I paid an extra $100 to get a Dual fuel 2000 gen. (Champion) so I would not have to worry about running it for it looong stretches of non-use. I justified getting it because we had had a few PG&E shut downs (had one today!but only 2 of the scheduled 5 hour outage. Just as I took it up to the back deck to plug in the frig (2 hours in), the lights came on! The frig would have been fine for five hours... but I wanted to use it (for the first time after it’s break in and 1st oil change) to justify it’s existence. Lol. Especially since I recently got a Grp 31 AGM 105 AH battery for the pup and it should not even get near 50% SOC for our usual 3 day trips. PG&E foiled me, but in an OK way this time.
