Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

The 1000 weighs 27 lbs, and is small enough to pull in and out of my cockpit lazarettes easily (small 25' boat). The 2000 weighs double that, and must be bigger too. Doesn't cost much more though...

What can't I run with the 1000? Boat wise, I only really need to charge the batteries and possibly run the fridge, though even that I prob wouldn't bother with. I could even probably run a small 5000 but ac unit no?

House wise, the 1000 can power a fridge and some cfl lights couldn't it? Is it really that incapable?

Is 2000 watts really worth hauling all that extra weight and bulk?
