Could you post a picture of your generator and inverter? I'd like to see what is involved.You know it. I couldn't run a full house with it, but it is enough to cover the necessities.
I went with an inverter since it outputs stable, clean voltage for electronics. That also allows it to idle at low speed when there is low load, saving on gas and reducing noise output (although it's fairly quiet). The old generator my dad had would run full-bore.
I still have to get a proper set of extension cords to run to the house, though. I can run it on what I have, but it's rather clumsy. I am thinking of making my own, so I can get the length I want (which is between two common sizes), the right wire gauge size, good flexibility in colder weather, and terminated in a way that I can more easily use it indoors. We won't be here long enough to worry about installing a transfer switch.
