Grandview Trailer Sa - 3/4/2007 2:27 PM Hello and welcome to the forum. Honda makes a 3000EU quiet generator that will run your AC and everything else. Sells around here from $1,650-1,795.00. The two 2,000 watt will also, but cost you more money. The parallel kit will cost you about $250.00 on top of the generators. One big advantage to them is transporting them. The 3000 weighs 138 lb. I know, I own one. I sell the 3000 Kipor generator for $1,250.00. It will also run everything in your trailer. It has a battery start, wheels and will run about 15 hours on a tank of gas.
So DL would two Honda's run 50amp? Like if I had the AC, microwave, HWH, and Fridge on then put some toast in the toaster. Would I blow something up?DL Rupper - 3/5/2007 3:59 PM I really like the 2 Honda generators because of the weight thing. When I first started Full-time RV'ing it wasn't a big deal, but now that I'm in my twilite years, 2 smaller portable Hondas are a much better deal than 1 bigger heavier generator. Also, when you don't need max amps/watts you only have to get 1 smaller generator out of your storage compartment.
hertig - 3/6/2007 1:10 PM A trailer which is designed to work on 30 amps 'requires' 120 volts x 30 amps = 3600 watts. A 4000 watt generator is actually only rated for 4000 watts 'peak' and has a long term capability of generally 3200 to 3800 watts depending on the generator. So a 4KW generator is 'perfect' for a 30 amp RV, and a 3KW generator 'can do it' with some care. For a 50 amp RV, you are actually talking about 2 50 amp circuits, so the 'perfect' generator for that would be 100 amps x 120 volts = 12KW. Of course, not many RVs really have 100 amps of toys in them, so can get by quite well on 8KW or even less.
