Several hours?????

Far as I'm concerned all you need to do is run it till it's fully warmed up and fully loaded for 10 minutes or so. I'm not going to listen to the generator for several hours just to exercise the unit. I also only shot for every couple of weeks.

Of course it will be summer soon, running it wouldn't be a problem.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
