Lowest price I've see and seems like a good deal.

I hope you are joking here! Because LeeJ2539 definitely was. It should go without saying to never ever run this indoors.

Definitely! I'd recommend hard wiring it into the dash and keeping it on the passenger seat, that way you never have to stop to charge. Keep the windows up, it'll help with fuel efficiency.

No on the water heater. Water heater's generally run on 220V, which this can't supply. The only water heater's this *may* run are the under sink water heaters meant for just a single spigot. Fridge should be no problem as long as nothing major is running when it starts up (ie don't run the microwave when you first plug in the fridge). I would get something bigger if you plan on using both the microwave (900-1200W) and the refrigerator (500-1200W) at the same time. You are getting way too close to the stated 1800W running watts of this unit (the 2300W is surge watts). For instance, when the fridge or window air conditioner startup, the motors take a lot more wattage for a second or two, then reduce wattage consumption considerably.

I have a 3500W (4000W surge) running gen I use for power outages. That runs a few things in the house, including the fridge, microwave, and pellet stove without hiccups.

Great deal. I bought one 3 weeks ago for $110 more. It has 300 more watts than the Duromax and is quieter if you believe the specs.

Thanks OP, just ordered one. Been watching out for one and understand that a slightly different model (Pulsar PS2000is) is suppose to be one of the top generators per this article -- https://www.ebay.com/t/Generators...bn_2311037

Is the 2300is worth the extra $30?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pulsar-2...5138!US!-1

Couldn't find any difference between the two outside of color, so doesn't seem to be worth it.

Found this on Amazon in the Q&A section [amazon.com] as a response from the manufacturer/seller (assuming everything is legit):
Q: Which is the difference between pg2300is model and g2319n? only color and price?
A: Prices can and do fluctuate, so I cannot speak to the cost difference. Generally speaking, the pg2300is is sold in retail stores, while the brown box cousin, g2319n is sold online. If you find a favorable price, grab it.

Thanks OP!

Just picked one up with rebates me (site) providing 2% cashback, 10% targeted eBay Bucks, and lastly PayPal 5% Chase. Hoping it runs well and is reliable enough for very intermittent usage for emergencies only.

Just ordered one primarily to run my fridge and a few other low-drawing electrical devices (phone charger, a light, etc.). Comments suggest it does well with a fridge. I'm not familiar with the wattage necessary for a water heater, but possibly?

I have the Pulsar 2000is and it has worked out great.

Tempted to buy this one, but not sure if you could pair the different wattages together.... Or that I need another!
