I have the 1KW Honda generator in use on my camper. I love it in that it
easily, has a handy 12 VDC charging output, and runs all night on the load
the furnace even on very cold nights. However, it also wipes out reception
my 3-22 MHz SW receiver, and does a number on AM broadcast as well. It
the bands with birdies. FM seems to be ok.
Speaking of Generators, I found a site for propane conversions and triple
fuel conversions for small generators.
I have 5 generators ranging from 30kw to 2kw. The 30KW Onan is propane
powered and I never have fuel issues.
All of the smaller generators are gasoline powered and every year, I fight
plugged jets or water in the gas on at least one of them. I am considering
changing at least one of them over to propane. I have a Generac 3500 and
the kit costs $82 dollars. Not too bad and once propane, it will be hassle
free. http://www.uscarbs.com check it out...kind interesting.
