Thanks for the Pics Bushman. Our New to us rig has a 15K Carrier heat pump unit. I want to buy 2 honda 2000s. Will they run it? The 3000 will be bigger than I want to muscle around.

15,000 heat pump

I would think 2 X 2000 will be more than You need but You will also have to have a kit to use them in line to give the 4000 watts, You can make up the cable Your self or buy on line also the self feed extra fuel cell.I wanted not to mess with the extra cables and the extra fuel and I also wanted electric start I had 2 air units in My Motor Home and was able to run both with the 3000 at the same time just start them about 1min apart...Good luck Bushman

I have monitored my AC voltage with my Honda eu2000i during powering my Air cond. Yes it does drop for a few seconds at the initial start up, it quickly returns to 120 volts. Not sure how much damage may be occurring during the initial start up of the compressor, but if I turn the eco. mode on on the gen it does drop a few rpms lest than full load. So I feel there is a small amount of reserve power left in the Honda 2000

Ray, do you have an "hour meter" on your Boliy? Any idea how to install one? I think it would be good so I can keep track of when to change oil and maint. checks & etc.

hour meter | eBay



Can't help you with the how- but I think I read somewhere that it was pretty easy. I don't think there is any cutting or splicing of the wiring. Thought about it on my genny but realized that I didn't log enough hours to worry about it- I just change the oil once a year.

Question for a Honda Companian owner. Is the 30 amp receptale on the companian active when using only one generator? I won't need to connect them together very often. I know it won't be 30 amps, but would like to balance the hours between the two and use the 30 amp cord.

The plug is active, but only as a 15 amp load on the Companion.
