NEW Honda EU2200

Look what I just got! Brand new Honda EU2200.
Best part of all is Saturday I’m going to GUT IT! Yep going to do the Genconnex propane upgrade. This puppy will never see a drop of gasoline.
Of course the will be a full write up and Blog post to Follow
Caught this one at Home Depot before they added the $40 price increase Honda implemented to all EU gensets yesterday.

Was SO bummed, they came out with the 2200 just a few months after I got my 2000. I immediately did the Genconnex conversion too, and got both hoses from Genconnex...one, for the trailer port, and a regulated one for a propane bottle, I carry a 20# tank so I can locate the generator as far from the trailer at the rear as my electric cord will allow rather than have it right outside the dinette.

Ronnie, if you haven't asked them to yet, make sure you have Genconnex provide the high altitude jets, they'll do so for free. Stock jet is up to 5,000 feet, another for 5-8,000 feet, and one for over 8,000 feet. They change out in just a minute using an allen wrench that's provided. You're going to be at nearly 7,000 feet in Coulter Bay and W. Yellowstone, and surely using your furnace. Based on the sun and the shade for your solar...you'll likely be pulling this puppy out to recharge unless you have hookups.

Peter thanks. Yes they sent me the extra jets. I bought this generator just for this trip. We are pretty excited to say the least.

Yep, I'll bet they'll use the furnace to take the chill off in the mornings!

Wish I were heading to the Yellowstone area. My Brother-in-Law is there now with his Trailer and the fly fishing reports are making me very jealous.

Have a fine trip Ronnie.

P.S. Ronnie, I know you're busy, but check your PM inbox.

Cheers,

Bryan

Hi

If we are on shore power, we run the Alde at night. Much nicer to get up to a livable trailer than bundle into heavy stuff just to make breakfast. That's been true pretty much all summer. We've had a lot of lows in the 40's and low 50's.

Genconnex install

What a super fun project. Easy to do and smooth as silk. Honda cranked right up on the 3rd pull. Purred like a kitten.
Here are a few pics form the install.

Thanks for the details and photos. This will be our next purchase if we are heading into hot weather. Our tri-fuel Yamaha 1000 is so portable and easy to use, especially with the BBQ hookup in addition to the quick-connect on the AS. Won't run the A/C of course. Do you have the EZ Start or [similar] add-on?

Thanks,

Peter

Peter, I think you already know that you won't run A/C on anything less than a 3KW generator, unless you install an Easy Start. Then you can run A/C on a 2k generator with some other constraints. As a reminder, they found that even some brands of 2k generators would not work with the Easy Start because the Honda actually held voltage up longer. The 2.2kw generators may well have solved that issue, though.

Admittedly it has been a few years, but when I converted my Yamaha to propane, it required running the engine on gasoline for a certain number of hours before doing the conversion. This was to ensure proper break-in of the engine.

It would be worth checking in it is required in your case.

Peter,
Yes I have a MicroAir EasySTART installed on my 15K AC. I’ve been able to run it on an old Honda eu2000i (gas).
Yesterday I was able to run the A/C with the New EU2200i on propane. With no trouble. Measured amp load at the Generator at 14.8amps output voltage was 119VAC
I did not run the AC but for about 10min on the new Generator (Brake-in). The load and voltage was steady.

The Honda 2200 runs my 11K BTU air conditioner, without the easy start. I don't know if I had to, but I turned EVERYTHING else off. I will be installing the easy start soon though.

Just curious, how long will the Honda 2000 or 2200 genset run on a 20lb l.p. tank? We have 2x Honda 2000 gensets (companion set) we used for a/c ops before installing the e-z start system. Looking at converting one to l.p. leaving the other gas for flexibility sake. Also, what is the most user friendly l.p. conversion system folks have found? Thank you in advance, Jim and Gretchen

This is what I’m doing with our new EU2200i that we just bought from TDH yesterday (with our Veteran’s 10% discount). While I don’t plan to run this on gasoline, I don’t want to limit myself to propane only, should the need arise at some point in the future. The fact that the kit takes about 30 min to install helps too.

Just want point out that the high altitude jets help only with fuel efficiency and keeping the generator running smoothly. Carburetor jets will not overcome the power loss at altitude. Also, running high altitude jets below 4000 ft will cause a lean condition that can damage the engine.

pcskier and Ronnie, Thanks for the comment on the high elevation jet! I just had Gary at GenConneX send me one, they are great. I love my GenConneX 2200. I also got it for the Yellowstone trip, but totally forgot about the elevation and generator, looks to be in the 30's at night, so I will be running the furnace! I hope to see you folks up there, Thanks
