Had intentions of purchasing a new Honda EU2000i this past spring...., but spent the extra few hundred and went with the Yamaha EF2400iSHC generator. I didn't think I would need a generator to run my A/C since I do most of camping around Michigan, that's why I felt the Honda would serve me just fine. But with plans to head out west next year I thought having the ability to run my A/C might be a plus.
Well, after spending the last few weeks boondocking in Michigan's Huron National Forest, I'm glad I went with the Yamaha. The temp's throughout Michigan were in the 85 to 95 degree range most of last week, and the inside temp of my TT reached 92 degrees on a number of afternoons. I used the genny to run my A/C on a number of occasions to cool things down inside to a respectable 72 degrees. With my particular TT it took about one hour run time to bring the inside temp down to 72 degrees.
The Yamaha EF2400 had no problem starting my 13.5 A/C with the outside temps in the low 90's, which I thought might have been an issue. So far the Yamaha has performed well.
