Attention all honda generator owners!

Y'all know Pete and I are just joking about taking your generators!

You don't have to lock them down when we're around!

Trust us!

For example, last year, I had the pleasure of camping next to the Fiberglassrv.com webmaster.

I was constantly double-checking his little generator box, to make sure Michael had locked it!

EU2000i for air

Y'all sure sound like you know what your talking about. Why all the gloom and doom predictions on some other sites about using the EU2000i for running roof airs? One guy said it would wreck both the air conditioner and the generator!

This would sure make my desert trips more enjoyable!

By the way, I've also done business with Mayberrys on some water pumps and the service was great!

Maybe it's a bigger AC then the one on the little Fiberglass TTs. So of course you would need more power = bigger generator.

Sorry about the conversion kit

Sorry, Roy, about the disappointment with the parts. I was hoping that would not be the case. From what you say, send the conversion kit back tomorrow morning and also re-post on the propane conversion thread, so that others are up to date on this. I for one, intended to follow your lead, but not now, thanks to your experience. Let us know if you someday find a decent conversion unit, though.

Dan, regarding the ''naysayers'' on the eu2000i, if you do a search, particularly on the casitaclub.com web site, there was one guy repeatedly jumping in on the Honda threads, telling what lousy experience he had had, particularly with warranty. All said and done, it came out that he bought a commercially used and abused unit, then tried to get a Honda dealer to cover repairs under warranty. That doesn't work in an honest world.:bh

eu2000i

George:

I think I remember the guy you're referring to. Many, many posts by ONE disgruntled person. :o

Digging a bit deeper for information it came out that the generator had been used in continuous duty. Something like 24/7 for 2-3 months, along with several other generators. Perhaps that's what you mean by comercial use?! It's sure not designed for that kind of use (abuse).

And it'll power an 8,000btu AC with a little careful attention. :)

My Eu2000i

I don't pretend to be an expert on the Eu2000 by any means, but I like mine very much and am very glad to have it. I don't understand the remark about "wrecking" the generator though. Short of running it 24/7, which it is not intended for, or not paying attention to periodic maintenance, how would you do that? The other day I tried to get it to go to overload by using the heat-strip along with a cube heater. It simply cut the trailer out of the circuit and continued running. I removed the load, went out, shut it down, started it back up and everything was fine again. For me it is the perfect match for my little fiberglass beauty, and it even looks good with its "jewelry"-- its set of stay-at-home chains!

Robert B... Good to hear from someone who actually owns the little Honda 2000. Would you please tell me the size of your little "egg". Also, where do you put the generator? I don't have a truck, I would like to put it on the back or attach it somehow to the V. Julie

Hi Julie

Hi Julie M-

I have a p/u truck, so it rides inside. But I have seen several posts about carrying it on the a-frame and even in a custom designed box. I suppose you could also just set it inside the trailer when you were on the move. Even when it has been running for a good long time it is a very clean and polite little package. I know that if I were in a much-travelled area and going to be gone from the camp site for any length of time I would put it back in the truck or set it inside the trailer. It's just one of those gem-like little items that tends to "get legs."

(I also have the camo cover for the gen. But I have to wonder about the wisdom of designing a cover for it and then emblazoning "HONDA" across it. Go figure! )

eu2000i disguise

A 2 bottle propane tank cover just fits over the Honda to hide it.

......or a tricycle box. :)

Generator

Julie; If you are going to be staying in campgrounds most of them have hookups and you don't need a generator.

It seems that a great many people think a generator is a must have option. We do have a eu2000 and we carry it in the bed of our pickup.

We spent about 80 days in our Casita last year and never used the generator.(We do have a small solar panel.) Most of that time was in Forest Service campgrounds or boondocking in the desert(winter)

Nick
