This is contractor grade generator. With inverter technology is going to be quieter, but still you will not be welcome with it at campgrounds.


Yup. And a cheep one at that.
Understand saving a buck and not going team red or blue. But you get what you pay for.
I think that 4000W Horrible Freight special comes with a complimentary box of earplugs though!

Numerous Campgrounds, and even National Parks, are getting real testy on Generator noise.

I just saw that Yellowstone National Park has LIMITED Generators from 8am until 8pm in Seven parks (Bay Bridge, Canyon, Fishing Bridge, Grant Village, Madison, Mammoth and Norris). There is a noise limit of 60 decibels.

I know just ONE Genny that can operate under load at that noise level.

Check out the dBA Chart at 100% Load

The National Park standard is at 50 ft not 23 ft that the list has.

Just adding that FitRV tested 3 RV generators of different fuel types in motorhomes, and they all passed at 50 ft.
