I am looking for step by step instruction on making parallel cables for the EU2000's. I have researched this via the Forums but hav'nt found a complete step by step version. I'm very good at following directions and once followed bad directions exactly which fried by inverter.

I have seen two general methods, using E1000 banana cords or using polarized cut extension cords to make the Y. Do you have protection from the circuit breakers using the banana cords? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Just do the easy thing and purchase the setup from Honda. It runs about $250 at Camping World and they are garenteed not to mess things up and I think they even have gauges on them.

I actually just ordered the complete set-up. I got the two generators and parallel RV box for less than 2k so it wasn't worth the DIY risk.

Sorry I didn't see this a while ago. I made mine for about $30. Real easy to make with two 20 amp plugs two 3 foot pieces of 12/3 SO cable (standared 12/3 cord) and one RV repair plug. It's not UL listed but if someone is messing with my gens, they get what they get if they mess up. They better hope they don't yell to loud or they'll have to deal with the owner, and that will be worse than a little 120.

Only thing that has to be done is it needs to be pluged into both gens before you start them or you will have a live male end. The $250 version has no chance of this, since both plugs are shielded.

Great job RoadKingMoe.

I will say I used the male plugs I dought they will fall out. I used a good quality plug and they fit really snug even a little tight. But the posiblity is there, esspecialy after years of use that I don't know yet.

If a dog gets into it, I hope it's the yippy one next door.
