Just bought one

With our move to Northern Cal. and all the cool Forest Service campgrounds around here its made the decision to buy a Honda eu2000i that much easier.

So when it arrives next week from Hicklin Power (www.hicklinpower.com) I'll have to start laying out a mount system and enclosuer for the Casita.

output question

We have a EU1000 for backing up an at-home-office computer in the
event of power failure. We also plan on using it for charging up the
Casita when boondocking. But I was slightly surprised that the EU1000
which honda rates at 900 watts does not have the ability to run
my 800 watt microwave when it's set on #4 (out of 10) cooking level. I know both the generator and the micro are in perfect condition. So could one of our resident "sparkies" explain surges etc. It should be noted that Honda makes clear in all their promo for this generator that it's suitable for small kitchen appliances (blenders) & small hand tools etc. Thanks!

eu1000/microwave

Ron:

Have you tried switching the Honda from ECO to 'constant run' before running the microwave?

In some, perhaps most, microwave ovens the Magnetron tube requires full power whenever it is operating. When your setting is at ''4'', the Magnetron operates at full power 40% of the time. Even though the oven appears to be in operation all the time, the Magnetron is not operating 60% of the time. You may have never noticed it, but you can probably hear the ''power'' cycle off and on in your microwave when you use it. All the time the turntable or fan is operating.

But as P.C.D. suggests, try it. I think yours would probably work. Some appliances (definitely the case of the air conditioner) require higher ''peak'' power at startup, but I'm not sure that this occurs in a microwave.

If all else fails, you can buy another eu1000i and lash them together with the special Honda interconnect cord.

generators

Way back when, someone indicated that the 2000 series Honda was not being produced, and was not available. I bought one yesterday, and the supplier said that they had no problem getting them.

My supplier is: Cliff's Saws and Cycles, 2619 10 St., Baker City, OR, 97814. Telephone # 541-523-2412. The price was $971 US.

That seems to be the price all you pay south of the 49th. I'm jealous!!

I just bought one - because I was concerned about warranty issues (I know it's a Honda, but better safe than sorry), I figured I was safer buying it here in Canada (eh!).

I paid 1499.00 CDN or 1000.00 US. at CR CYCLE in Maple Ridge BC.

Out of approx. 10 phone calls they were the only ones offering it at a discount, everyone else was at MSRP of 1679.00 or so.

If I bought from Mayberry's I probably would have had to pay for freight and insurance INTO Canada, GST and any applicable duty.

If I lived in the states, I would have bought from Mayberry's for sure.

I got "the company" to buy it - so no big deal. :)

microwave

Ken:

Microwave trivia: Your '800w Microwave'.

That's 800w cooking power or 'output'.

That's different from the 'input' wattage required to run it (from the Honda). Input is probably higher.
