@Xrad13, the generator just has a standard 3-prong 'female' outlet - the same type of outlet that you have all over your house. So all you need is the adapter that you use to plug your Basecamp power cable into an extension cord to plug into your garage power outlet, etc. you just plug it into the generator instead of your garage outlet....

In the 2000 watt Honda genset world, there are two different models one can buy to create a linkable matched set. One unit has the usual 30 amp outlet like at every trailer park. The other has a standard duplex outlet just like in the house.

Thank you!

This cooled off our BC quickly, and brought it down from 95 degrees or so to 72 degrees.
Thank you for reporting back! We are picking ours up this weekend and this addresses one of the biggest questions I had.

I just bought my BC and am thinking about buying the Honda EUi2200; good to see the feedback here. The folks at the dealership recommended this one.

That EU2200i should be an excellent choice. There are cheaper generators out there, but none quieter.
