The new inverter Gen sets have a pretty good output often better than the old style units.
I have seen the sine waves on the oscilloscope.
My Harbor Freight is OK with 10% ethanol.
They suggest running Stabil fuel treatment as well.
So far I am well pleased with the 2500 Watt HF generator.

Home depot has an Energy Storm Lifan Pure sine wave Inverter generator 3000 watt for half the price of a Honda and is as quiet as well You can also purchase extended warranty through Home Depot. The unit is Electric start with remote as well. I bought the 2600 and it runs the 13.5 AC with no problem on my HI LO. I have it lounge mounted on my Scamp 16

There must be tens of thousands of the Hondas out in the wild, bound to be some bad reports over the years. How many reports of any kind (good or bad) have you seen on that off-brand Duromax?. It may be a fine unit for the money, just saying.....

So much fun - the spell checker gives a false sense of accomplishment and no software jock has ever come up with a sense checker, AFAIK. That still has to be done by reading it over and over and over before hitting the button.

The reason why I asked, is because I want to get a gen. and I am wondering the best place to put it. In the TT or TV. It would fit in the cargo area in the Rav but I do not want the smell of gas inside. I would want 2000i 1st purchase then next year the companion. In the summer if we go, we will go to elec. hookup for the air. I do not know if carrying the gen on the tongue may be to heavy b/c i want to also have two LP cylinders. I am going to go to a Yamaha or honda. Carl

Carl, before getting a rolling bag for the Honda gen, I used a very large Rubbermaid container with a thick rubber mat on the bottom. Carried it in the Rav without much, if any smell. A 1 gal. Gas container fits in the there too.

I carry my Honda 1000 in either the RAV or the trailer.
There is a lever on the gas cap that closes the vent so no fumes escape.
An extra gas container ( one gal. ) is in my storage box on the back of the trailer.
