i've read these can last 8 hrs. with 1/4 load on 1-1/2 gals.----am i wrong or is this thing running on stardust (haha)?
The load on the generator would be very minimal so it should just idle along. I'd probably get a little 700 watter for the stove and a 2400 for the camper so I can run the AC if we're dry camping. The 700 watt inverter unit should run many, many hours at idle.
the Honda EU2000 is a great inverter/gen. a friend uses one for about 4 hrs every night 7 days a week 365 days a year.
i think he's burning a little more than a gallon a night. his saving in fuel over his old gen will pay for the gen in 6 months
i dont think one will run your campers ac. i think you need two with the cable that connects them.
all cheap inverters s u c k only by sine wave inverters!
as too hove long you can run it comes down to how big of a battery bank you have and how many amps x hrs your running it.
you will be surprised as too how fast your inverter will drain your bank.
you need a meter that tracks amp hrs (ah) removed and put back in to truly understand your batteries state of charge or discharge.[/quote]
Ya, the Eu2000 won't start a camper AC unit, but it would run it once started. The Yamaha 2400 has a surge feature that will start a 13,500 BTU camper AC unit. It's very popular with RVers for that reason.
