Publisher Review: I used the Powerhouse PH2100PRi this past summer and felt this was a very nice generator for the money. Unit weighs 67# and would fit nicely secured in the back of a truck or the tack compartment of your horse trailer ( bring it outside to run it). We ran it under quite a load and while it got fairly noisy when using microwave, running fridge and lights we realized that the unit was rated at 20 amp service and our living quarters requires a 30 amp service. It still handled the load and cooked our meals. You also have the ability to parallel with another unit (kit sold separately). Unit is available at: Camping World and other RV outlets. See website for dealer nearest you.
