Gosh, thanks, guys for your expert advice!
What a useful thread! Would that I had known about you folks and this forum when we first got our Bambi.
Re: camping in the dark.... Oh, OK, fair enough. On the other hand, our unit does not come with a microwave, we don't use a hair drier, if I got more appliances I would have no place to store them in a 16-footer, &c. (If we needed that stuff we would probably have opted for a bigger trailer on Day One.) I guess our main sticking point with our generator (which works fine, no problems) is that we still don't like the sound and gas fumes; and most NPS campgrounds won't let you run them at night or early in the morning when our power needs would be greatest.
But this is just a very minor quibble in light of your gold mine of terrific information!
