hi biker and welcome to the forums!
yes, many here buy a small genset for most issues...
and parallel 2 or go larger if wanting to run the air conditioner on gen power....
use the advanced search feature and search 'msrp' and limit the search to 'buyer guidelines' only...
then do some other creative searching, the price/discount issue is pretty well covered.
of course these discounts are buyer specific and model specific and related to supply/demand issues too.
all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.
we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
