Yo, folks, don't overlook the fact that two 1000 or 2000 Hondas can be linked together for double the power (I think they have to be the same size, however, so you can't use a 1000 to upsize a 2000, but I am not sure about that).

Not an inexpensive solution, but the difference in weight of a single unit vs two smaller units might result in chiropractic and physical therapy savings <grinz>.

* * * * * * Rick,

I have my generator mounted on the roof.

at 25% full load - 0 db noise level
at 95% full load - 0 db noise level

I never add gas and I only run it in the day time. *;)
Morgan---------I gotta love that.:banana

:wave Hi Rick
we bought our eu2000 from www.powermadeeasy.com for us$845 + about $16 for the 12 volt charger adaptor. since then, they have come down to $837.00
the guy asked what we were going to use it for and he said he did'nt think it would do it (power the aircon), but we said we'd buy it anyway, and as we all know, it does.:reye2
btw it was free freight to us....don't know about your situation.

I am being told that a Honda 2000 will not run the air on my soon to be 13 feet Scamp. I am in Florida, this is important to me.... I would like to (bolt) the gererator to the hitch in place of the gas tanks. I have a roof air unit, I believe it is a Coleman.... I need to know if bolting is a problem? I would go to a 3000 if necessary

Hi Julie,

EU2000i works beautifully powering the Coleman Mach a/c on our 2002 Casita 17'. As soon as the a/c starts up, the eu2000i throttles way back. At AIBF last year neighbors couldn't believe it was running. Don't know what size/brand your a/c is, but the eu2000i should be a good solution. We don't try to use the microwave at the same time that the a/c is operating, but we use everything else at the same time with no problems.

Your safety chains (with a padlock) are good anchors for your generator. And yes, when you buy the gen, get the 12v. battery charging cable--it's only a $10 extra, that you might need some day.

The 2000 is not a heck of a lot heavier than the 1000. (Not the big jump like there is to the 3000.) I'd need either a dolly or a hernia belt with the 3000! And, INMO, it would be too heavy to mount on the front, considering optimum tongue weight. If I recall correctly, the umbilical cord to inter-connect two 1000's or two 2000's is pretty pricey. Many have successfully mounted the 2000 up front, and I may do that too some day. Besides, there's just no need to go to the 3000 in our-sized trailers unless you have another dedicated use, like powering a remote hunting cabin.

gen.set.

Hi Julie...We have a 3000 and are very happy with our unit. Be very carefull before you make your choice which one to buy. Air Con. use's the most power it's going to during start up! Some A/C units use way more than others. On our stick built M/H I can't run the A/C with out 20 amps of power during start up. If I plug into the 15 amp. plug in with the M/H cord the breaker pop's after about 10 seconds of running the A/C. I have to plug into the 20 amp plug in to make it work. Might be because of the power converter/built in batt. charger ?...I do not know.In the new Honda sales flyer{Can.} it says that the 3000 can not run A/C but I Know it can on the 20 amp. plug.BTW Rick...The 2000 Honda is NOT listed in the new flyer! they dropped that model so getem now or don't getem at all. Hope this info. helps......Rick and Karen.

Thanks for the heads up R and K

I was not aware of that - guess I should bite the bullet quick.

Honda 2000 generator

>>...The 2000 Honda is NOT listed in the new flyer! they dropped that model so getem now or don't getem at all. >>>
===========

Hard to believe, it's very popular, good seller, good reviews, etc. :)

And such a sensible combination of size/weight, noise level, output capacity and safety for a portable generator.

I dunno.........I find it VERY hard to believe the eu2000i has been dropped from Hondas product line. :o

You heard it here first. I even dug threw all my sales flyers to double check. NO honda EU2000 in the new Canadian sales flyer!!! All they have for inverters is : EU3000isCAO- EU1000iC and an EX500C. Thats all folks,no more ,nada,Kaput. They dropped the rest of the inverter line. EG.3000 pull start,2000. They don't have a 2000 series at all any more. It goes from an EM/EZ1800 to an EM/EZ2500 and nothing in between!!! Don't ask me why? Must be some reason. Too good or too handy or something brillint like that! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news so like I said before "Getem while you can".......Rick and Karen:sick

That could be why I got the following numbers when asking specifically for an EU2000 last week:

EM2500 $1429.00 (952.00US) and EM3000 $1489.00 (992.00US)


I'll probably locate and buy the EU2000 locally next week or so, depending on funds.

:)

Honda EU2000i

Rick:

Glad you are happy with your 3000.

At 134lbs it's not in the same market as the EU2000 at 47lbs.

Because the EU2000 is not listed in your canadian sales flyers, can you rightly assume that it's been dropped from production?

Just asking......:)

Still available

I did a search on the Honda Canada website and the EU2000iC is still listed and available at various dealers.

I would think if Honda Canada was still selling them up here they would have included it in the rest of their lineup considering they list the spec's for 22 different models, would you not?:conf I don't think that they would have too many people pounding down their doors asking them for a model they don't advertise anymore!
