RE: What size of generator do you have?

.. the Champion unit from Costco that's rated at 3500wt running/4375wt peak. I think this should be plenty to run my A/C. Cheers! ~rsAnd plenty of racket to drive you and the neighbors crazy.

RE: What generator size works best?

I read a 3k watt generator would run an AC but could burn the compressor when it kicks on, thas mainly why I am looking at bigger. Many of us have 2- 2Kw Hondas. I do. When paralleled they're run your air with no problems. And if you don't need all that power just use one. They're quiet (quieter) and should last you a lot of years with proper care. Most people can carry one without breaking their backs.I really don't know much about the inverter other than it works.Do you run your refridge going down the road?

RE: using furnace while driving

Guess the OP missed the recent thread on traveling with propane on. Give this one time. The fueling thing has already come up.

RE: What generator size works best?

So ALL electric with no gas. Because of this I have a 50 amp connection. The reason I feel of need a generator around 5k watts.Actually, 50a power is 10,000 watts. You can see the downside to all electric when you're not hooked up. You've not yet mentioned about batteries and inverter, so I'm still in the dark on that. Dry camping is real nice having an inverter...the job for the generator is mainly battery charging. Any 5kw generator I'm aware of is noisy as all get out, so, as suggested earlier, I'd go with a 3kw Honda. If you're made of money get two and parallel them. I don't know what's connected on the 2nd leg of your 50a service. That's usually another air. An electric stove and oven are really going to consume power.

RE: What generator size works best?

I originally missed the "ALL electric" comment. Sorry about that.I've asked about that.. but so far no answer. I don't know what an 'all electric' trailer is.

RE: GPS Why not a smart phone?

Many people put GPS on the dash so they don't have to look down and away from the road.

RE: Turned off by campgrounds

More reasons to get batteries, solar and an inverter and boondock. I don't care for RV parks either.

RE: HD question

The photo shows my Dish 1000.4 dish that's a bit larger than the DTV Slimline. The tripod is a modded standard roof mount that sells for around $30.I'm glad you got by cheap. The Slimline is finicky, and needs a strong, stable and LEVEL pad to mount. I think I would find it difficult to adjust your style of tripod to be plumb and stay there. My dish won't stand 50mph gusts. That's a bit of a stretch.

RE: GPS Why not a smart phone?

I am old and cheap and would like an option other than DW's phone without having to buy anything.Live a little.

RE: Propane..unlawful to have fridge on while moving

Seriously, this horse has been so thoroughly beaten that it's nothing but a few broken, dusty bones...but apparently nobody gets tired of beating it...even when it's not the real topic of discussion.

RE: search failure?

Thanks Tom. I thought it was perhaps it was just gagging on shorter words. I can find 'knew' and 'ever' and 'opinion' and 'search'.. all kinds of words. Seems odd that 'never' was deemed unimportant enough to be a non-indexed word.

RE: What generator size works best?

I don't know what kind of rig you have.. not sure how you ended up with an All electric unit and no generator. Is this a 50a coach with an inverter?

RE: HD question

I'm sure it can be done cheaper. I just wanted a setup that wouldn't blow over in wind and would stay aimed where I aimed it. I don't want it on the roof.

RE: What generator size works best?

I hope that beach is at the ocean so the waves will drown out the racket of a 5kw generator.

RE: HD question

I guess you'll have to cough up a couple C-notes and learn to aim a Slimline.
