    Honda makes a 2000 watt generator for about $400. That should power a refrigerator and a small window ac unit for a few days.

    Get a 5500 watt at Home deport for 1 or 2 hundred more. Should power another portable AC, the house lights, TV, direct TV as well.

    Negative. Cheapest Honda branded generator I have seen is about $2000.

    However, my point was whole house is pretty affordable if you look around.

    Google Honda generators. Saw one for $387. Doing the kind of work you do I would be surprised if you didn't have one or more. Workmen use them on jobsites and I have seen people using them during disasters when the power is out,

    Link?


    I have several, but we rarely use/need them on jobsites anymore. We have battery powered tools for when we don't have power.

    Don't you use a small generator for your camper? A lot of people like the Honda for that because it is relatively quiet.
