I use the Honda EU2000i. I carry it (along with the gas can, electric cables, etc.), in a large plastic container in the back of my TV, locked under a Leer cap. For me, it's a good arrangement.

I've got a Generac RV Quiet Pack mounted on a small garden trailer. It runs on propane and will power up eveything in the trailer. It fits in the bed of my TV. The Honda is a good choce if you don't need full power.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

I have a 25FB, and travel with a pair of Honda 2000's. They work well and are dependable. I carry them in the back of my Suburban.

Your generator should meet your power requirements, rule # 1 is that you can't have a generator that's too big!

My solution is 3 generators:

#1 is a Yamaha 2400, that is set up to run on propane for when I think I'll want to run the AC.

#2 is a Yamaha 1000, just for some extra juice when the solar panel isn't quite keeping the batteries charged

#3 is an El cheapo, extra noisy Chinese generator when I need to drown out obnoxious neighbors.

Do you need 2 Honda 2000's or 1 Honda 3000 to run AC? Or will one Honda 2000 do it?

Either way.. I prefer a 3000i but, it's a heavier brut than 2-2000i. You decide.

Yes, you do. One Honda 2000 will run everything else, but it takes two to run the AC or heat pump.

I think that it would really look cool on the roof rack of your Suburban. Plus it would be properly ventilated.
