I bought 2 - 2000watt Honda Inverter generators. Work very well & are quiet relative to the Champion I tried. Would not recommend trying to run an air conditioner with one 2000watt generator. Initial compressor start up not good for unit.

Thanks for the replies. I have a neighbor that is selling 2 used eu2000i, one a companion, in brand new condition. Ill probably end up buying both and only using the second for the few days Ill need A/C.

A quick question for those who are running the 2 2000 watt genies, what is the run time on fuel when running ac with both genies running?

It depends on the load. The same figures as in the specs would apply.

For my own experience I can tell you I ran my camper with air conditioner in August at a race track (no shade) for 56 hours on 11 gallons of gas. That works out to be 2/10 GPH. Both generators ran 24 hours/day in ECO mode. I do use a 6 gallon extended run fuel tank to feed both generators.

Thanks guys for your replies on this thread! Actually I was also looking for true reviews about honda generator eu2000i and this article provided all the essential details. Now I would definitely buy this generator.

I have a EU3000is and I love mine. The quietest Honda of all, enough grunt, etc. Its heavy though - you'd need to buy a wheel kit and a ramp to get it into a truck unless you have another strong family member to help you 'hoss' it into the back.

If I were going smaller and lighter, Honda would not be my purchase however. It would most assuredly be one of these guys:

*snip* This model boasts High Current output which is designed specifically to increase motor starting capability and to improve air conditioner starting. This High Current model starts most high efficiency 13,500 btu AC in temperatures up to 110 F. *snip*

I tried real hard a couple of years back to get my EU2000i to run my 13,500BTU air conditioner on the roof of my OFF-ROAD POPUP trailer.

Always tripped the breaker connecting the shore power cable of the trailer directly to the 120V RECEPTACLE on the generator using a RV30-15A adapter.

I even tried to run the air conditioner directly since I could get to the a/c 20AMP power cord plug. Same deal - always tripped the breaker. I did start the fan on the air conditioner first and did get the compressor to run a couple of time doing this. But as soon as the A/C would cycle it would trip the breaker...



NOTE that my 2KW Honda Generator 120VAC receptacles is rated at 13.3AMPS

Just got back from a 3 week road trip. The EU2000i ran my AC with no problem. I have a 8000 btu wall unit with my trailer (184BH). We were able to run lights, water pump , plugs, etc. without issue. When we did use the microwave, we turned off the AC.
