Honda EU2000i Companion Generator

I just purchased a second Honda 2000 generator the companion model. In the instructions that came with the companion cables it says to distribute the loads equally between the two generators. In the 2000's owners manual it does not mention that. I assumed I could just hook the shore power to the 30 amp outlet on the companion generator. Can anyone offer advise on the proper way to use the two.
Thanks!

You connect the two together using the parallel cords and then connect the trailer shore power to the companion 30 amp socket.

I was unable to find the directions you are asking about. Could you please post the entire paragraph that contains the text in question?

--Thanks!

Sailor...if you run your AC you need to hook them up in tandem...but for all non-AC uses your companion generator will do just fine. That's why I b ought the set...unless I think I'll need the AC I'll shed 47lbs and just take the companion and hook it directly into the 30 amp. outlet. Lumatic was correct. jon

I am about to pull the trigger on a pair of 2000i gen sets. What is the advantage of getting a regular and a companion vs. two regular (and less expensive) 2000i and purchasing the wiring harness with the 30 amp plug?

The Companion has a 30 amp outlet so a 30 amp shore power plug will fit it.
