Does anyone use a Predator 2000 generator in their RV? if so, what does it run and what is you opinion of it.  Harbor Freight has it on sale for $450. Yes, no? I have a 26' TT, what will it run. What will it not run?

It will not run the air conditioner and may not run the microwave.  Switch the water heater to gas and everything else will run normally.  If you want air conditioning, buy two of the generators and a parallel kit.

From what I have heard, they seem to be a decent generator, but, like said above, will not run your AC.
You can get 2 and a parallel kit and that should run your AC.

Just a suggestion, but I would buy the Champion Power equipment units, similar features and a similar price, but a 3 year warranty instead of 90 days. Parts, should you need them, are also much easier to order through Champion.

Parallel kits available

As stated it should run all but AC.....but not at the same time!   IE: no hair dryer while defrosting that bacon in the micro for breakfast.

I'd love to hear feedback on this thing - loudness etc.   I have a Honda 2000 but rarely use it.  Just change the oil once a year and run out the carb each season....
