WEN 56200i Generator 1 year review.
In this episode we review the WEN 56200i inverter generator.
15A to 30A pigtail
We were in the market for a 2000W inverter generator about a year ago. We looked at the Yamaha and Honda options, but thought $1000.00 was a bit steep. Then we stumbled upon the WEN 56200i. This generator boasted the same running and peak wattage 1600/2000 as the Honda and Yamaha generators, but costs about half as much. We were a little apprehensive about the purchase believing you usually get what you pay for, but we were pleasantly surprised with the WEN 56200i. This generator comes with an Eco-Mode that can adjust the RPMs based upon the electrical load. It is also capable of parallel connections with a Parallel Kit allowing you to hook up another generator if you need larger electrical capacity. This is a Pure Sine Wave system allowing you to hook up your sensitive electronics without worry.
This system is fairly quiet at anchor and the 8 hour run time on a tank of gas could allow you to run it throughout the night. It will get up to about 60 decibels at peak power which is comparable to the Honda or Yamaha. We do usually turn it off if we are near other cruisers, just to be courteous but we have gone to sleep with it on.
We use a pigtail in one of the two three-prong 120V receptacles and a jumper in the other. The jumper allows the system to no fault for the reverse polarity indicator on our AC panel. The pigtail gets plugged into our shore power cord and the boat. This allows all of our outlets and any other AC powered systems in the boat to get power. There is also a 12V DC receptacle and a 5V USB Port if you need more hook ups at the generator.
The WEN 56200i also has several safety features to keep the system running smoothly. The Overload Protection, Low-Oil Shutdown, and Low Fuel Shutdown help ensure you won’t damage your generator or run it completely out of fuel.
While this is a portable generator you want to make sure you have room to store it on your boat. It measures 18X11X18 and weighs just under 50lbs making it a little hard to store on a small sailboat. Lisa made a Sunbrella cover to keep it out of the direct sunlight while it’s on the deck. We also disassembled the generator and prepped it for the marine environment using high temperature paint and Boeshield T-9 to keep corrosion at bay.
We have a 12,500 BTU AC and heat system aboard Starjewel. This generator has enough power to run the air conditioner and charge phones, computers, and the battery bank. However, it did not have enough power to start the compressor every time. We installed a SUPCO Hard Start capacitor to our air conditioner. This allows us to run our AC and almost anything else aside from the microwave at the same time. This little capacitor has really expanded our comfort at anchor in the winter and summer.

⚡️ WEN 56200i Portable Inverter Generator Review ⚡️
WEN 56200i Portable Inverter Generator Review. Quiet, Handy, Very Easy To Start, Smooth Pull Cord! Great design and super economical on gas. Really Nice Unit! Does Exactly What I Wanted!
???? DISCOUNT (expire soon), click here to get it ➡️
If you look for a good generator, especially for camping, look no further than this WEN 56200i. It's quiet, fairly light and the motor never misses. It is very quiet, handy, and easy to start. The pull start is very smooth, takes very little effort to start this unit. This WEN portable generator puts out enough power to run the Air Conditioner (5000 BTU) in my Camper, and run the Microwave.
First of all, I bought this Wen 56200i generator because it's very attractive. Inside it seems to have nearly the quality level of the Yamaha although there are differences. The engine is the same design but it has a dipstick whereas the Yamaha only has a plug. The spark plugs use different size wrenches. The inverter on the Yamaha is cased but the circuit board components are open on the WEN.
Furthermore, this WEN 2000w inverter generator was easy to get ready. I did have to add oil, but as I change the oil in my cars and other smaller equipment regularly this was easy. The oil fill area is easy to get to and well marked. It was easy to learn how to start, and it is easy to pull to start it
I also love the ease of pulling the start engine cord. Smooth easy pull. It starts up easily and is very quiet. A little on the heavy side for me at 48 pounds, plus 8 pounds for a full tank of gas, but 48 pounds is doable.
This WEN 56200i super quiet generator was exceptionally fuel-efficient. I filled it before we left on vacation, and I took an extra gallon of gas along. I did not need the extra gallon, because in about 5 hours of running on the economy mode it used only 1/4 of the tank of gas!
Very quiet, vibrates very little, easy to carry, gas gauge, eco-mode which really does slow it down when more than 1000 watts aren't needed, low oil shutdown, USB charging port along with 12v charging port for batteries, starts first pull every time, and has a convenient one-knob rotating control which chokes and turns generator AND fuel on/off instead of three separate controls.
This WEN 56200i portable inverter generator charged and ran most of my appliances. When it was running all of my camper appliances including our small Microwave worked. It charged the batteries from about half full to completely charged in under an hour every day.
The spark plug is harder to find size so I converted it to NGK and ordered a couple of spares.
On the whole, I am very pleased with it. This Wen 56200i 2000-watt generator is a really nice unit, great value by the price. Small enough to be mobile but powerful enough to do the job. As long as I take care of it, I think it will probably last for years to come and make boondock camping much easier. Very good purchase. Highly recommend.

