Tried running the a/c with convection, but that really didn't work, but the microwave does, so that is really good for dry camping. Quiet & the remote feature is awesome; plug in, go to bed, wake up hit the button & coffee! Oh yeah, this generator is ideal.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Sound Quality, Nice Design, Easy Installation
Cons: sputtering when turning off

Arrived with damaged tube frame

The unit arrived in a timely manner. Removed the shipping packaging and found that the tube frame is bent where the wheel connect to frame. That causes the wheel to run crocked making it harder to pull the unit. Will use as is since I only use it for back up power.. Fired it up, started easy and ran good. I think it was a good buy since it performs same adequate functions a much more expensive units
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: frame damaged

Can't really evaluate because it arrived with a broken end mount. I followed instructions to cut box away and once I discovered the broken mount I called manufacturer. They sent me a replacement part which requires 22 steps to install! (Remove fuel tank, disconnect electrical etc.. I've decided to return to Home Depot once I get the box all taped back together. Hope they'll accept it for refund!! I'm afraid if it was dropped hard enough to break the mount, there may be other problems down the road......

This Generator is fairly quiet. i don't have alot of experience with them but it is compact and the muffler has bolts at the output so i could put on a after market "super muffler attachment" if i had to run at nite or so. It does run very clean and the remote does work to the specs they say even through a warehouse building. The only downside i have seen is that there was not a complete axle and the bolts they used were not coated to resist rusting. Since i expect it to go on the ground with mud and water every so often.replaced with stainless steel all thread and all stainless steel bolts. A good option they left to is that the antenna is threaded so if you want better range with the remote you could put on a larger antenna also they have a switch shutoff on the battery terminals so if you store it for a while the battery won't die fast by being kept ground by the generator.
