generator

I finally fixed my Honda EU2000's to where they are easy and safe to use! I built a box with aluminum top and sides, a mesh floor, 6 "x12" louvers in the sides, and 12"x24" drop down doors in front and back. The drop down doors also have mesh to keep prying fingers out. With the side louvers, front and back drop dop downs and mesh floor they get plenty of air for breathing and ventilation. I can use 1 generator or both in tandem giving me all of the power I need. I can use the box in the bed of my truck, which makes for a very quite install, or set it on the ground, chain the box to the frame of the coach, and leave it there. The box weighs less than 1 EU2000. I can run the generators locked in the box for security and saftey, no one can mess with the generators or get hurt. Of course if anyone really wanted them they could cut the lock but if they really wanted they could steal the whole coach. I will send a couple of photo's---hope the idea helps someone.
Ron

Great idea, Ron. Please do post pics.
I was thinking of getting a second one and putting it on a roll-around type frame with a strap. I don't want to lose the portability and light weight of the units. Can 2 of them in the box be lifted easily??

Hello uwe,
When I resized the pics. they were saved in a pdd format and I can't figure how to get them into a jpeg or another format that is accepted here. Give me your e-mail address and I will e-mail them to you. Sorry for the screw up.
Ron

By the way the box and 2 hondas are too much for me--I take them out 1 at a time.

Has anyone built a box on the front of the trailer, behind the propane tanks to store a honda generator?

Ron, that's a great looking setup! Did you fabricate the parallel cables or buy them from Honda??

I made the cable assembly---got the idea from another post on the forum---very easy to make.

Cool

rnabors


What a neat setup. I have a 34 Excella and have been searching for generator that I can use with it. So far the generators I have found are very pricey and heavy. I like what you did and I would like to know what size generators did you get? And, do they supply you enough to run your AC?

I bought a Honda EU3000 last year and it will run my 34' without any effort. It can run all night with the A/C on - helpful on the hot Texas nights.
