depends on WHAT the standard equipment is on the trayla...

not all units have a microwave, and some have ONE way water heaters or SMALL fridges.

while 50 amp connections are standard on big mohos and some big 5ers...

most travel trailers are 30 amp.

most rv parks have 30 amp.

some have 50 and 30.

there are many places where a 50 amp trailer would still only have access to 30 amp power.

rv parks often charge MORE for 50 amp connections...

most rvs and especially 'streams are a compilation of compromises.

light weight stuff, occasional use stuff, adequate utilities (if one is careful) and limited water supplies.

wiring/breakers in an rv are somewhat like HOUSE wiring...

generally with smaller capacity breakers (15/20/30 amps) and without 240V power.

many RV appliances can be run on gas or electricity and some of d'stuff does better on gas (fridge, water heater, cooktop, furnace)
__________

IF u r totally new to rv'n it might be wise to delay buying accessories till you sort out more of the issues.

otoh that's another one of the nice things about starting with ONE 2000...

it will do almost everything rv related and can be expanded later, IF the need develops.

IF u plan to summer camp in flo' cold air will be important, but there aren't many BOONDOCKING spots in flo'...

so hookups will be at hand in most of the commercial and state campgrounds so that AC can chill...

cheers

I have the Yamaha EF2400is and it is more then I need. It will carry my A/C all day long without missing a beat. It is light enough to move around and quite. My dad had the Honda 2000 and this will smoke it. It has a built in high surge output designed to start a 13,500btu RV air conditioner.

do too!

sorry, gentech, but honda 3k's will operate in parallel. matter of fact, just got a flyer from camping world on hondas...shows all kinds of parallel cables/kits, all it takes is $.
But, 2 3k's is a lot of extra stuff whereas the 6.5k will do whacha want. Onan made a TON of 4k units that are all over craigslist for cheap. gasoline, propane or Mr. Methane-louder, heavier, than the 2-2k hondas; probably louder, but lighter than a full-on 3k honda.
pay your $; make your choice
ol' bill
just chkd ptld, or cl and there are 3 4k onan for $350 to 750; a 6.5 diesel for $1k and even a 10k unit yikes! all cheaper than Hondas. must be loud, hey?
