    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.

    So I have a question. I have a bottle of bleach/water mix that I use to disinfect stuff around the house. Whenever it sits for say a day the first few sprays are all brown or red but just really off colored. Why? Is it reacting with the plastic in the tube that it comes out of? What is causing it to do that?

    It’s the iron in the bleach that oxidizes. Rust basically. You’re welcome. Thanks google.
