Default Generator for block heater

What is the minimum size generator I can use for the block heater and battery blanket?

How many watts is your block heater and battery blanket together?

Factory block heaters don't draw much. I don't know about the blankets

My guess is a 1500 Watt invertor generator would work. Be nice and quiet too
If you can afford it, a generator that makes 120/240v 60hz at 1800rpm will be more reliable

Silence! Differing opinions will not tolerated
