    Just purchased a small (21') Itaska motorhome. One AC. No generator.

    What generator should I buy? Thanks in advance, Barry.

    Buy one with the neutral bonded to frame if it's for stand alone use

    A very quiet one! Honda and Onan are a good place to start. Jake

    Your a bit far away from me, Del. I live in Illinois. But thanks.

    Barry: Any generator that Honda or Yamaha produces will fit your needs. They are exceptionally quiet and efficient. My 1st choice would be a Honda. Ed

    If you have a microwave and a generator you need plenty of snot. trouble is the quiet ones are either low powered or pricey.

    I have 5500 watts and the air shuts down if I start the microwave.

    Starting load is a lot more than running consumption.

    Does anyone offer a portable, approx. 10kw, that can be run on a 20 pound propane tank as used on a gas grille? I hate storing gasoline. Jim
