Sorry I'm late...got stuck in traffic at 207.130.48.70

Did you get this resolved? For sure, the Honda dealer can confirm each unit is operating properly with a load bank test set, and that would let you know if the issue is with one or the other EU2 or something about your Cloud.

If possible, bring the Cloud to the dealer, and he can also use the load bank to measure to power draw of all the energized systems on board. This can also help isolate where an excessive draw or other problem.

Depending on the configuration of the devices, some may be causing a problem if they expect the power source to be using a neutral-bonded circuit (where neutral and ground wires are connected together). I've see issue with outlet testers, and UPS (back-up power supply battery systems for computers) that refuse to work unless they see a neutral-bonded connection. I mention this because Honda EU-series generators are NOT neutral-bonded, but it's very likely the power outlet at the campground is neutral-bonded.

Can you replicate the problem and narrow it down to just the A/C or other on-board devices?

Question

Bob,

Could a neutral-bonded dog-bone be used with the parallel Honda's?

I use one on my single 2000i to "fool" the ground fault indicator on our surge protector.

Yes, a male plug with the neutral/ground wired together would do the job. Here's some photo of one:








Always consult with a qualified/licensed electrician to confirm adherence to all laws, codes, regulations, etc.
