    I got a WEN Super Quiet 3800 genetator that runs my A/C, microwave and water heater. It costs less than 1k. It does weigh 100 pounds, but has wheels and a handle, so easy to move around. There is nothing that weighs 60 pounds that will do what you want.

    Looks like a good little unit.
    Good price for that power range.

    I got a Powermate 1200 (GENERAC) for about $400
    Its a quiet copy of the Honda 1000

    A generator down here in Mexico is a definite must have. September is peak hurricane season and power outages aren’t that rare.
    We have 12 solar panels on our new house which is great but we don’t have a battery system.

    Would be smart to get a dual fuel generator as propane is a very common fuel source for cooking and hot water.

    Seems to me I saw a dual fuel unit on sale at Costco earlier this year, perhaps a little larger than the one Blackford is wondering about.

    this is correct. I am wondering though.. would you use the propane as much as a bunch of gas.... you use gas for the truck , the quad etc

    It will depend on the situation. During a power outage at home the option of multiple fuels provides flexibility. Keep the fridge or freezer going. Can't recall if the dual fuel was propane or natural gas. If natural gas you can keep it going indefinitely.

    It’s propane. If it was natural gas…it would be amazing for home use
