    Hi all I have a 2020 mpg cruiser 2550rb
    Looking for suggestions for a generator/invertor
    I’m from Ontario Canada so can’t do harbour freight

    want something to run the trailer when no power available at provincial parks, something that’s pretty quiet and won’t break the bank

    thanks

    Do you know your power requirements? The big one being, do you expect the generator to run the AirCon?

    First Welcome to the Portal from North Bay. Please check out the Rally Section for info in this years Rallies (that is if, camping is permitted and if you can manage to get reservations) .

    Honda, Yamaha, are the big 2.. then you have firman, Boily (sp?) , champion inverter gensets..

    As mentioned, the big thing is are you going to want to run the AC,? If so then you're looking at a 3500 watt genny at minimum..

    Fridge can be run on propane, which not only is more efficient but also cheaper then gas in the generator, which you wouldn't be able to run outside if designated times at Provincial Parks.. <-big reason my 11kw generator stays home (bought to power the house).

    A 3000 watt inverter generator would likely cover your needs. Those are $600 or so US. That's what, $800-900 in Loonies?

    If no A/C, a 2000 watt inverter generator would cover lights and TV. If ditching the TV, 200 watts of solar and a large 12v battery would run all the 12v stuff for a few days.

    If I had AC and had any chance of needing it, I would go for a Champion 3500 watt inverter genny. If no AC (I have no AC) any 2000 watt inverter genny would do nicely. I have a 2000watt genny for my pup.

    As mentioned , if running a Genny in a P.P.you would be limited to just certain times , i don't know but some parks might not allow them at all and you'd definitely want something quiet . Honda or Yamaha