Harbor Freight Predator 3500 watt generator Noise Test running the RV Air Conditioner?
In this video, we test both the Harbor Freight Predator 3500 watt generator and the Generac ix2000 generator for noise levels while running our Dometic 10,500 btu Cool Cat air conditioner in our 2018 NuCamp T@B 400. We measure the sound using a decibel meter app on our iphone from 23 feet away from the generator.

Harbor Freight Predator inverter generator compared to Champion Inverter generator
Harbor Freight Predator 3500/3000 watt inverter generator compared to Champion 100233 - 3400/3100 Watt Inverter Generator.
I ended up with the Champion because the Predator died 6 months after I bought it. Never used it just break in and monthly warm ups. It was replaced but not until after my first RV trip. It died the day before the trip during the test run. So I ran out and bought the Champion to break it in for the no hook up site.
Now I have redundancy if one breaks I will have a back up.
Likewise My Ecoworth solar controller also lasted a few months dying the week before the first trip. ( )
I eventually replaced it with a very awesomely impressive Victron Blutooth one. ( )
I will buy a back up solar controller for when I am retired on long trips. Redundancy is the key word there again.
Honda 2000 vs Champion 2000 Inverter Generator Comparison
The Honda 2000 watt inverter generator is the gold standard of inverter generators. Many companies have been releasing their own version to compete with Honda. We just purchased a new Champion 2000 watt inverter generator and decided to compare it with my father in laws Honda. The units are very similar and run in parallel with another 2000 watt unit. When paralleled they can put out near 3700 watts to power your entire RV.

If you travel or go camping frequently, investing in the best portable camping generator will make your life very easy and convenient outdoors. The generators are designed with low noise rating, meaning they are ultra-quiet not to interfere with your peace.
Better yet, they are powerful enough with clean power to operate most sensitive electronic appliances. There are several options when it comes to portable camping generators, but only a few can qualify as the best. Thus, we have compiled the following reviews to help you find the best choice for all your needs.
The Truth, inverter generators aren't QUIET
While the inverter generators seem quiet, it's when you use them that the sound level really matters. During this video, you'll see real world conditions the generators are actually under a load, with a traditional generator of double the capacity running 6 dBa quieter than a Honda inverter generator while on the same 1500 watt load. Why spend more to get a louder generator with half the capacity? This has been done many times on generators up to a Generac 17,500 watt unit.
Running a 30 amp Camper With Two Harbor Freight Predator Generators
This is two Harbor Freight 1,600 - 2,000 watt generators connected with a parallel connector. For this test I ran the A/C, refrigerator and television. I would probably turn something off before kicking on the coffee maker or microwave. These generators are super quiet and you can barely hear them running inside.
I got this system primarily for emergency power but the twin generators give me the flexibility to take one when I don't need the big setup. The twin generator configuration means double the maintenance and higher up front costs. We felt the costs were justified because the generators are easier to move. I couldn't life the 3,500 watt generator but I can load these in the truck without assistance.
Westinghouse iGen2500 Vs Predator 3500
We want to run an RV air conditioner. 3500 or 2500 watts? I give my opinion on it... for what it's worth.

My new Wen Generator
I finally broke down and bought a generator. Visit my post to find out what changed and why now is the time to power up your camper.
WEN 2000 INVERTER GENERATOR INITIAL REVEIW (2019)
My initial thoughts on the WEN inverter generator purchased from the Home Depot. Generator was ordered online and sent to the store for pick up. The front of the case was damaged and broken and not sure if the damage was from the factory or the shipping but did not hinder the start up and use of the generator. If i had time i would have sent it back for an undamage one but i was days away from my trip that i needed it on and was afraid that the home depot could not deliver. So if Home Depot is listening i would like one that didn't have factory/shipping damage just saying.
Power Pro Technology 1000 Watt Generator - Running a full size LG refrigerator
I recently bought this little Power Pro Technology 1000 watt generator to have as a backup power source. I saw this on sale for only $90, so I thought I'd give it a try. I specifically wanted a small generator for the lower fuel consumption and portability. This will run for 5-6 hours on one gallon of gas and only weighs about 35 pounds. The only downside is that the two-stroke engine requires mixed fuel.
This video shows me starting it up and plugging the fridge in for the first time. My refrigerator is really big, so I was worried if the surge current would be too much for this little generator. It wasn't a problem at all. The fridge started right up. I ran it for a full hour without any problems. I'm confident it would run the fridge easily during an extended blackout.
I also considered a small Harbor Freight generator, but the running wattage was only 700 watts. This one is a better buy.
I didn't receive anything for making this video.

Harbor Freight Predator 3500 Inverter Generator
We needed a generator and I chose the Predator over a Honda or a Champion.
Predator 3500 Inverter Generator
We decided it was time to pick up a generator. We were leaning hard towards a Honda, Yamaha, or Champion, but couldn't say no to the price of a Predator from Harbor Freight.
I unbox it, get it running, then do a break-in oil change. Overall we are VERY happy with it so far.
