Thanks for the good feedback.
Instructions can be offered on "how to use".
Suggestions can be made as to "what to use".
Only you can decide and program your useage desires.
A 45 amp converter draws 540 watts.
A 55 amp converter draws 660 watts.
A 60 amp converter draws 720 watts.
Add an efficiency factor of about 25 percent to those numbers.
That's the power consumption only if the converter is operating at 100 percent, which they never do for more than a very few minutes.
That amount of power consumption is far less than a coffee pot or toaster.
When in doubt choosing a generator, don't under rate what you may do. Time will tell you that you forgot something. Then your stuck with a generator that's inadequate.
If you want to enjoy, plan accordingly, but always add a "safety" or reserve factor, especially when it comes to using electricty.
