Auto Gen Start-Which One?

Our recent "adventure" into the wilds without a RESERVATION <that's another post! > has inspired us to want to add an auto gen start. Curious if anyone has added this, and which one they have. We would like to have the programmable kind that has a "quiet time" feature and preferably a thermostat for heat to turn on A/C's if it gets really hot in the coach while we are away and not plugged in.

Having the residential fridge is HEAVEN... but boondocking for a few days sort of causes anxiety about the battery getting too low and being harmed if we are away from the coach for a few hours. I know it's not good to let it get below about 11.8 or so.

Thanks for your thoughts!

No, I haven't. I have looked at this one:

and this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Xantrex-FREEDM...S9ARZ0FKBNJTKZ
I am sure they are both great, but I was hoping for some feedback. I am going to go look what Entegra/Newmar installs on their MHs. Cheap insurance for my batteries. Next I will be upgrading to at least 4 (hopefully 6) Odyssey batteries. Those things are incredible. Feels like you are plugged in!! We have them in our truck camper and we literally cannot tell we are on battery power.
