vjls - 2018-11-13 8:47 PM go 5000watt or even 7500 if you can and go propane

 
 all of that is good advice if you want to spend more money than needed and have more hassle than necassary 





 
i paid 746.00 for my powermate 5500 watt  propane with wheels  its electric start or pull propane i do not consider tht expensive

 
Are you lifting your 5500 in and out of your trailer by yourself? I've looked at some and they are upwards of 150lbs +; that seems heavy to me.

not anymore i can not even lift a gallon of milk

but the 1 i have is portable with wheels   beforse sci  and before i got lq with generator we had portable 1 that we usesed i had a ramp plus my son who was little a would roll them in to trailer  the

I have a champion. It's a good generator, works for what I need but is heavy and also pretty loud. Good quality for the money, though.

3500 running watts, 4000 startup. I have a weekender and it runs everything great (air conditioning, heat, lights, water pump, fridge/microwave).

That Generator right there will run 99% of all LQ trailers on the Road

WIll be a very small smidge more noise than a Honda and about half the price.

I have a variety- the broke down Onan Microquiet 4000 that I am tired of throwing parts at, but it sure was nice when it worked. Led to me buying a Honda 3000 that worked for everything in my trailer except the AC (older AC with higher startup amps). So I ran it in tandem with a Honda 2000 I purchased next. Well a mouse chewed my starter cord and when I pulled, it snapped. So I replaced the string (that was a doozy). Well somehow along the way the dang handle came off later and that string sucked back up in there again. Then the husband lost a screw that I found later after we bounced from MS to LA for a barrel race and the dang thing wouldn't crank. I was stuck using the single Honda 2000 which was good for basics like charging the batteries on the jack, lights, fan, hot water heater or fridge. I didn't run two big items at once. It was HOT!!!! So I found another Honda 2000 and I have been using that pair lately because they both fit in my tack area below the saddles easy. That gave me time to tear down the 3000 as I believed the motor was locked up- nope. The missing bolt was lodged so as to prevent what I call the "dynamo" that actually makes the power from turning over. So literally nothing would turn due to that bolt. Now it is back purring like a kitten. But the 3000 will run my powersaver AC I had installed, battery charger, fridge, hot water heater lights. The pair of 2000's run everything as well. I have a friend who runs his entire trailer on the Harbor Freight 3500 model. If I were to buy a new generator. I would get the harbor freight one. VERY quiet. Good on fuel. My friends have had zero problems

you could have replaced your onboard for about the same money or less than all the honda portables you bought.
