I had an open frame generator when we first started RVing, it was rated somewhere around 70db and I thought I had looked it up somewhere and it was below the max for national parks. I bought a Yamaha because I got tired of hearing that thing run so I can only imagine what my neighbors that had to listen to it thought. Mine is only a 2400 watt generator as when we are in the national parks or where ever without hookups there is no air conditioning. I bought this size so when we have power outages here in NM, I had enough power to run my boiler and fridge.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.
