Default New 265RBSS can't wait!!

We have been lurking on here for about 3 months trying to learn as much as possible. Most of our trips will be long weekends within 200 miles of home. We run retriever field trials and will be dry camping most of the time.

We have not bought a generator yet. Im thinking about 2 Honda 2000's run parallel. Will this be enough wattage to run the 13.5 BTU AC and tv as well as the microwave?

I did have the dealership install a second battery as well as a generator rack that I saw on the some of the FF Xtras.

Any tips on dry camping would be apperciated.

I have a Honda 3000 and it runs the AC & TV no problem. I just switch off the AC for the couple of minutes it takes to run the microwave. So 2 Honda 2000's should be plenty to run the AC & the TV for sure, but you'd have double check the wattage to see if it can handle the AC & microwave at the same time.

One thought on the 2000's though, they might not be able to run the AC all night without refueling.

I have the Honda 2000's (pair) and they run everything just fine in my XT276 with no power shortage. Plus, they are really, really quiet.
