Inverter Generators

We would like to purchase two small inverter generators, parallel for camping.... We are hoping for units that are quiet for fed and state parks. Ideas? Thank you

I just got an AI Power from Costco. 2300 watts starting and 1800 watts running. Comes with everything you need for 30 amp power. And it comes with parallel hookups. $499.00 unless you catch it on sale. It has a number of features I really like, such as a fuel gauge, an LED bar meter that tells you how much power you're drawing, and a gauge that tells you voltage, frequency and hours. Hard to beat for the price.

Ideal generator

The ideal portable generator would be dual fuel, have 2000 running watts and a remote start, and be easy to hook up in parallel. Too bad. No such thing.

I use a Wen 2000i (gas inverter with manual start) and will add a second one of something like it and a parallel kit, later on, if I need to run a/c.

Iíve heard from a few people about crappy power at parks and RV camps and wonder how often people find they canít run their air conditioner from the 30A outlet. Iím still pretty new at this and have never even tried out my air conditioning except at the dealership.

It all depends on what you want to run at once and how much you want to spend.

Champion generators have a good track record and a 3 year warranty.
I am quite pleased with mine.

Just bought a Champion 2500 inverter/generator dual fuel. I really like the dual fuel capability. Champions have a great reputation and a even better customer service reputation. I found out after Amazon/UPS lost my inverter twice. I called Champion to see if it was a drop ship item and they went to bat for me.
Good company!
