Yamaha EF2000is to be used to power my 23' Safari. Main task to recharge house battery while off the grid boondocking! Also the Ms hair dryer. Sorry I left out this detail! (emoticon by request)

I plan to plug the shore power cord into the Yamaha and use inside outlets to power lights, computer, tv, hair dryer and charge battery. Although not all at the same time. And yes I want to avoid danger!

We've used our Honda i2000 in wet weather several times, foggy, misty, and light rain, and it keeps on ticking along like normal - I've moved it under cover when running wet, and haven't been shocked yet - not something I recommend, but when a rain squall hits, you jump and run!

Also haven't had tripping problems with the GFI while running the Honda, wet or dry!

Honda has made one of those few products that performs better than advertised, hasn't been obsoleted by the mfg'r, seems to run forever with minimal maintenance, and will never give this user, 'buyers remorse'!

That little red machine just keeps giving and giving when we're off the grid...probably the greatest RV product we've ever owned!...keeps the beer cold and the TV set running at home when a storm hits our electrical service, as well...
