I do not own a portable generator and don't know much about them - but I hear that noise is a big issue with them.

Question - is it possible to install a larger muffler on them that what the manufacturer provides?

Just wondering and asking

RC cars running through my camp site. Can never find the driver. I think the driver is on an Iceberg in Alaska. If I only had a remote on the same frequency... that would really fake 'em out.

Mine PP is that I'm a hermit when camping. I expect people to some what invade my space as some CG's are pretty cramped. But as a cop I really dont like people much (you other cop's on here will know what I mean)

I do two forms of camping, I either camp to veg out or I'm using my camper as a rolling hotel room to stay in while we spend our days at the local sites ect. When I'm doing the theme park thing I dont have fires we usally eat out and I return to the CG enter the RV and thats the last you see of us till we emerge the next morning to head back to the theme park. Between my A/C unit and closed windows I rearly am disturbed by barking dogs ect.

But when I go to veg out I spent alot of time around the camp fire drinking a few beverages and I hate it when people stare at me.

This past weekend we were camping and a lady sat at her picnic table for 20 mintues or so just staring at me. That drives me nuts. I was trying to hook up new LED awning lights and everytime I looked up at her, there she was just staring at me. I felt like a science expriment. I like to check out peoples camp sites to see if I can learn things by how they are set up but to just sit there and stare at me was getting under my skin.

I have a retired next door nieghbour at home that watches my family like a survallance camera. All the people on our street call her the mayor of Webster Street cause she knows everything that is going on. I just want to be left alone. Thats why I dont have a Face Book or twitter account I dont dont care what you are doing and I dont want you caring what I am doing!!!

Actually the muffler is only a small part of the noise. Much of the noise comes from the engine noise and not the exhaust noise. Good quiet generators have an enclosed case as oposed to the "construction" generators that have an open case. I started out with one of the louder generators and was not happy with it. My current generator is a Honda EU3000is and it is very quiet.

Couldn't agree more! I like camping to get away from it all which is mostly why I boondock.
