Not sure I would take mine camping as I've never wanted to do generator camping, mine is mostly for portable work and tools. However, we are contemplating spending a good bit of time someday soon in places like S Padre, so might reconsider after giving those type areas a a trip or two.

when I get a long term, in the shadows type campsite, and my solar panels are doing little to no good, I've plugged into the power source on my tailgate and I idle my truck for an hour or so. It certainly doesn't get the award for cost bennifit as far as gas goes but it works guite well. Oddly, it's also quieter than a lot of generators I've heard. I've seen others use jumper cables directly to the battery. I don't have an AC unit on my 17 foot so I'm just powering water pumps, refrigerator, fans, LED lights and electronics.

Just do South Padre when everyone else does Greg - in the winter, when the highs are in the 60s and 70s. No AC needed, so no generator either. Works for us.

That sounds like a perfect plan, Robert. We do seek 70 Degrees!
