Anyone here with a Polar Cub who thinks it is much quieter? Can you actually sleep with it?

Posted quiet times and camp hosts who won't enforce...that sure sounds like material for an interesting thread!

What does a 600 watt Yamaha generator cost in Canada and where in the Vancouver area is the best place to get one?

Your thumbs might work, however most other people try the less silly method.

They are no longer in production, the OP's is something like 20 years old. The smallest Yamahopper I can find is a 1000 Watt.

J Mac, if you are still looking for off brand, amazon.ca has an 800w that might do?

If noise is a consideration, running a smaller generator near its capacity can be a lot noisier than a larger unit at a lower speed. For example the Honda 1000W and 2000W generators have the same 59 db rating at full throttle, but the 2000W is probably half as loud when recharging just the trailer batteries. In hind sight I was so glad we opted for the larger unit, plus it will run our air conditioner in the new Escape.

You sure about that? I checked my eu2000i with my meter once upon a time and if I recall correctly it was 59 at low idle and considerably more at full.

I was just going by the specifications for the two Honda units. What I am sure of is how much quieter it runs when charging our trailer batteries vs at maximum speed which I'm sure it will be running if we ever use it to run the AC. On the Honda website the decibel difference between full power and 1/4 power was listed as 6, which on a logarithmic scale is significant. One source had 6 db equating to double the sound pressure level.
