2oldman,

Thanks. I use load support on the hybrid inverter which allows me to do air and microwave at the same time.


Regards, Don
My ride is a 28 foot Class C, 256 watts solar, 556 amp-hours of Telcom jars, 3000 watt Magnum hybrid inverter, Sola Basic Autoformer, Microair Easy Start.

Cool. I also wanted the cute, light little 1000 to run my 850w charger, but alas, it won't do it. Very disappointing for a Honda.

Are you sure?

I made my own parallel cables to connect 3 different wattage generators. But then I like to live on the edge, and I hate paying $250 for something that's 2/3 of what I need, and I can do myself for about $30.


I'm pretty good making my own cables. Can you supply the specs for the connectors and the cable you used? Did you use welding cable for flexibility?

Standard 14 or 16 gauge hardware store extension cords cut to length. 30a socket, mounting box. Connect hots to hots, neutral to neutral. You don't need welding cable for 120v.

Obie,

I'd use #10 or as a minimum #12.

one or two 2200-2500 generators. One, sipping fuel to charge battery bank, possibly run one AC. Two will easily run one AC or microwave.

Smaller gens are much easier to move around and sip fuel.
