Cummins Onan pretty much owns the RV generator market. This is because these units come with very quiet operation. They are also know for their utility grade power output.

These units are going to come with powerful motor starting capability and with 6500 watts you can power pretty much anything you would need including one or two air conditioners with power to spare.

Replaced A Generac
I replaced a Generac that malfunctioned after 1400 hours. The Onan is much quieter. I wait to see how reliable it is. The technician who installed it didn't want to install a junction box and run of cable, so mounted it in the front compartmnt of my rv with the generator end outboard. It should be a trip changing the oil.
