Yes, all the generators we have discussed are inverter types. And yes they are worth it for several reasons. The 2 main reasons for me are:
#1: Inverter type generators provide clean power. That is, the power won't surge when running out of fuel, starting up, or having mechanical difficulties. The power surge can harm the electronics in your RV.
#2: Contractor type generators are VERY noisy. Not only will it drive you nuts, you will be very unpopular with any neighbors you might have
Here's one article that talks about advantages/disadvantages: https://sites.google.com/site/genera...tergenerators/
As I stated earlier, my one EU2000i Honda will run both the coffee pot and the TV at the same time. It will also run the microwave and the TV at the same time. It will not run the microwave and the coffee pot at the same time though
For that you would need 2 running in parallel or a larger generator like the EU3000i.
Some folks buy a smaller, cheaper EU1000i which allows them to charge their batteries and watch tv. You might be able to run the coffee pot or micro depending on what their power consumption is.
All kinds of articles out there to educate yourself with. But 'YES' to inverter types and the rest boils down to your power needs and your budget.
