Yes. And I, and all your neighbors, will thank you.
We have a Yamaha 3000 for the camper since we dry camp all the time and run air conditioning when it gets hot while boondocking. The air conditioner is louder than our generator. I have to remember to shut it down when quiet hours come since I can't hear it from inside the camper.
We also have a 600 dollar 6500 watt contractor generator to power the house when the power goes out here as it does some times during ice storms. When THAT baby runs the folks in the next neighborhood over know we are on generator power.
