Do you have propane bottle(s) on the tongue, or just the battery?

I have a Honda 2000, bought not just for camping but emergency and utility use around the house/farm. I like it a lot but it is a (little) heavier than I imagined, and a (little) louder than I imagined. I bought the 2000 because it is large enough to run my (6000 BTU) AC and it was only a couple hundred dollars more than the 1000. That said, I kind of wish I had the 1000 for the smaller size and weight, AC be hanged. And for all I know the 1000 may have ran my AC. My tow is a full size (F150) so the genny rides in the back of the truck on those rare occasions I take it camping.

I have a Honda 1000i. I can't physically deal with the heavier 2000i so for me the decision was easy.

As to installation there are some boxes you could mount on the tongue that will allow you to run the Honda eu2000i Generator inside them.
This one is the most reasonably priced version I have seen. You do need to remove cover plates when you want to run it. It is a custom order so you will have to wait for them to make it. http://www.kshmarine.com/generator_box.htm

Here's where I mounted my 2000i on my 1999 17' Casita after moving the propane tanks back one inch and molded the rear of the tank over to provide clearance using a heat gun.

propane generator

I have a 2006 eggcamper. I think the last year Jim did the hybrid electric/gas, I still can't figure out why you would want all electric, takes some of the fun out of it. Boondocking would be harder and not many state parks have hookups. I love the propane, this gas is magic. Clean, easy to transport and I found a conversion that I think would just be James Bond on the tounge connected to the propane tank split to the water heater and gas range Honda Propane & Natural Gas Generators.

I still can't justify a generator, I guess I'll have to wait for a heatwave to break me down to buy one but my deepcycle gives me all I need at the moment.

Thinking going solar panels to charge the battery during the day if no hookups.

All best
andrew

Joe- Did you have a mounting bracket made to set the OWM gen. plate on? My '15 17' LD had two braces welded from the hitch mount back to the frame in front of tanks. How did you work around the angle? Any other pics,? Thanks

Click on the pictures and you can see that Joe has the LoPro LockDown system for his generator. It is not cheap, but really does enhance the security.

I was always told to watch out for too much weight on the tongue of my Boler 1300. I can't believe what I have seen the past few days here. One had an air conditioner, there propane bottle, and an instant hot water heater.
Even thought the frame on my trailer is in fine condition I would hesitate to put my generator on the 2X4 inch tube frame. I got a group 30 battery along with the 20# gas bottle there and worry about it.
Should I be?
