We carry our Honda 2000i in our Odssey in a plastic storage box which I have added foam weather stripping to the lid to assist in vapor control. It resides in a well at the back behind seats so shifting around is not an issue.

However, I recently built a fiberglass box on our tongue for carrying and running the generator, but have don't neither yet.

Thanks Tom Trostel from DR!

We’re always discussing generator requirements for running our air conditioners and you mentioning www.arnoldservice.com and the SPP6E hard start relay could very well be the solution to most of our generator / AC problems.

I to have the McCulloch FG2000Tc and while it will start the AC, it goes into overload when the AC cycles off then back on.

I ordered the CAP and will post a follow-up report after I install it.

The gas cap on the "Honda2000" is great.... It has an on/off lever on the cap and what happens is when you put the cap in the "Off" Position (not running mode) it completely seals the cap so no vapors escape ...........
When you put it in the "On" Position (running mode) the cap is now vented and lets air in to run the unit.
Always travel with the cap in the "Off" Position and you will be fine

How is the box and generator attached to the trailer in the pic with generator on front? Is one side open? Concerns about theft?

Here's another view. The box is bolted to the tongue frame. The generator and gas can are strapped to the box bottom, and the generator is locked to the tongue frame using a cable and padlocks. However, since cables can be cut with a bolt cutter, this method is not foolproof.

The box also has a locking top to prevent casual inspection of the contents, and when open, the front can be slide out for running the generator in-place.
