    With a heavy heart I have to take a generator with me this trip. The wife is having breathing issues and sometimes needs to use a nebulizer. It's to late to find a 12v one as we leave in the morning. I apologise to my fellow campers for the inconvenience and promise to use it only if she needs to use her nebulizer and to a minimum. Fortunately this is not a normal camping trip, it's our yearly company camp out so it's more of a party atmosphere.

    We always carry our 2KW Generator secured in the tail gate corner of my truck covered and locked truck bed.

    My camping setup is using a extended battery bank and we can can survive with all we want running when camping just using our batteries. Then at 8Am the next morning we will run our 2KW generator for about three hours when allowed to re-charge our 50% battery bank back up to the 90% battery state of charge so we can do this all over again for the next day/night off the batteries.

    Just about everywhere around here does not allow the running of the generator at public camping areas including the Natl Forest after 8PM at night until around 8AM the next morning. Hope you have better luck where you are going to be... Maybe you can get away with it since it is health thing...

    Just saying... Something to check on so you won't be surprised on the trip with your generator running all the time.

    Isn't it worse that it is your companies trip? The people that you aggravate are people you will need to deal with in the future.

    some people respect other people some don't. I hate for the 500k rig to come in get ready! They care for no one but themselves!!

    Well just got back. All went well and we didn't have to use the generator. Wife had no problem breathing though it was cold up there at about 5k ft. Batteries held up all weekend. But the furnace ran constantly so on the last morning I had to get up at 4am to change tanks. I guess my next project will be to change the regulator to a double tank auto switch over and a thermostat mod.

    Actually no, it’s better because it’s more of a party and everyone is more forgiving. Plus they all know my wife’s health problems.i just don’t like using generator for camping if I can help it.
