'll need some source of 120V to run it. Therefore the Honda comes into play.
