Camping Northern NM Rio Costilla

Hello All,

We spent some time fly fishing the Rio Costilla again last week and took our A122BH for a very enjoyable weekend. The days were warm but not unpleasant, nights were cool, dry and bug free and best of all the fishing was fantastic! Here are some pictures from last year at this same spot:

Fly Fishing The Rio Costilla

The fishing was great. This is a small stream with small trout, but they will readily take a small nymph or copper john floated downstream with a strike indicator. It's a great spot that not too many people know about it. Camping is excellent with lots of space between campers, no bugs, clear cool nights and great views if you are OK with no electricity and such. Our Honda 2000i provides all we need to be comfortable and have nice amenities.

Can you run the a/c and all other appliances with your Honda generator?

How much noise does it make. I am researching generators, I live in Florida and a generator can be great to have. Also... What do you think about the Honda generators that can be run on propane ?

The 2000i and other nominally 2000 watt inverter generators (my Champion, for ex--http://www.powerequipmentplus.com/prdSell.aspx?Name=Champion_73536i_1700_Watt_Invert er&gclid=COaj8aqJ67cCFZFcMgodhiUAow) can run every 120 volt appliance in the camper EXCEPT the CoolCat. The compressor in the CoolCat draws too much current. [Paste giant frown here] Both the Honda and my Champion are quiet as generators go. The Honda is slightly quieter, by a decibel or two.

We are currently on a cross country trip with our A122S and visiting some National Parks with no hookups. We brought along a Honda 2000i generator and have found it to run the AC unit just fine. We have found the Honda to be very quiet compared to some other brands & noticed others with Yamahas that were just as quiet. I helped a neighbor lift a beast of a 4000 watt genny out of his truck and was very happy with my Honda. He wound up borrowing mine after his wouldn't start (brand new, too) and commented how quiet the Honda was.

Of course, the campgrounds limit the generator hours, but we haven't found that to be a problem yet. As we are passing through Arizona & South Texas now we are only looking for campgrounds with electric (111į yesterday in Phoenix in the TV thermo. But it was a dry heat. Haha).

Now that is news to me. I'm glad you saw this thread and took the time to reply. I've been taking the conventional wisdom of others on the Genny/CoolCat issue. It may be that the Honda has just enough oomph to handle the starting current on the compressor. My Champion is around 1800 watts, just a touch les than the Honda, and may not be able to handle it. I'll have to give it a try. If it does work with the Honda that will handily justify the price difference.

Are you blogging your trip? I'd like to follow it if you are.

We had hoped to post frequently on our trip, but found internet capability on our smart phones very limited in National Parks we visited. We are not real tech savvy sorry to say.
