After the article about the generator we bought to use with Cocoon, our travel trailer, several people have asked: “How loud is it?” To give you some feel for the sound the generator makes, I made some rudimentary measurements with a sound pressure level meter.
We need to run Cocoon’s air conditioner on sweltering humid hot summer nights to get a restful night’s sleep. After a lot of research, we bought a generator that can power the Airxcel Mach-3+ when boondocking.
We had a choice between two air conditioner models for our Casita travel trailer. This article describes our analysis of how each of the units fits us. Spoiler alert, it depends; neither unit dominates the other for all needs and preferences.
We want to take the best care of Cocoon, our Casita travel trailer that we will pick up soon. This includes keeping the house battery fully charged and maintained while traveling. This article is about the first step, adding a DC power connection to the back of our tow vehicle to charge the battery.
We want to use our microwave when we are boondocking in Cocoon, our Casita travel trailer. We need an inverter for that but do not want to add a new load to our single 100-amp-hour house battery.
One fuel tank, two uses. When space is limited, having dual-use gear is critical. We need an external fuel tank for the generator at base camp and a spare fuel can for Campbell on excursions.
