You don't have to go the H&Y route to get a dependable quiet inverter generator.
Quiet cost more bt it doesn't have to break the bank.
Champion, Boliy, Smarter Tools and others make ones that have received excellent reviews.
Yes, some of them have but they are not as good as the Honda or Yamaha-ha's. Unfortunately not everyone has an extra $1600 to $2400 laying around. Many here "broke the bank" trying to get the trailer they wanted and now realize that a genset would be nice.

I just happened to see that cheap gen so thought I would mention it. I didn't research it but would have before buying one. Turns out I didn't have to, it was done for me.

Solar or generator or a combination of the two,
I have a 560watt solar/inverter system with 435ah AGM battery bank. I run everything 24/7 except in hot summer you still need shore power or generator for A/C units.
Solar is convenient and silent. A lot of parks won't let you run a generator so with enough solar and battery bank it's not an issue. Weight of solar panels and batteries and components can also be an issue for some.
