We recieve a lot of questions asking which generator we used when we were living in our Little Guy Max. Now we did a lot of research on this subject and to be honest it was a daunting task.
But we knew wanted the following out of our Generator.
1. It had to be able to run our 13,000 BTU AC unit
2. It had to be affordable
3. It had to provide clean power so we could use laptops and other sensitive equipment
4. It had to be quiet
5. We needed a company with great customer service.
After endless web searches, YouTube videos and talking with other RV’ers we decided on the Energizer eZV3200 Inverter Generator.
Let’s take a quick look at how this unit addressed our needs…
1. Must be able to run our 13,000 BTU AC.
a. Not a problem…The eZV3200 ran our AC all day long without even breathing hard. We even let friends of ours who were traveling in a Casita use it when they needed
to run cool off during a particularly brutally hot Las Vegas day.
b. This generator can even handle some 15,000 BTU AC.
2. It had to be affordable.
a. At 949.00 this unit is almost half the cost of a Honda or Yamaha
3. Clean power
a. All Energizer Inverters come with Smart Device Protection, which means it won’t fry your devices with microprocessors.
b. Energizer inverter generators will only deliver clean sine wave power or cut power entirely to prevent any damage.
This feature is only available through Energizer and Honda Inverter Generators.
4. It had to be quiet
a. The national park service requires a generator to be less than 60 dBA, the eZV3200 runs at 56 dBA.
5. Great customer service
a. After reading several reviews one thing became apparent whenever there was an issue with a unit there was also a statement about how easy it was to work with
Energizer to recieve service, repairs or replacement.
Beyond these have-to-haves we were delighted to discover
That the eZV3200P is equipped with auto choke and auto-throttle that enables a truly seamless remote start.
Other brands with only manual choke claim to be remote start but require customers to pull the choke first and then press the button –
while standing beside it, which defeats the purpose of remote start!
Speaking of remote start, the eZV3200 has a 48 hour timeout window and 100ft range allowing the remote to be used seamlessly for the whole weekend from inside. Big plus
during those rainy weekends.
It weighs about 95 lbs. but this handle and wheels make it easy to move it around.
It comes with 2 remotes for remote start-up, it had a push-button electric start and a back-up pull start.
It has a low oil alert function that will automatically shut the unit off if your oil is low.
