We used a 700w generator and found it most adequate for simple battery recharge. We use rechargeable LED lanterns for both inside and outside and and recharged those at the same time (via the outlets in the camper) as we did the house batteries. While we could easily last a couple of days at a time, we found a daily charge would only take about 2 hrs to top off all the batteries.
Camping at anywhere from 6k to 10k ft elevations we often needed the furnace during the night. We had no problems keeping the charge level up with just a couple of hours a day recharge. Changed over to the larger unit when we started camping more in the desert and needed the A/C. Now that's "Glamping"
