A strong 'yes' in response to your question, then I'll mosey around ... I put up links with some useful information here. Though the energy content of LP is less and there is a small loss of power, you should have plenty with parallelled eu2000i's. The consequence of not using the combined amperage of two eu2000i's will be strain and burning out of the compressor. I looked at a very bad Overlander once where the PO just used a 30A-15A adapter and burned out two A/Cs without knowing why -- assured me I could have an RV tech fix it, but the A/C was new... The highest demand is at compressor startup, then draw drops off a bit -- others have posted with some authority on this and I don't have the exact #s. One of the threads in my link above seems to give definite time limits before you'll exhaust your LP tanks though.

Actually It might power the AC if it can get past the startup current. I have a Kill-A-watt meter hooked up to my trailer cord. I am currently plugged into my sisters garage. Batteries fully charged backgroud current about 3 amps.
Current draw with the AC running. about 12.5-12.7 Amps, new airconditioner.
The unit should be able to put out 16+ amps of power. 2000/120=16.66666

It's just that 20+ amp startup surge that would be the problem. I have a 13K Coleman, and IF I turn off the eco-throttle, and IF absolutely nothing else is on in the trailer, then I can get the A/C to start on the generator. And it isn't happy doing it, either. I have a 3600 watt generator that powers the A/C, and everything else I can turn on, in the Airstream, but it is noisy, and a gas hog (Briggs & Stratton, not Honda). Fuel consumption is .5 gal/hour, with a 1.1 gal tank.

Honda EU2000i

We need to purchase a generator this model seems very popular. Someone on here previously mentioned the Yamaha EF1000i which runs on propane. I would appreciate some guidance on how to make the decision of which one would be the better purchase as the cost is similar.

Just purchased a Honda Eu2000i locally. They had them on sale for $900 plus tax as part a sale promotion during the EAA (Experimental Aircraft) show in Oshkosh which starts on Friday for 10 days.

Do any of you have ideas for using the Honda 2000's in bad weather?
I don't want to expose ours to rain etc., and figure it will happen sooner or later....Some sort of mini-tent/cover etc.?
Regarding purchase, last December we were going to buy (2) EU2000I units and the parallel kit online, and were surprised that Camping World beat the best pricing I could find at that time. The Hondas were on sale for $950 each, and they threw in the 30A parallel kit (with built in ampmeter) and a DC
battery charge cable for free (total of $1993 including tax).
