Re: eight kilowatts

If one has the place for it, another great multi-tasking use for the genset is a washing machine. When cruising, our Splendide is a luxury beyond words. We do not bother drying (which uses more water than washing), but cleaning up the clothing with real soap and fresh water is amazing. This is never done stand alone, only when using the gen for all other tasks too. I'd say the gen burns a few gallons per week. It's pretty inconsequential.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
