So last week we got a portable generator. Cost was 380 bucks on amazon, free shipping. It is a 2000 W, with 1600 W running.
We tested it today in it is awesome! It comes with paralleling cables, spark plug removal tool, 30 amp adapter for RVs, etc.
So our van, a 1985 Dodge Xplorer 228 camper van, based on the B350 1 ton got plugged into the generator after starting it, and we tried to run the RV AC, Dometic Penguin II, 11k BTU, with the optional EasyStart soft starter. We wanted to see if it works aaaaand... it does!
Running it with Eco mode off, started the RV AC, on max, then put the generator in Eco mode. It still runs. Automatically turns off the Eco mode when the AC compressor starts to kick in. Really happy with this add on! Now off to dry camping!!! van
For this price, it is a great add on, and if you want 4000 W, just parallel two of them, for less than 800 bucks, and no, I am not a salesman for them ha!
By the way, we got a Field&Stream double sleeping back, 35F, on sale on Dick´s Sporting Goods online, for 39 bucks! (So we ended up getting two of them!) yay

Doing some more work on this grill project. So much tape to get the look I’m after should come out cool. Got some 1/8” smoked plexi for some light covers as well
