Can a generator run a hot water heater?

You don't have to run the well pump and the water heater. This is a great reason to have a tank type water heater, it heats up the 40-50 gallons and then you get a shower using 2 gpm until the hot water runs out. Make sure to repeat as necessary. In an hour most anks can go from ice cold to 120 degrees.
