This is the AC output of 3000 the unit:
120V
3000W max.(25A)
2800W rated (23.3A)

2- 2000 units will give you more flexibility but the remote start on the 3000 sure is nice. Both models have a ton of accessories to make them easy to live with.
sorry my excuse is trying to type with touch keys on my phone.
Sigh.

WE find the 3000 with electric start to be more convenient and an excellent choice; in fact, we traded in one of our Eu2000i on the 3000 and kept the EU2000 companion for emergencies ... YMMV

Add the remote start stop kit and you will really love it. You can do it yourself in a couple of hours. Couple different ones mine was $160.00 on ebay. The expensive one will let you select eco mode remotely and some other options. Mine starts, starts with choke, and shuts down.

You may want a solar system for the trailer/property. Check the airforum classsifeds.

Got one on the Airstream (Although I plan on upgrading it) and a buddy is checking with a friend of his who owns a solar company into me getting the panels at cost.

I'll take a look though.

All this advice is correct. I have the EU2000i but I don't use it with the AC. Actually, I've never needed the AC - We live in Oregon!

The EU2000i has enough power to run the AC on low. It's the startup that draws the biggest load. And if you don't supply the AC with enough juice on startup, you will toast your AC. That's what I hear anyway, and really I shouldn't even be talking because I'm sure plenty of people in the southern states have actual experience trying this.

We boondock a lot, and I have a 100' cord for the genny and we can't even hear it for movie night.

I think Yamaha makes a 2400 or 2800 that will run an air conditioner with only one generator. However, if you like Hondas, in Arizona you'll will need two EU2000i's (standard and companion) with a parallel kit, or a single Honda 3000.

Also, unless you are a desert rat, it much easier to head to the mountains to escape the summer heat. It's also cheaper, because running a generator all day (or 24/7) really sucks gas.

It's bulky and heavy so it takes 2 (or the "deer hoist" I bought for the purpose) to schlep it up into the bed of the truck. However, it's amazingly quiet and reliable and has a big tank built-in for long run time. If you always remember to shut it down using the fuel cutoff and let it run the carb dry instead of turning off the key (at least when you're going to let it sit for a while) it starts easily every time (as long as you remember to turn the fuel cutoff back on first, DAMHIK).

I'd buy the EF3000iSEb again, but it looks like I won't have to for a long time.

I have an Cummins Onan 3200. Runs the a/c just fine; however, it weighs 150 lbs when full of gas (3 gal). Takes me and the wife (both of us are weight lifters and under 50) to remove it from the 4X4 truck and put it back in. I got a super deal on it used (11 hours total), but would have much preferred the eu2000 for the reduced weight. If you don't plan on running the a/c, go with the eu2000. The eu2000 will fit inside the cab of you truck for security vice having to put the larger unit in the back of the truck.

I put the dual Honda 2000 set in the truck bed (have a shell over it) along with the gas tanks and spare propane tank and ..... The stuff is secure as long as I remember to lock the two handles of the lift window and the rear gate to the bed.

At least I can still lift them into the bed when it is lowered by letting air out of the rear truck air bag suspension.

I have the pair of Hondas and for A/C run them in parrallel. I start them 2 or 3 times over the winter and run them for a while. They always start right up, with minimal effort, (maybe 3 pulls at most). I too start the A/C with eco switches off, and turn them on after A/C running. Good dependable units.

I have a 2500 suburban. I also have a spinal injury (C5-C7, Upper spine)
And the weight of the 2000 is definitely a consideration. (I plan on ordering Monday)

Thank you for the tips!

Here's another option

http://www.vmsales.com/New_Images___Text_Layout_1.html

I have two -- one for each gennie. Work exactly as advertised. Gives me 40-45 hours of run time for each unit between fill ups
