First off, How much camping are doing in a year? if u just want to recharge batteries, small gen set 1000 watts min., u want to use appliances while batteries charging, 2000 watts (plus), does he want a gen set just have one, this sight will recommend a power station to run your neighbor hood, look at what you r going to use, I suggest you go down to tech thread and ask about an Invervter and solar,I have both, a good solar panel with a good controller will keep your batteries topped off, change out your batteries to 2 golf cart batteries, and you will happy, if you do weekend trips batteries will last with conservative usage.We very seldom take our gen with us anymore, solar panel on a dolly so we can move it along with a 30ft power cord for charging has worked well for us. again ask questions, what are your limits, ow long will u be gone ect., ect., good luck rusty
This July 2013 snow and more this year
this is Mineral Creek
In Silverton waiting for fireworks, all dry camping; boondocking is our favorite though
JiminDenver we have a open range 2012 303bhs and I will check for certain but I do believe we havs the Domectic 13.5. Fan runs for about 30 to 45 sec and you can here compressor kick in and start to run. like I said the Yammi does struggle, but it does start.
Hi JiminDenver, FWIW my 2 cents, my wife and I camp in Silverton and surrounding areas, Molas lake little Molas lake,Lizard Head, ect,you get the picture. we have a Yammi 2400, rejetted for high altitude to get the fuel efficiany and stop fouling plugs.
with everthing turned off and I mean everthing the Yammi struggles to start 13.5 a/c, but it does and runs the ac for a couple of hours, now we bought the champion 3500-4000 a year later and took with us next time we went up, and we are up there about every 2-3 weeks. that gen set runs everything without having to turn anything off, now you cant run the micro and a/c at the same time but it will run it. and on another note we rarely run the a/c up there, there always seems to be a nice breeze and shade
Buying a Champion as a back-up for a Yammy! LOL! Now I've seen and heard everything! At that price you might as well buy another back-up for the back-up.I did. the yammy won't pull the load at high altitudes it kills it,10,000 ft plus.(coffee Pot, tv,dvd player, ect. ) even with the high altitude jets installed. the champ runs all that's needed and runs fine. glad to have them both, no complaints while running the champ. most want to know where i got it!!!!:B
