Hi folks, Hoping to stay at some national parks this summer and Walmarts on occassion. Any advice you can share about generators? Is it worth the investment? We'll be on the road for seven weeks going from eastern NY to Yellowstone Nat'l Park and around the 4 corners there and back. I'd appreciate any recommendations on a quiet generator that we can purchase and also advice on how to fuel it, run it, etc. etc. Complete newbie with this area and appreciate your experiences and good thinking.

We boondock a lot and AC and battery charging are our main needs for the generator. We have an on board 5500 watt generator and 50 amp service. We can go about 6 days on our grey tank with careful usage and our batteries (formerly gel, now AGM) can do that with a little charging now and then. In hot climates we turn on the generator and AC in the evening and the first one to get up to go to the bathroom turns it off. We have little stick up LED lights and two exhaust fans and know how to use them. It is amazing how little electricity you can do without without affecting your lifestyle drastically.
