Do a little research on your own, don't do it on my say-so. I'm an idiot who just tosses out ideas.

I found that setup on an RV forum before you posted about it and liked it.

I had visions of going with two 2000i's, but wanted something to run my well pump, apparently I need 220V.

Don't know what a CJ gets otherwise, but that's a really light aerodynamic trailer. Only about 1300#. I doubt it reduces mileage more than 3-4 mpg.

Then that would be about 10

I've had three CJ's over the years and they are not known for good MPG.

Not surprised. That's a "don't ask" question then...

it has a fuel gauge, and the petcock can be turned off and let the genny run dry so you dont leave fuel in the bowl. I believe it also has a slightly longer warranty. Look at the specs as well I think it has a slightly higher surge rating. Also depending where you are they can be slightly cheaper.

Neither are bad machines however...
