check out the Yamaha EF-2400IS

This unit is a little heavier and a little more money than the EU2000, but it has the extra power to probably do it with one generator. And they can be run in parallel like the Honda. Check out this link for a propane/natural gas/gasoline capable generator. http://www.yamaha-propane-natural-ga...m/ef2400is.htm

OR for an EBay auction

What is needed to get the Yamaha to run on propane? Just a hose kit?

The dealer in this link specializes in setting up Yamaha generators for alternative fuels. That would be a good question to ask them.

The one big selling point is the Honda is quiet. It is the only point as a matter of fact. If you buy one of these others you will be cussed if you run it around anyone else.

Juel,
The Honda Inverter gens have "clean" power. The clean power is great for TV, computer etc.. The other non inverter generators are cheaper b/c they are much louder. Go to your local Honda dealer and get them to start the different types and make your choice.
We decided on the two Honda EU 2000 with a parallel kit. We had our house wired for a 30A hookup for our trailer and we also use our Honda's for our house backup.

The Honda i series puts out clean power. Could be a factor for long life of appliances, tvs, and computers.

. Using a siphon type device to take it out of the tank of the burb is a neat work around, but where do I put the gas fumed hose, the Suburban or the Safari?

Twink,
I just tried to siphon gas out of my 2500 Burb. The fuel filler tube has an "anti roll-over" ball. There in no way to get a hose around the valve.
If you are able to siphon let me know...
