I purchased a generator from TSC, made in China. On sale they are around $300. Gander Mountain sells them too. It"s a 3500 watt RV genny. Very quiet, uses very little gas, the 110v RV plug is rated at 30 amps. I purchased an adaptor for the Plug to convert it to a covential 110 v plug. It will start a 3/4 hp deep well pump with ease. I use it to power a 4 peak hp electric chain saw. Does it with ease too. There are 2 110 v outlets, however they are only rated at 15 amps each and that makes the genny struggle to start the well and chainsaw.
If I ever need another genny, definately will go with an RV genny. It only weighs 100. Did I mention just how quiet it is?
