Here's a curiosity. My Honda 2000i won't run the Airstream A/C, but last year I air conditioned my garage with a 10,000 btu Goldstar. The Honda runs the Goldstar just fine. I was checking to see what the possibilities would be if we had a hurricane and the power was out for a week or two, and sure enough the Honda and Goldstar would keep the garage cool enough to live in here in steamy Corpus Christi until the power was restored.

We have a 13.5K in our AS. Other Handi owners, have posted here that they have used theirs with 15K's without a problem.

We used to transport the Handi under the table in the AS, this proved to be a pain when traveling (always in the way). We now carry it in the TV (Yukon), It has a fuel shutoff, so no smell.

We have a 27' FB Ocean Breeze with the 15,000 BTU AC and our Honda 3000 Handi has no problem running it (but we have not been in 95deg plus heat yet).

Does the 3000i run as quiet as the 2000?

You need to check the specs for the exact difference, but the 3000i Handi is just a little bit louder.

When we were at CW last weekend one of the floor employees was telling another customer that running a 15K BTU AC with the 3000i Handi was bad for the generator. Has anyone heard this before? When I told him that we have used our Handi to run the AC, he said we were going to ruin it and we should buy two of the 2000i generators and get the parallel kit. Sounded like a sales pitch to me, but.... Any comments on this?

CW sales and employees are the worse, not up on any products, and most of them have never camped in a trailer or MH, they just spit out what the manager tells them.

Certainly the Honda would have some kind of overheat protection built in. So in my opinion if it runs and handles the load and heat, the unit should last a while. Honda standards are high.

I've used my Yamaha 3000 in extremely hot weather for many hours. Its still kicking. I use synthetic oil and it still doesn't use any or smoke- an '04 model.

But if you're planning on using it out in Barstow or Baker (etc.) in the summer for lots of hours it may be better to get a generator with a greater margin of capacity. But I'm talking about hundreds of hours here.

The EU3000is =49dB
The EU2000i =53dB

However the EU3000i Handi is a little louder at 57dB
