  2. Maybe we can get the guys together at Mercer for some antics
     
  3. Yea, I think thats what were gonna have to do. We need to get something put together. Been too long!

    CB, I just bought a toyhauler with an on board onan 4k generator. Just curious on yours what size it is and if it will run your A/C. My generator shuts off when the A/C compressor kicks on. Its a 15000 BTU A/C so I'm thinking 4k might be borderline. I haven't got to mess with it much as its been too cold for the thermostat to let the a/c kick on but the guy I bought it from let the thing sit for 2 years and only used the generator once. The next time I play with it I'll be adding a hard start capacitor to see if it will run the a/c that way....

    Yes.
    I've been in the Fire Service for 34 years, and can tell you that my Department has Honda generators, and we spec them for a reason. I currently have no need for one, but if and when I do, it will be a Honda or I won't own a generator.
    My .02. As usual, YMMV.

    I have an older Honda EM650 generator that was retired from fire service. The thing still works awesome, have to use devices that take up to 160v input because it does put out a lot of juice. Fires every time first pull no longer how long it's been sitting.

    Not as quiet as the newer Honda inverters, BUT it's not obnoxiously loud either.

    Honda 2000.
    Several Harbor Freight units at my field now. They work, but are LOUD.

    I have a Yamaha 2000 that works great but it's to heavy for me to carry. I don.t need 2000 watts to run a fan or charge batteries. Wished I could find a quality 1000 watt generator that doesn't weigh more than 10 lbs.
