We use a Honda 1000 generator plugged into our shorepower outlet feeding our ProSine inverter/charger. Works great. The Honda pumps in 32 amps, continuously for at least three hours (the longest we've tried). Our 120 amp charger lets me limit the amps it pulls from the generator by configuring a 'breaker size' on the setup panel -- not sure how effective this setup would be without that ability, as if the 'breaker size' is set too high, the Honda pops its circuit breaker.
Note that our Honda has DC output at 8 amps, which works fine, but why settle for 8 when you can get 32 via AC output and a charger? Not sure why Honda restricts it to 8 amps, when clearly more power is available.
