    Hey PushPop, I favor 2 Honda 2000i generators in parallel. You can use only 1 if you only need to power up a few electric devices or put them in parallel if you want to run your air conditioner. They are light weight (about 60 lbs each) so you can handle or move them around easily. Kenneth, at Grandview trailer Sales (GTS) favors the Chinese generator's that he sells and to be honest, they may be just as good at a lower price.

    In the real world, I bought an ONON Emerald 4000 as an option when I bought my HitchHiker in 1995. It works great and is easy to turn on from inside my RV, but it cost $4000 at the time and is a bit more noisy than the Honda's.

    Generators are nice when you are boondocking and need some power or need to re-charge your batteries. The light weight Honda's would be real handy around the house in bad weather or if you needed to run some equipment that was located away from the house. If you don't plan on running an air conditioner with the generator you may only need 1 2000 Watt Gen set. You can run almost all of your 30 amp appliances with 1 2000 watt gen with the exception of your AC unit.

    hmmm…I simply thought maybe DL was just proud of that Cummins (and I certainly couldn’t blame him) but judging by your post, maybe he’s running Mickey-Dee’s B100 in that big ole bad boy.

    I certainly plan on hanging around for a long time…so please expect lots of ridiculous questions. Hopefully Tex will take it easy on me since I’m a fellow Texan. ?

    Glad to hear we're on the straight and narrow again. I've been out of town and away from WIFI for a few days.

    Let's let this thread die before somebody else sees it! ;)

    Except here, there is apparently an active moderator. Thank goodness.

    Nope, not that bad. Only happens once in a great while. Most of the time, all are civil and understanding. Lots of kidding with each other and sometimes misunderstandings happen but most kiss and make up real quick...... ;)

    Hello...Tex??? I'm back! I TOLD you I was excited about my new (second-hand) Durango. I drug that thing all over SW Louisiana and E/SE Texas. It feels good to get out of that office and just get out and do something. Didn't kill a thing on my deer hunt (unless you're counting cold beer and time) but I had a great time just the same. Suprisingly...Just the opposite at the casino's, the ole craps table was good to me. Not to mention that good ole Zydeco music by my favorite, Mr. Wayne Toups. You ain't livin no kinda life if ya ain't heard Wayne Toups. And Tex...I'll update the profile asap.

    Re: oh please please please HELP

    Any Zydeco music is a relief compared to this high-pitched squealing they call country music nowadays. My dad used to take me to the deer lease because I could cook! And a whole lot of the time that's all they did was eat! Then I got my driver's license, and I was m.i.a. when he was goin' huntin'! ;)

    I know! What the heck happened to our music? I'm a George Strait superfan and I simply can't even listen to today's radio anymore. Bring back Waylon, Conway, Possum, and ole Gary Stewart. Nowadays, it's more rock-n-roll than country. Saddens my heart.

    I tried to update my profile but I guess I'm doing something wrong. I emailed tech support. I'll get it straightened out on the double. But in the mean time Paul, I'm Tony...and it's a pleasure to meet you.
