Before going to the expence of a onboard gen set, make sure you really want one. When in the marina you have shore power
, when at anchor
, with solar
you would be able to power everything except AC. With a 2000 w honda
generator you can run one AC unit and have backup power to charge batterys if needed. With my little honda
I can run the AC, which I have done a grand total of one time on a hot July night, and then only because I wanted to see if it would do it. The problem with more equipment
is everything becomes more complex and keeping everything running means more problems. It it were me, I would do everything possible to keep from adding a heavy, and expenisive dudad.
