This will run everything in my trailer but the AC.

This Ryobi does do a good job on my particular model and may work for others which are similar.

This generator is very high quality and very quiet.

Made my own parallel kit using #12 SO cord and safety bananna plugs to a weatherproof single gang box with RV 30A plug.
Runs my 13,500 BTU A/C no problem in parallel, and slightly louder than a Honda.
23A measured at full RV load.
Have not looked for extended run gas caps, however the cap supplied looks to lend itself to a DIY solution similar to those available.
Minor gripe when opening the box, they supply oil for the unit, but no good way to deliver it into the engine. You'll want a long, slender funnel or be a contortionist. Oil changes are a bit if an exercise as well, but so are the other brands..
For light loads like TV/Satellite receivers, this thing is quiet enough to have on a short extension cord.
shop vacs and pumps, it gets a bit louder, but a lot less than the average walk behind lawnmower at idle.

First off, this is not a Honda or Yamaha. It is an inexpensive Chinese rebadged generator. Which is fine for what it is and the price. But don't buy this and think you're getting a deal.

The engine is made by Topsun which is in several lines of generators like this. if you pull the parts list on the ryobi website, you'll see that you can buy all parts for the gennie EXCEPT for engine parts. You can get a spark plug, air filter, fuel pump, but the engine itself and internal components are NOT available. It is considered disposable if you have a major mechanical issue. Big difference there compared with the Japenese brands and support networks. Who knows how long it will last. The Honda's are known for 1000's of hours of life. Ryobi may make it- maybe not. I won't need mine to last that long.

The generator runs fine. First hour or so the rpms surged all over the place and it wouldn't seem to settle down. Lots of stumbling at idle and with light loads. After it broke in a little it got much smoother. The power appears very clean. I didn't scope it, but frequency is dead on 60 hz, and voltage varies from 125 to about 115 depending upon load. When you throw a large load (1500w) at it quickly, voltage drops but it recovers within a second or two as the engine revs. Freq never changes. My most fussy equipment that will NOT run on an open frame generator runs fine with this guy.

The 2200 surge amps is suspicious. If you throw a 1500w+ load, even with eco off and high idle it overloads for 2-3 seconds before it settles down. You'll see a voltage drop while this is happening, but it does catch up to the load. No spikes were observed when shedding large loads (e.g. 1600 down to 200 w or so).

I had a situation where my 29 foot boat was docked at a waterfront lot with no electricity. I had run 300 feet of Home Depot 14 AWG extension cords from the house across the street to the boat, then through the Marinco shore power adapter plug that adapts a regular extension cord connection to the shore power connector on the boat. This kept the battery chargers going and let me watch TV.

I didnt expect it to work, but when i tried to turn on the 12,000 BTU A/C unit, it would run until the compressor tried to kick in. My volt meter on my power panel would drop to 50 volts, and the a/c would reset itself and try again. after two cycles of this on a hot day, i looked around for a cheap inverter generator to make this work. I saw the Ryobi 2,200 surge watts Generator RYI2200 for less than $600. I gassed it up, pulled it 6 times, and fired it up. The moment of truth came when I had everything on the panel turned off and put the a/c unit on. I watched the volt meter gauge drop momentarily when the compressor kicked on, and the generator sounded like it was almost going to give up for a split second, but then the idle surged up and the panel meter went back to about 115 VAC. The a/c compressor was running fine, and the generator wasn't sounding strained anymore. I then, one at a time (pausing between each), switched on both battery chargers, and then the small Avanti fridge. There was only a very slight movement of the voltage gauge needle while the Ryobi out on the dock adjusted to the increased load.

My onboad a/c is an ECU-Maxx by Marine Air Systems. It is 12,000 BTU and the label says cooling amps is 11.3, heat is 13, and has an LRA (locked rotor amps) rating of 50 amps. This Ryobi does do a good job on my particular model and may work for others which are similar.

It was hard to get a decibel rating on this generator. The advertising just said "quiet as a conversation." But I called the company and they told me it was rated at 60 dbls. which is pretty good. I do airbrush tattoos at kids parties, fairs etc. I have 2 air compressors to run plus, for fairs, we have lights and on real hot days a fan. This generator ran them all. Plus a couple of neighboring vendors at the fair asked to plug in to our system for their laptops. I let them and the generator ran them! Quiet? It was so quiet I had to go near it to make sure it was running. I would venture to say it's as quiet as a Honda of similar size. The wheels and telescoping handle are a nice touch as well as also having two handles to lift it with. This makes it much easier to lift into or out of a car or truck. The others had one handle molded into the body which can be a strain on you back. The price, $550 at Home Depot was very reasonable for what you get. Plus it has a 2 year warranty which it nice.
