Yes Another SMH Im Sorry in Advance

i have spent several hours already looking and "researching" and still am not 100% certain. Money is tight, my father has a Honda 2000 (one you can "link") to another 2000 to make a 4000. My wife wants to camp at PINS (Padre Island National Seashore) and i want to make sure we can do it. Costco has what looks to be a great deal on a Generac GP8000E for $750. I am not 100% sold on it as i was when i was at first due to size/weight and noise level. What exactly do i need to use the Hondas?

I have the same Honda EU2000's. You need a parallel cable kit to enable 4K to run your AC. 1 alone can run your Microwave but I wouldn't use the Eco throttle at that time. Camping World sells them, Amazon and many on line retailers

Manufacturer Part Number: 08E93-HPK123HI

Good luck

Be sure to check out the Generator RUN TIME restrictions in place at PADRE Islands...

Alot of the public places we go to including our local Natl Forest areas all seem to have them in place and you are only allowed to run a generator usually from 8-10AM and then again from 4-7PM. The Natl Forest areas here allows the approved type generators from 8AM to 8PM is some areas... Never found a public place where they were allowed after 8PM at night... That doesn't give you much time to use some of those high wattage items on your trailer.

Never camped at Padre Isl but something you should probably check on...

Following. Have never stayed there, and would like to hear how your generator decision as well as your trip go...

Thanks, Yeah already done that research.


Do not run generators between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

As of right now im leaning to holding off on purchasing the Generac GP800E from costco and saving for the Honda. We are planning on going for Columbus day weekend(fishing should be great). Should be cooled down enough by then at night with the windows open to have a nice breeze and sleep comfortably. but if all goes well will start to go more often in the warmer months.

Hondas are fantastic but the price point is high. I purchased two Champion 2000 with the parallel package and USB charge for half the price. Sound level is similar but size is slightly larger. They stack nice and not as desirable to the "helping hands" that often walk away with the smaller red Hondas.

Anyone else have experience with Weingartz supply in Michigan ? No sales tax shipped to other states?
