Honda RV EV4010 Generator
Honda currently provides a few RV generators and the EV4010 is one of those. The Honda RV E4010 generator provides 4,000 watts and 120V. The Honda EV4010 uses a 12 HP twin-cylinder, liquid cooled engine with electric start. For a RV generator, the Honda EV4010 provides the dependability of a Honda engine and enough power for an AC unit.


or





Honda RV EV6010 Generator
The Honda RV EV6010 generator provides 6,000 watts of power in a compact design. The 12.2 HP twin-cylinder, liquid cooled engine provides a dependable source for powering AC units as well as other electronics as well. The Honda EV6010 also comes with a decent warranty for generators and features easy access to maintenance areas.

Ok, that makes more sense now. Right after I bought my Yammy, the price went way up, too.

I asked on another thread and didn't get a reply. Does the duplex cord do some magic or what?

The inverter series generators us an electronic circuit to create a 120volt power at 60 hertz. The two generators running independent of the other, each run at 60 hertz. They are mostly like out of place and not exactly on 60 hertz. To keep it simple, the parallel cables do tow things. It allows both benerators to contribute toward the total 4000Watt capacity. Secondly, the cable allows the two generators to communicate and synchronize the tow sources so that they are now in phase with each other.

Getting parallel generators it operate together requires some complex circuitry which is easily done with the proper electronics.

The eu and yammie panel have the microprocessor that balances the load when parallel. Cord is nothing special other than the connectors.

in 2009 I bought two EU2000. In 2011 I bought 1 companion and 1 regular unit and the Honda parallel cord. The companion generator has the standard 30amp plug already on the unit so you dont have to buy anything else to plug an RV umbillical cord into.

As the OP of the thread, Thanks to all for the replies and opinions. After reading several folks posts about their own generators it seems that more folks own Honda's than Yamaha's. I think for good reason. They're awesome generators. As a matter of fact, I don't think Honda puts their name on anything that isn't a good product. I think the same goes for Yamaha as well. After viewing many youtube videos, reading every review I could find and researching everything I could find, I decided on the Yamaha EF2000 and ordered it from wisesales yesterday. I read a lot of positive reviews and comments about wisesales, and it is a brick and morter store. They, like a lot of other smart retailers just do some advertising and sales on the internet. I got the gen for $910.99 out the door. Saved around $90 over purchasing from Amazon and almost $170 over my local Cabela's.

Looking forward to getting it next week. Filling it with some Amsoil and using it the following weekend. I will eventually be purchasing the oil change kit to make oil changes easier and less messy.
