I need some opinions on my power needs. I am looking into getting an Onan commercial generator. What should I look for? Should I be concerned with the watts or the amps? All of my equipment(2-1200w warmer, 1-500w soup kettle, 1-1450w water heater) plus a small fridge and water pump. Total watts is 4340 and total amps 56.2 for all of my equipment. Am I good with a 5500 watt generator? I plan on some lights and later down the road an air conditioner. Am I good with 5500 or should I go with a 7000watt?
Is 5500 too big? Will these pieces of equipment cycle on and off that would allow me to go with even a smaller gen set?
