This gennie is sold all over the place under a lot of different names. There are a few minor differences in features, but they are all obviously made by the same Chinese mfr. I couldn't resist one on sale at Farm and Fleet for $89. It runs fine, but took some tweaking to get the speed right for proper voltage output under load. It's fine for running a power tool in a remote area. It is not good for electronics. It is a very basic, non-inverter, old technology unit. It is pretty loud. It is basically a throw-away if parts are ever needed.

The furnace fan draws quite a bit of power, enough to run your battery right down in a couple of hours. The water pump is only run intermittently, so the overall power draw can be handled.

Thus, in order to have heat in the winter I and many other boondockers use a propane heater such as the blue flame heater by Procom.

Also, two stroke engines really are the devil's work as far as environmental impact is concerned.
