I would say it should have no problem. The beauty of this mount is that all one need to do to fasten it to the "base plate" (which locks into the mounted base) is remove the rubber feet, align base plate over the feet bolt holes and re-install the feet (through the base plate). If the 1000 and the 2000 feet template are the same you are golden.

Very nice installation. Unfortunately there is not enough room to mount a 2000i that has the tri-fuel conversion.

That wont work.
The 1000 is significantly slimmer than the 2000 so the security aspect will be lost. A lot of work went into getting the 2000 mount just right.

If you bolted to the flanges of the battery box, how did you get nuts on the bolts?

Drilled through both the battery box cover and the box flange. Bolt the bottom (receiver) section of the generator mount to the Battery Box, no problem feeding bolts through drilled holes and tighten nuts to secure.

Based on what I read in other RV threads the EU2000 (which I also own) only puts out 8 amps with unregulated voltages, even with the special Honda "battery charging cord". I'm reading this thread with interest due to my imminent 65 Caravel purchase, but now I have doubts…

edit: 12v charging

I don't mean to be obtuse, Teton Stream, but my battery box, also a 2013 20" FC, has battery box flanges bent INWARD, that is, into the box, toward the batteries. This would place the nuts in the box and impossible to reach. Or am I missing something?

Interesting, mine are bent outwards.

As far as I know, none of the mainstream generators are great for battery charging directly (from the 12v output), but they'll run the converter-charger (or a regular battery charger) just fine. As long as your trailer is set up to charge its own batteries when on shore power you should be able to get just as much charging amperage on a 2k inverter generator as you do on 30A shore power.

Teton Stream,

If bolts go through battery box cover and mounting flanges, does this mean you can't open the battery box?

Also, are bolt heads and/or nuts exposed? Could a thief remove mounting bolts and take generator? (However, I assume the thief would also have to remove the battery box cover's hinge, too.)

Yes, you must remove the receiver plate to access the battery box. I have only accessed the battery yearly to add water and check battery connections so I did not see this as a terminal (sorry the pun) issue. The head are not exposed for they are concealed by the generator secured on top of receiver plate. (I apologize to engineering for bastardizing the terminology of your unit!) I do not believe a thief could remove the unit as installed and locked. The hinge has no impact on the security of the unit.

With access to just the nuts, the unit remains secure. The mounting bolts just spin if you try to remove the nuts. One day we will get around to making a video that shows this....

Is there a model that will power the A/C (30 amp) by chance? Semper fi.

For the generator in the thread title, the typical method is to use 2 (one being the Companion model) running in parallel.

If you want to do it with a single generator, Honda EU3000is, Yamaha EF3000iSEB, etc.

Some have reported success with the Yamaha EF2400iSHC with smaller AC units, and that often turns into a religious debate.
