I was thinking about making a home made gereraor with a 200 amp car alternator AND a 2000 to 5000 watt sine wave inverter I have the 6 hp engine its a honda to from a old pressure washer it couldrun the 120 volt items and charge the batterys at 12 volts at the same time ..if need be ... would that be feasable?
Make that 2 X 6VDC golf cart batteries in series to get 12VDC. A parallel connection between 2 6VDC batteries will still net you 6VDC, but double the amperage. If you use 4 golf cart batteries, you set them up in 2 series pairs and then parallel them. I am planning on doing just that when I get back to FL in the Fall.....giving me 4 batteries with 600 amp/hours of capacity.

On your generator idea.......maybe. I'm not an expert on the automotive side of things, but if you were going to go that route, I would just get a 2400 watt Yamaha or 2 2000 watt Hondas and use them to run your trailer and call it a day! They would run whatever you like, including a 13.5K roof air.

All though two 2000 watt pure sine inverters are not cheap ethier like 1100 bucks just for the inveters never mind 200 bucksf or the 200 amp alternator then four 6 volt cart batteries for the batteie bank.
