I was afraid someone would ask something like this! I don't know all the specs involved to give an honest answer. Will you be tempted to plug something else in?
I've seen a lot of inverter generators as I have camped (we usually dry camp). Folks with 1000W units tend to fire their temper. Folks with 2000W units tend to be happy campers. Those with 2600+ watt units can keep their cool with the camper's AC. Heck, even pop ups have roof ACs these days.
Except for weight and size, I personally prefer brushless conventional units. They are a lot cheaper as well.
no, I wouldn't need to plug anything else in at the same time as the stove. For me anyway this issue would be solved if I could calculate how many watt generator (inverter) that I would need to run just the stove reliably. I'm just falling short on the brains dept. on how to figure this out. I like the inverter type because of the smaller size,noise,fuel usage, and the ability to run safely my computer (all not at once with stove). Thanks for the help Gerry in educating me on this issue and really it doesn't seem to be that big of a deal,just need to size/oversize the generator correctly. Thanks again
